Have you heard the lyrics of Baz Luhrman? Do so here. I empathize with all he says.

My life is a continuous adventure and for the last few years I have created a wondrous homestay in the mountains of Manali. A conscious living space surrounded by apple orchards, deodars and wind in the trees. The Lama House is a place that I am happy to share with people who want the tranquillity of the mountains, walks up the hill and picnics in meadows. Good books in the garden, amazing views, a chat with the neighbour. Great coffee, great whisky, some good tea and  nice people to get to know.

Wandering is what I have done best, which introduced me to people, places, experiences, adventures and great learning. Recounting the stories keeps me reliving them.

I grew up hiking, trekking, camping, sailing, exploring. I took all I knew and created and ran Outdoor Adventures India, one of the best wilderness adventure companies, I had a grand time doing it for almost 23 years.

I then set up and ran Outward Bound programmes for India. Experiences made for learning and  development. I now Chair the organization while also being a part of Outward Bound International’s team of Reviewers.

I am a certified senior executive coach and counsellor. Over the years I have found myself counselling numerous young persons through life choices, work &  developmental issues and the whole gamut that creates growth. Making a difference matters.

I travel, write and promote some of the best trips/locations I find and help you customize trips from my huge storehouse of amazing places. Having trekked, rafted, driven in most parts of our subcontinent, and various parts of the world, I am happy to share my discoveries and it is a joy to plan an interesting holiday.

That I am able to find both sinful luxury and budget travel an almost equal enchantment helps.

Professionalism, honesty, style, spontaneity, humour, adventure, friendship, good manners & magic are important words in my dictionary.

The magic of discovery, a companionable walk, wind on the water, a bright corner, a golden moment, a special coffee, the ephemerality of it all. This is more my concept of travel than the museums, galleries, forts and palaces.

In life, for me, the happiness quotient is the basis of success.
