About Myself

I am not a born traveller.

Travelling is my karma.

Wandering quietly in the woods

Wandering quietly in the woods

Why so…

Yes, I am married to an Olive green. Almost every two years we pack up everything in those black trunks and move to a new place, sometimes to a big city but mostly to remote towns of India.

Initially I used to be quite pissed at this style of living. Cribbed and complained. But soon realized it was better to make the best of what I have (remember those SUPW classes where you were asked to make the best out of wasteJ).

Well, slowly I started loving it and now I can proudly say I am a traveller for I explore the hidden gems in India. I explore these places not as a random tourist who hangs a camera, clicks the touristy spots, explores a bit of hidden areas and then comfortably goes back to his metro city. I stay in these places. Period. I explore the way no one does. I explore for basic needs, I explore to entertain myself, and I explore to survive.

Love to…

I love to read. My Kindle is my best friend. Though, I also have a huge collection of paperback for I can never decide which mode of reading is best. As of now, I am happy reading, anything and everything.

Passionate about…

It is needless to say that I am passionate about blogging. Quite evident, isn’t it?

Can’t stay without…

My gadgets – Laptop, Mobile, Bose music player, Wi-Fi, Kindle, Tablet

    “I stay in these places. Period. I explore the way no one does. I explore for basic needs, I explore to entertain myself, and I explore to survive.”- got to know quite a bit from this two-liner 🙂
    I tried hard to be an ebook reader but failed miserably!

    • gitanjali says:

      Yes Anunoy, truth of my life 🙂

      I have learnt to enjoy the best of both worlds. When I am travelling or reading late at night I prefer Kindle. When I am in love with a writer and want to feel his creation between my fingers I buy a book:)

      • Anunoy Samanta says:

        Then may be kindle is lighter to hold than my tablet… Sigh… Of late I read a novel only when I’m traveling.

        • gitanjali says:

          Apart from being lighter Kindle has a system which doesn’t pressurize your eyes. Isn’t it good especially for people like me with heavy reading glasses.

          • Anunoy Samanta says:

            Ok “heavy reading glasses” would be taken care of subsequent photo posts :-/
            It’s not just the fault of LCD, I think I got psychological issues against e-version 😛

          • gitanjali says:

            Yes, that I agree Anunony. You have psychological issues…lol (having the last laugh now).
