BGBTD About Me Life is Adventure


Photography is one of my favourite interests for last 5 to 6 years. Trekking has been my passion for last 2 years. Photography became integral part of my treks on weekends. As one of famous quote says “PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!”, I became experienced photographer as time goes with more treks. Though i am an amateur photographer, it was my first ever Himalayan trek which gave me opportunity to showcase my photography skill in an exhibition.

  • Photography Exhibition – THE SECOND MOMENT (21st to 30th September 2013).

Trekking, Cycling and Photography will give us unforgettable stories to remember forever. Make them documenting is always valuable because others can read it and prepare their itinerary for their travel. I have written few travelogues and it is my sincere effort to show case my talent to world via my personal page on travelogues. Requesting people to go through it. Hope it will be useful!!!

Keep exploring and enjoy Mother Nature because She is Beautiful. It is our responsibility to save this beauty and keep it clean!!!
