I’m Srinivas, a Wandering Thinker, Pondering Writer, and an avid traveler. I’ve traveled to over 300+ destinations in India, Europe, and South East Asia. Been visiting the Himalayas for the last 10 years. I write interesting stories of people and places I experience. I’m in love with the Himalayas and make it a ritual to go there at least once a year. Eventually, I aspire to be a Social Entrepreneur in the Mountains and a travel author one day hoping to write a magnanimous journey of my sojourns across the world!
Other than that I’m an Advertising, Start-Up Enthusiast and a keen follower of the latest trends across the Digital Web. I have a keen thirst for knowledge, hence the love for travel and broadening my horizon. Hence now in a role that allows me to be a Human Resource thought leader, performance coach to empower personal growth and transformation at a large advertising firm based out of Mumbai.
Travel Writer – From being a casual blogger and creative writer since 2005 I slowly found interest in Travel Blogging and have written over 150 travelogues on this blog since then. My journey as a travel blogger began in March’ 2008. It all started with an on the spur of the moment trip to Goa. Something which I call #SriniOnTour… Rugged travels, backpacking my way across the country is what my travels are mostly about. More madness, less luxury.

First Shot at Writing a Book – This is just previewed to my early and first amateur work in novel writing and hopes to grow more to be able to publish my own Novel based on my travel experiences. http://childofthewindd.wordpress.com This book talks about the journey. A journey that an author takes to share someone’s love, trials and tribulations and how hope wants to surmount against all odds. How the protagonist, Samir, who is in love with Naina, yet doesn’t know if he will be able to survive the odds. This book is about the story of Samir’s life told to the author by Naina the girl who is in love with Samir and willing to do anything for him before the final chapter unfolds…
