I’m Srinivas, a Wandering Thinker, Pondering Writer, and an avid traveler. I’ve traveled to various parts of India and write interesting stories of people and places I experience. I’m in love with the Himalayas and makes it a ritual to go there at least once a year. I aspire to be a travel author one day hoping to write a magnanimous journey of my sojourns across the world!
Other than that I’m an Advertising, Tech, Start-Up Enthusiast and a keen follower of latest trends across the Social Web. I have a keen thirst for knowledge, hence the love for travel and broadening my horizon.
While this is my travel blog I also have a personal blog focused on my passion for Advertising, Social Media, Creative Writing, Technology, Random Ramblings, Short stories, Mythology and personal stuff @ www.srinistuff.in
Travel Writer – From being a casual blogger and creative writer since 2005 I slowly found interest towards 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. Less dreams, more reality…

First Shot at Writing a Book – This is just preview to my early and first amateur work in novel writing and hope to grow more to be able to publish my own Novel based on my travel experiences. http://childofthewindd.wordpress.com
This book talks about a 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…
