Who are you?
That hardly matters. Just for the record, I have been trying to explore the ignored and the unknown destinations of this country India since 2011. I mostly travels solo and travel on budget.
Are you really a slacker?
Well, not exactly. I have to do various things to survive. For a long time, I used to be a corporate slave and the title of this site was nothing more than a Big Lebowski inspired fantasy. But thankfully that is past now and I survive on freelance work, without having to visit the office.
What are the places you are interested in?
While there is no discrimination between destinations, my particular interests lie in desolated Himalayan valleys and forgotten archaeological vestiges of the great Indian plains.
What exactly is your long term mission?
I see myself as a travel blogger of the proletariat. I am an extreme budget traveller of offbeat destinations. I want to show that even people who did not top their exams and do not have high flying jobs can also break free from the tyranny of life at times and travel on small budgets. Luxury resorts and fine dining are not for me. I will sleep on the footpath if that is legal and saves money. I never buy a travel package and avoid guides unless it is extremely necessary. I love very basic, budget hotels, sleeper class trains and state transport buses with open windows (non AC). Through these travelogues, I want to build content that provides genuinely useful tips and bridge the information gap for these offbeat destinations of Incredible India.
