Hello and welcome to my virtual nest.
My name is Shivani Pandey…..I ’m a Travel writer/photographer based in New Delhi, India …..
“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure” Paulo Coelho…..
Well in my case my heart truly beats for three things- writing, photography and travel..… From a budding management professional to an international writer my journey into the world of journalism has somewhat treaded a unique path …. A vagabond in the corporate world to a spirited journalist …..the road has been exciting, adventurous and very enlightening….especially because of my extensive travel both within as also outside of India…..it kind of helped in bringing out some of my finest creative expressions in the form of my work published in various languages including English , Hindi , French , Spanish etc.
I hope to share some of my interesting travel experiences and pictures here…..I feel a traveller in India has to be an adventurer at heart …. The journey that shows you beautiful monuments and landscapes also shows you inadequacy, ignorance and sheer pain.
To quote Paulo Coelho once again…”When I have been truly searching for my treasure, I’ve discovered things along the way that I never would have seen”
Since my writings are largely related with destinations and their beautiful side on one hand (or for one magazine) and development needs of the less fortunate on the other (for the other magazine) …..You will tend to see a sharp contrast and a constant struggle between the very fine and the very helpless….I guess this journey is not just about documenting and sharing it’s also about reaching the point of objectivity and detachment…..
Hope you enjoy the pictures and posts….I would love to hear from you….do leave your feedback and comments ….if you like you could join the email newsletter …. Thanks for reading. …. lots of love
