Hi, I’m Shalini, A storyteller from India. Born and brought up in the city of Kolkata, West Bengal. I’m a traveller and food micro-blogger by heart.
Started my career at the age of 16 thinking that while I finish college I would have lots of money to travel. Such a childish plan I tell you!
I have been volunteering at different NGOs, like Save The Children, Leprosy Mission since my school days. The urge to learn new things every day keeps me on my toes and always highly motivated. Then I started working in the corporate, life felt trapped inside the cubical so I decided to quit and take up a job in the media industry. I was doing pretty well spent about 10 months as an assistant director in a media production house in Kolkata. Then took a break and moved over to Hyderabad worked for 3 months. As they say, I got addicted to travelling couldn’t stop myself, kept rolling from one city to another.
My next stop was Mumbai, I have worked in Mumbai for almost a year and a half. I was diagnosed with severe depression. On the road towards healing, I realised. All I ever wanted to do was to travel, budget travels all over India. Apart from my everyday life, that revolves around work, study and travel. I am finishing my Master’s degree in Child Psychology.
I love to explore with the locals and write stories about real people, I try to bring out different things that identify the true meaning of life. Pushing my limits each day.
Hope you’ll enjoy the journey we are about to head out on…
My blog is all about how I decided to follow my heart and started my journey to be my own boss. How I bring inspiring stories to you from my everyday walks of life, as there is so much to learn. How I dared to dream even when I knew that I belonged from a middle-class family. I am all ready to chase my dream, to be a budget traveller and explore my country India. I have travelled to 16 states ad 3 UT so far. I especially focus on offbeat India. My blog is also about real-life struggle and stories, which people and society have started to talk about. All the issues that we term it as “Gossip Issues”
I try to live a plastic-free, environment-friendly life. Support sustainable fashion and much more. My Instagram stories will never bore you but will keep you updated regarding Travel, Fashion, Lifestyle and Real Life.
