"How did your parents allow you to go?" is an often asked question. I still get this, even though I haven't been home for the past four months. The underlying question, I believe is, "How do your parents trust you?"
Once upon a time I used to be a regular normal person, a Mumbaikar. I did what most people did - worked from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday and chilled over weekends. Then things changed. My travel bug grew tentacles and got the better of me. I wanted to travel and write. I realised that not only was there an India out there waiting to be explored, but there were experiences that needed to be narrated.
