We aim at helping people discover the soul that pervades India via stories interweaving her Culture, History and beautiful places with our Walking Tours, Yoga, Food Experiences & Art collaborations.
The richness of Indian heritage hardly needs any introduction. A system of mighty rivers nourishing some of the world's oldest civilisations, a great geographical diversity fostering a cultural kaleidoscope, and a strategic location at the boundary of the east and west have led to it becoming one of the most happening spots on the planet! This melange however, has also rendered the Indian heritage such an intricate design that can be overwhelming for an uninitiated seeker to comprehend. Also, with their origins shrouded in myth, the cool scientific rationale behind a lot of traditions are lost upon people.
A fun-filled and experiential way of surfacing these hidden gems, and a chance to interact with their aspiring bearers can help the seekers appreciate India for much more than just its colours and also help ease them into our seemingly eccentric culture. It can also arm the practitioners of this age-old culture with the right arsenal to make necessary changes to some of the practices, in keeping with the changing context, so that their richness may be enjoyed for years to come!
We have started our endeavour in Varanasi - a microcosm of India! Here we organise Walking Tours, Yoga, and Food experiences and Artists collaborations. We are also in the process of coming out with a mobile application that would let travellers explore different elements of the City's Heritage using GPS-enabled audio-visual Guided Tours.
In time to come, and with your support, we plan to cover as much of India as we can! 🙂
