Guess without whom the team would lose the spirit to go on despite all odds? It’s this man right here! He’s the one to bring us all together.

Travelling to different places and exploring their culture and food fascinates him ever since. A soul and mind of the hills, he enjoys basking in the glory of nature. His cooking skills will uplift your mood at any point in time! His ultimate love being pictures, meet Devashish, our Photographer and Producer. We exist because he does. 


A Malayali by birth, he has spent most of his time around Bongs and in the Himalayan hills. He’s currently back home and indulging in visual storytelling.

She’s usually fiction-writing at resto-bars or busy reading what goes into her skincare. Other times, she’s indulging all her senses to feel, realise and write about the beauty of the world and the people in it. She loves reading pictures; experiencing the layers, thoughts and stories behind and in the lens. Social media consumes 18 hours of her day when she’s not on a budget-friendly solo trip. She’s a proud doggo mama who loves exploring the human psyche. She’s easy to poach with some Margherita, Tales of Woe, and Ludovico. Meet Romita, our Content-Head.

She is a big-time foodie, loves to eat and also makes others eat with her. She can be your partner for those hundreds of mid-day chai sessions. Meet Poorva, our Content Specialist.
