About VAK

Who Am I? I wish I could answer that question. The great sage Ramana says if you can answer this question you have achieved Nirvana. And yes, I am in on a quest for this answer. Which is why I left Corporate Life after 25 satisfying years in Sr Management roles at Apple, Sun & Wipro.

I am a Professional, A Seeker and a Creative change agent. I find happiness sitting by a stream in a small jungle lodge overlooking the mountains far away from the hustle & bustle of the city. You will find many such off – beat destinations in my Blog “A Few Good Things” – places you can visit to recharge.

Over the last 2 years I have discovered many fascinating places in and around Bangalore – places which I never knew existed. Many of these could vie for a place in the UNESCO World Heritage site.

I have shared this as detailed curated trips on my blogs. I am now offering my services as a travel companion to show you these amazing places, not as a tour guide but as a friend. Be rest assured that I will treat you the way I treat my friends or family. This is not my career – this is my passion.

My favourite meal is piping hot freshly prepared “Khichdi” or a soothing bowl of “Curd Rice”, but I have ventured out and explored unique restaurants in Bangalore. From Vegan restaurants to places that serve dishes only made with Millets, I have reviewed most of Bangalore’s traditional / unique restaurants.

“A Few Good Things” is exactly what it means – a compilation of Good Things served to you regularly through my Blog, FB & Instagram pages. So do join up, enjoy the fresh perspective on Travel, Spirituality & Daily Life.

    Hi Vak: The article on Rudram attracted my attention to your blog and appreciate the details provided.

    Moving further on the blog of Hinduism, I have a problem with your dating I am no expert myself, but it seems your pattern of dating somehow matches with what the Western Scholars (that I have read on internet) are trying to peddle. Since most of the Indologists being Westerners and their works obviuosly influences the output generated in terms of blogs.

    Nevertheless great work, FYI recently in Haryana excavations reveal of a civilization much older than Mohenjo Daro & Harappa, this may further clarify/add to the mystery of dating our epics.

    Michel Danino lectures at IIT Kanpur also shed some light on ancient India.

    VAK – As usual, your ability to “story write” is simply amazing. When you find some time (I know you are extremely busy) you should story tell and record those videos for general public. I know you have all those gadgets which will simply in creating those nice, creative tit-bits 🙂
