A Few Good Things

"Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller." – Ibn Battuta

About VAK

Hi ;

I am based out of Bangalore. After 25 years of Corporate life across Wipro, Sun & Apple, I called it a day. Time no longer controls me – and I am free to follow my dreams.

I love to travel and document it in detail so that fellow travellers can plan their trips easily.  I hunt for offbeat locations, resorts, restaurants and help market them through my Blogs.

My travel can be categorised under three heads

  • Fusion Day Trips – Exploring Bangalore and its surroundings
  • Short Breaks : 1 – 3 days
  • Longer Breaks:  5 – 10 days

Over time I have added other interesting entries on Spirituality and daily Life (Corporate, Personal Finance, Fitness etc. I also have sections on A few Good people.

Some of my Blogs feature high on Google Hits – for Eg if you search for “What is Rudram”  my blog may well be in the top 3. Tirupathi Travel Tips, Baevu Village, 21 Bangalore day trips etc are also some of the blogs that come in the top 10 in Google Search. My write up on Valley of Flowers, Soulitude in the Himalayas, Badami – Pattadakal, Tiruchi in 3 days, Vipassana Experience  – record a high viewership daily benefiting many . The PIO to OCI writeup has helped thousands in Bangalore to visit the FRRO office and get the necessary paperwork done.

I have Co Authored a book with my colleague Subhashish – on the Indian BPO Industry titled – Oh BPO, Structure & Chaos, Pain & Agony was a bestseller in 2007.


Feel free to reach out to me for any help on Communication, Marketing, Branding , Personal Finance, Emotional Challenges, Early day questions on Spirituality. I offer free guidance.

    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.


  3. Amazing you cover a variety of topics.
