Cindu Chandrasekharan is a media professional and a willing victim of wanderlust. Despite all her attempts to conquer the high seas and the hallowed mountains, she is still uncertain whether she is a beach person or a mountain person. She is a compulsive traveller, an enthusiastic travel writer and an incidental photographer. To make up for the curse of eternal optimism, she is blessed with boundless energy and a penchant for new experiences. Cindu is an observant wanderer and her writing captures her easy nature and wit. She is a nature lover and loves to explore different cultures, the less familiar the better. She is equally happy exploring her favourite landscape, India. "Not all those who wander are lost" as J R R Tolkein noted, sums up her need to move constantly.
