I was born in Rohru, a small town about 100kms away from Shimla, known for its apple orchards, but having spent all of my life outside, I hardly know this region. So, every day I make it a point to drive to a new village and spend my evening there. Hope I’ll be able to visit all of the villages very soon.

Panasonic gave me their Lumix GH5 + Vario 12-35 2.8 O.I.S lens to test for 10 days. I took it to explore the remote valley of Rohru for my ongoing project, Life in Shimla.

The first time I saw Bharmour was when I turned eighteen. I had just got a drivers license and I had a lot of free time. The map of Himachal I had at that time showed Bharmour as the last place one could drive to on that side of Himachal.

Having had no experience on how to deal with video footage, I made my first video on iMovie and upload it on a new youtube channel called, Himalayan Roads.
