This edition of the #TravellerStories features Pamit Anand , who heads Marketing for an estabilished dot com company, for a living.
Why the need for such a series like TravellerStories? We hear so many travel stories, but we’d be able to appreciate the travel stories at a relative level, only when these same questions are put to people at different place, we’d probably have a sense of awe towards how geography and history places a bias on our thinking. So these are nice postcards that you want to quickly rummage through, over an evening snack. Yes, just meant over tea and biscuits.
A) Where are you from and what do you do for a living?
I’m from Mumbai. and I work in Marketing.
B) What’s the most cliched thing that outsiders say or feel about your city/country?
- You are from Mumbai, you must have met Salman Khan
- You are from India, and yet you speak fluent English
C) What’s that one dish travellers should try out at your city and where?
- Keema Pav @ Stadium, Churchgate
- NALLI Nihari @ Noor Mohammadi, Byculla
- Butter Chicken/Dal Makhani @ SHIMLA DHABA, NH48 ( the place mainly caters to Truckers/Lorry Drivers. But should be checked out if you have the will)
D) Reg exploring places outside your city, which is your favourite place (and why)
- Alibaug is a nice Beach area.
- I also like hanging out near Colaba Causeway, Marine Drive and Chowpatty @ Night. Its full of life
E) Of all your travels on work, which city charmed you the most and why?
- London –> Multiculturalism, Human values, and most importantly – its preservation of history/tradition while retaining modernity
Snowing and Braving it
F) What is the craziest thing you have ever done while travelling.
- Craziest thing I’ve done while travelling to Europe’s second largest peak was to go there without gloves and jumpers. I actually forgot them in the hotel. Just had 2 layers of clothing on me and the team had to go to Mt. Titlis at the very top. Was lucky not to get away with no frost-bites, thanks to my body-fat (for once)
