Sights and sounds, stories and dreams, the culture of people, the secrets of streets. Show me the irony and tell me the tales, how this place has grown and how it made you change.

Along our path as wanderers we went up mountains, swam beside beaches and rode along highways. Then we ate at roadside towns, heard about faith and visited shrines. To dive deeper we met people, stayed in their villages, worked with them, shared food in a plate and then… finally, found love. To share this love, which comes from the land, its peoples, the music they make and the food they craft; with fellow beings and travelers became a goal. We called it UnCrushedLeaves

India is vast and with unimaginable diversity in topography and culture. Much of it is lies unexplored and less experienced, as most of it remains unknown. We at UnCrushedLeaves, want to unravel such places in India, for the world to know & experience. This marks the start of our journey to Explore & Experience India and bring out “the Untold”. We believe our journey is itself rewarding but want to share this joy by helping the world to experience India as is. Together lets travel.

“UnCrushedLeaves” is an endeavor of a few who, by their nature of being, have adapted themselves to their surroundings. They are not wanderers but seekers, who soak in the places they visit. They pull out experiences, which more often than not, are redeeming.

“UnCrushed Leaves” is an attempt to get one closer to such experiences & more.

I love to travel.

I firmly believe that travel makes us wiser. We travel to places, through culture, via music, with people. Food tells a story. Each day is new, introduces us to new experiences and ideas. It challenges us to absorb and adapt every day. Concepts and philosophies shaped by nature. Think about an Arctic dweller trying to imagine the Sahara. The most intriguing of all are us, the people; the most absorbent of all entities. We are shaped by geography, history, sociology, mythology, pedagogy and have the most interesting stories to share.

I find joy in the wondrous little nuances that we observe. I like to share this joy with ones I care for. I feel I care a bit for everyone. Hence, this endeavor to explore and share our experiences.

Let loose the imagination, give it wings and yet, the world will show us more!

Traveling out used to be a routine story but after being associated with UnCrushedLeaves, the word ‘travel’ has a different connotation.

All travels have now been a discovering, learning and fulfilling experience. Must say an absolutely exciting perspective towards travel and living.

Essence of travel lies in the journey, the place, its people, their culture and their tales. At UnCrushedLeaves all these became a reality, which is the most redeeming part of my association with UcL.

UnCrushedLeaves helps one and all to cherish the beautiful moments of discovering self while wandering in nature.

I look forward to have many a travelers experience this oneness with nature and self while traveling with UnCrushedLeaves.

Living in today’s ultra gadgetized (If that’s even a word) and materialistic world, we are moving far away from ourselves. Far away from hearing our inner self, our inner voice as we are more focused on the external rather than the internal.

Whenever we travel or leave the comfort zones of our lives to find new things, it in essence forces one away from all the worldly connections to dive deep and connect with oneself to become one with nature. This internal journey of connecting with oneself is what travel represents for me. This is where DisOriented Penguin and I fit in. We endeavour to capture the essence, the ethos, the spirit and the inner voices through our journeys with UnCrushedLeaves. And by sharing it we welcome everyone to be a part of our journey.

It’s interesting that one of the perceived origin of word ‘Travel’ is from the old French word travailler, which means to work strenuously, toil. Well this meaning of the word holds true even today, in ancient times it was about the physical toil today it is more about a mental one. Coincidence or foresight?




Mystery is exciting and more is the process of unraveling it. Traveling is one such mystery and unraveling it ensures one accumulates fascinating experiences. Sharing our thoughts with travelers so that they can have a life time experience and make most of their traveling moments – memorable, made me embark on the journey to explore and be part of UnCrushedLeaves.

Working with UnCrushedLeaves provides one an option to have a different take on life and people. UnCrushedLeaves gave me opportunity to work with amazing people and meet awesome travelers, who on their journey to discover places, end up discovering themselves. Love to be part of this Journey.
