I was born in Nagina, a small town in Uttar Pradesh India. I belong to a family of transporters or you can say drivers we are in this transport business since my grand father. My father is a truck driver so i have this traveling virus in my blood. I started traveling with my father on a truck as a assistant to him. So i have changed heavy tires of truck, i have traveled for nights and days on Indian roads. I always enjoyed these days of trucking there was lot of fun and learning.

So i decided on that time only that i need to see this world but not with a truck, I wanted to make those journeys a bit more comfortable and easy in terms of luxury and having some good experience. Education was the first step towards this plan. So i completed my graduation and came to Delhi and got admission in University of Delhi for my further study of post graduation.
