A Punekar who loves to travel, drink beer and play with dogs. My blog and social media reflects a mix of these 3 things along with a lot of fun, whacky, out of the ordinary commentary of things that matter the most. Being a rebel is life so a bit of ranting and standing against the established order is included free!

Drop a line (or 2) if any of these things matter to you – 

Offbeat travel enthusiast to experience your farm, home-stay, guest house or hostel (I love to travel and prefer the backpacking life. Pipa the Lab will also tag along if its a pet friendly place. Check out my Travel VLOG on YouTube)

Opinion and feedback on your newly opened eatery or bar (real honest reviews & feedback, I’m not those pretentious types)

Review a gadget, app or tech enabled service (I love gadgets and would love to review your apps, products or services)

Taste your home or experimental brews (Beer > WiFi. I’m not BJCP certified but understand the finer nuances of beer pretty well. Try me!)

Play with your pets (No explanation needed. If I’m around, I will accept your invite immediately)

    I really like your style of writing. Congratulations for being featured as the Best Foodies and Food Bloggers Pune.

    Lil bit about us: We were known by the name of “Kadhai” earlier. Recently we have rebranded ourselves as Kapoor Chola Bhatura and Jalebi. We are best known as a quick service restaurant serving Chola Bhatura, Dollar Kesar Jalebi fried in Ghee, Tikki, Chaats and more.
    . Initially we had only one outlet in Aundh and now we have expanded to three outlets i.e waked, pimple saudagar and Baner. All the outlets are in prime location.

    Now we are inviting food bloggers to visit our outlets and review our products.

    Kindly let us know how can we collaborate with you. You can drop me aq line on dharmishtha@tulipsindia.com
