I started off by reading. In Calcutta we would read a lot and talk a lot about what we read. I then moved to theatre. In Bangalore we would act a lot and direct adaptations believing ourselves to be quite creative at it. I then went on to study how businesses are run. In Indore we would study everything from a tea stall to a salt-to-software company. Now I work with a company that organises travel. And it all makes sense.
To really suggest a place that would suit you I would have to read a lot. This meant asking you what you would really like to explore, doing research on villages around Jaipur or polyandric tribes in Eastern Arunachal Pradesh and understanding your reaction to itineraries.
Once I had read a lot, one of us would have to design a journey that reaches a crescendo - like a play. The crescendo can be a highlight or just a place that takes your breath away.
Planning, though, is only half the job. The secret ingredient is managing things on ground - managing people... and inanimate resources.
