Deeptangan Pant

An engineer by profession, Deeptangan likes to explore India, meet its people, savour its cuisines, climb its mountains and sail down its rivers. Born and brought up in the shadow of the Great Himalayas, he reveres the mighty mountains as the temples where I have been educated. When not writing code, he is trekking in the Himalayas and the Western Ghats, writing, reading books and enjoying music.
