Prathap Nair

Although still stuck in a desk job, Prathap is an ardent traveler, amateur food blogger, avid reader and a dawdling writer. While battling with an attention deficit disorder, responsible travel, organic farming and keeping abreast of the latest on gadgets interest him as much as seeing his book (heís not sure on what yet) in print someday.
