I am a scientist by profession and an explorer by passion. Outdoor activities used to be my way of relaxing, but then I was diagnosed with a desmoid tumor (nicknamed ‘Parmanu’) in early 2016. Since then, there has been a lot of physical and emotional turmoil before I reached the current state of peaceful co-existence with Parmanu. She is still growing and aggressive but I motivate her to enjoy this beautiful life and see the fascinating world with me. On this website, I plan to share stories about the various little adventures Parmanu and I have done together.
