The Team





I am an IT Project Manager based in Pune. I describe myself as a traveller, photographer and blogger, in that order. You will find my articles ranging from travel and photography to books and cinema. Happily married to Ekta.




I am a Product Manager working with an IT Company in Pune, India. I love travelling and have acquired a flair for photography. You can find my travelogues from the USA and beyond on our blog. I dream to become an entrepreneur someday.


Our Journey

Shadows Galore started as a photo-blog on Blogspot to fulfil the requirements of a photography competition sometime in 2010. After more than one year of hibernation, we revived it again on 24th June 2011 and started including travelogues along with the photographs we were clicking from our newly purchased cameras. This continued till we felt the need to expand further and migrated to our own self-hosted platform. Slowly we started expanding the scope and added our own learning from photography, snippets from our passion for cinema and books. What you see currently is Shadows Galore 4.0, based on a powerful platform to give strength to our wings.

In this journey, we have found immense love of our readers and will remain indebted to our friends who pitched in with their own stories. Special thanks to them!
