Manjulika Pramod – PENDOWN


Pendown, Travel Blogger, Manjulika




My name is Manjulika Pramod and I take pride in calling myself a travel and lifestyle blogger. I had a crush on blogging in 2009 and ever since then my love for it has grown tremendously.  The blogger in me is also a telecom engineer, short-story writer, big time foodie and a compulsive traveler. I  have two published short stories in books ‘Chicken soup for the soul- Indian college students’ and ‘Lovelets’.  I quit my job of 8 years in 2015 to break the shackles of standard 9 to 6 routine, to travel and to appreciate the finer things of life. Having traveled to 18 countries and 17 states of India, I never fail to mention Oslo in Norway as my favorite city and living in Riyadh for eight weeks as one of the most thrilling experiences of my life. Last year, my visit to South Africa was a life changing experience.



Recently, 8 of my travel blogs have been published in a coffee table book called Musafir.

  29. मंजुलिका …. आपके पापा से आपका नाम सुनकर ही अच्‍छा लगा था। पहली बार में विद्या बालान के दमदार किरदार की याद आ गई थी। आज आपके पापा से उनके आफिस में मिलने का मौका मिला। आपके बारे में आपके पापा से सुनकर बहत अच्‍छा लगा। जब वह आपके बारे में बता रहे थे तो उनके चेहरे पर एक खास चमक थी। वह आप पर बहुत गर्व करते हैं। आप उनका सम्‍मान और अभिमान हैं। जब उन्‍होंने आपके ‘पैनडाउन’ ब्‍लॉग का जिक्र किया तो जिज्ञासा हुई कि आज ही आपका ब्‍लॉग देखा जाए। देखने के साथ ही एक सुखद आश्‍चर्य और एक बेटी का अपने पिता के प्रति अनूठे लगाव का पता चला। आप सोच रही होंगी …. वो कैसे …..? आपने अपने नाम के साथ अपने पापा के नाम को जोड़कर ज़माने के सामने मिसाल पेश की है कि बेटियां अपने पापा की लाडली ही नहीं अपितु भावनात्‍मक और आत्मिक रूप से भी गहरी जुड़ी होती हैं। आपको और आपके पापा प्रमोद जी को हार्दिक बधाई और शुभकामनाएँ।
