Hey, Welcome to PENDOWN. I am Manjulika Pramod, the content head and curator of this portal. I have been writing for more than a decade now. My website is ads free and the intention is to keep it clutter-free. All my views are authentic and unbiased. I believe there are two sides to everything-good and bad. One’s perspective makes all the difference. I try and look at the brighter side. I like to travel for stories that give me joy. I travel at my own pace as well as in collaboration with tourism boards, hospitality brands, and others. I design personal itineraries on request and for all other queries, kindly reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Few of my published works may be read through below links
Professional Qualification – Electronics and Communication Engineer.
Current: Entrepreneur, Freelance writer, Travel Blogger, and Social media Influencer.
I take pride in calling myself a travel, art, and culture blogger. I had a little crush on blogging in 2009 and since then there has been no looking back. The writer in me is an artist, storyteller, big-time foodie, and compulsive traveler. I have two published short stories ‘Chicken soup for the soul- Indian college students and ‘Lovelets’ to my credit. I have an art book too, in collaboration with Google Arts and Culture. I quit my job of 8 years in 2015 to break the shackles of the standard 9 to 6 routine, to travel, and to appreciate the finer things of life. Having traveled to 31 countries and 22 states of India, I never fail to mention Oslo in Norway as my favorite city and living in Riyadh as one of the most thrilling experiences of my life. In India, my heart beats for Kashmir.

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।
Thank you so much Sir.
You’ve got a great travelogue here.
Loved the way you have described the places, feels like I’m there.
Keep it up !

nice article..its amazing…we have got lot of knowledge about it.
I am greatly inspired by your story and how you managed to quit your full-time job. Could you please tell me how you have started blogging as I am an aspiring travel blogger.
It would be of great help.
I met Manjulika di on a luxury train in Karnataka. I was immediately and immensely impressed by the pictures she took of us and the sites unfolding at every turn of the train. Little did I know then that it was just the tip of the iceberg. Following her on Instagram is something of a visual and intellectual treat. The beauty not just of the pictures but also of the way she describes the places she visits, has been giving me major travel goals. Keep up the good work di. Hope to be like you some day.
Thank you so much girl.
I must say you are one of the bravest women I have seen. You quit your job for your passion that’s a very brave decision. It’s great to see you grow like this. Keep writing and sharing valuable content like you always did.
Hello to all ! i must say that yours blogs are really amazing you blog differently from other you have your way to share the things . in simple words great job . thank you for the information.
This is Drid, an outreach assistant. I wanted to find out who the best person is to speak with to contribute an article on your website?
I am looking to write an article that you can post on your blog. The article will be well-researched based on the large pool travel experts that our company has access to. In exchange, I was hoping that you could credit our online travel media site for providing the article to you. Please let me know if you would be interested?
Amazing blogs with perfect clicks
I do not even understand how I ended up right here, however I assumed this submit used to be good.
I don’t know who you are however definitely you are going to a well-known blogger
