That pretty hut in the sunflower field or enchanting waterfall that roars only to quiet your mind, if you are catching a sight of all this in your mind,then yes, you are definitely longing to be out there. Don’t stop yourself from travelling. Trust me, it’s always good to get out of the rut and do what you want to do. Wanna feed your wanderlust more? Here’s to all!
In a candid conversation with us at Adotrip, Anuritta spilled her heart out. From her passion for off-road cycling to spending days amid nature, she revealed many untold stories from her travel experiences from India. Check out!
: What is travelling for you?
Travelling for me is a liberating and life altering experience. I turned into a traveller just about 5 years ago and trust me, life has changed ever since. I am not a person who worries about work assignments anymore. Living in Mumbai tunes you to the cut throat work culture. Even if you are catching up with your friends, you are discussing work. Therefore, it's important to unwind yourself, to give yourself that much-needed break where you can connect with your inner self and serenity of nature.
Apart from being a travel junkie, I love to cycle on rugged roads. I am the first girl to cross the Atal Tunnel on a bicycle. My friend and I are constantly planning off-road cycling expeditions. I cycled from Manali to Rohtang Pass which was a 75km trek. Off-road cycling at different places keeps my wanderlust charged and gives me a sense of achievement.
Travelling gives me the reason to step back, unplug and appreciate the beauty of nature!
: Any childhood travel memory that gives you nostalgia?
I have spent my childhood in a boarding school. So it was always nice to be with parents during vacation. Short family trips make me nostalgic even today. During those days, we didn’t have too much digitalization. We used to click pictures and place them nicely in the albums. It's always a treat revisiting these albums. Those pictures of Darjeeling, Bodhgaya takes me down the memory lane. Even if I travel so much now, there’s something about those family vacations that makes me nostalgic even today.
: You hail from Patna, Bihar. What is your version of the place?
Bihar is seen in a different light, however, I know Bihar as a land of knowledge, culture and rich past. I did my 11th and 12th grade from Patna and I have been around the entire city on my scooty. I never faced any issue as a young girl and the city always felt safe. Also, I belong to a family of writers, poets and archaeologists. My uncle was the main archaeologist for Bodhgaya site and my grandfather has translated the mythological scripture of Mahabharata. It was enriching to grow among passionate people. I grew up in a closely knitted family where 30 people used to stay together under one roof. It can happen only in places like Bihar where joint family ethos are still practised. Despite urbanization, the essence of Bihar remains intact.
Home to fascinating places like Bodhgaya, Nalanda, Rajgir, Patna etc; Bihar is an affluent state which roots back to the breaking dawn of civilizations in India.
: Which part of the country you think is worth exploring? Why?
Northeast India and Rajasthan. Both these places have a different charm. Meghalaya is a treasure trove of natural beauty while Jaipur is every bit regal, I am in awe with Indian diversity. Every place in both the areas have unique customs and deep cultural significance. I am longing to take a road trip sometime soon. I had already a plan of driving down in January but I wasn’t keeping well so had to call off my plan. However, it’s on my bucket list. I want to shoot the entire journey and explore these spellbinding places at my own pace.
: Any unique festival in India that you have attended or is on your bucket list?
Tulip Festival in Srinagar, Kashmir is breathtaking. Also , Durga Puja in Kolkata has another level of energy. It’s spiritually high and enriching. Then, I want to see the Paragliding Festival in Bir Billing. It has one of the best takeoff and landing sites making it to the list of top 10 paragliding spots in the world.
India is a land of myriad festivals and I want to see them all!
: You are also a fashion icon. What are your travel staples?
I love to be in my comfortable outfits when I am travelling. Travel is all about getting out there in the world and living every place like natives do. I really don’t put myself in the frame of prying eyes. I keep my look sporty and simple. I carry track pants, shorts, ganjees, jackets, caps, sport shoes, trekking shoes and scarves. And sunglasses are a must!
: Which actor would you like to travel with?
Manav Kaul. He travels a lot and to the remotest of places.
: If you have to go on a solo trip in India, where would you go?
Himachal Pradesh. Scenic and has amazing cycling trails.
: If you have to go on a vacation with your parents. Where would you go?
Kanyakumari. I would want my parents to catch a sight of sunset and sunrise at the same beach.
: Your favourite piece of Indian handicraft?
Jute Bags. I find the weaving patterns quite intriguing.
: Your favourite beach destination?
: Your favourite hill destination?
Manali. It's ethereal.
: Your favourite dish from the Indian menu?
Sattu ka Paratha and Bharta anyday. Plain rice, dal and aloo ka bhajiya. I love typical Bihari cuisines.
