Can you introduce yourself?
Hi, I am Kshitijj Sachdeva. I am a crazy lost soul in this artistically complex universe.
Can you tell us when and why you launched the Indian route?
Well, me and my two friends , Amol Singhh and Mukul Wadhwa were having a hard time pursuing something that we never wanted to. Some thought condescending our own soul that who we actually are. This search made us visit our own solitudes and travel. And we realised how traveling can unleash the power of human potential. And we launched The Indian Route on December 6th, 2015. I consider that date really lucky.
