About Me

I am Kalpana Sunder, a  freelance travel writer and photographer based in Chennai, India where I live with my entrepreneur- husband, and two children. A restless spirit who believes that life is too short to do just one thing, I have re-invented myself several times over. I have taught Japanese to techies and creative English to young learners. In my search for a good travel tale, I have snorkelled on the Barrier Reef; zip lined through rainforests, snowmobiled in Lapland, and floated on the Dead Sea. I love the colour purple, junk jewellery and cherubic kids, read anything I lay my hands on, and slow down with yoga. I love learning languages and interacting with people of different nationalities.  I firmly believe in the power of a hug and in always eating dessert. Travel and writing are integral parts of my DNA. My ever growing travel wish- list is a topic of discussion with my family and friends!

Hi Kalpana,
I am a metallurgist who stumbled upon plasma technology 42 years ago and have made a career interwoven between the two disparate subjects, topping it up with Advanced Surface Engg. Am married to a lady who grew up in Shillong, so am quite fascinated by your tales of travel. One of the subjects I teach design students is biomimetics or bio-inspiration, and I have been using some of your excellent phtographs to make them think. Many thanks for this excellent blog. I will keep coming back.
Warm regards,

Thanks Max Babi! I am really honoured that you are using my blog to teach! Please note that my blog has migrated to a new site. Do use google connect to follow!http://www.kalpanasunder.com/blog
