Abhijeet and Navita Deshpande

Abhijeet Deshpande is an accidental nomad. His stints in corporate and diplomatic organizations have offered him opportunities to immerse himself in various cultures.

Over the past 20 years, the frequency and length of his travel have steadily risen. To keep up, his choices have been changing too—from planned holidays to spontaneous ones, from fixed schedules to flexible ones, and from working full-time assignments to freelancing.

He is married to Navita, an equally zealous traveller. Together, they continue to slow-travel the world and curate long reads on Scale Indigo.

…brisk and colorful, peppered with personal anecdotes…
