Disclaimer : whereas I had introduced it on my Instagram and even modified by bio to incorporate my designation and so on., I used to be not solely positive if I’d have the ability to address the tempo of the hospitality trade. Now, three and a half months later, I feel I did, certainly, cope.

I take care of the Visitor Experiences Program and the VIP Program on the lodge. As a part of my tasks, I take visitors round for the lodge’s Experiences and Explorations. One in all which is the Thar Path. Generally, relying on the visitors’ necessities, we tailor our experiences.
