Leaving his lucrative job in an MNC, establishing himself as a renowned travel blogger, and starting his own digital marketing agency, Pranav Das chose to decide his own path and fulfill his dreams rather than becoming a corporate slave. He took the unbeaten path that most of us would hesitate. The journey hasn’t been easy yet it was all worth it.
Past Life- What Was It Like Before The Travel Bug Hit?
Pranav Das is a small-town boy, born and brought up in Cuttack, Odisha by traditional Indian parents. He completed his bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. Soon after graduating, he got a high-paying job in a reputed MNC in Kolkata.
Like any other ordinary fellow, he took the job and grilled in it for 3 years before he realized this wasn’t the kind of lifestyle he wanted and started exploring other options. He pursued MBA but soon dropped it because he found his passion- Travelling!
At this point, any typical Indian parent would find it outrageous to find their young 25 something son, a future breadwinner of the family take a major life-changing step like this. Fortunately, Pranav got the background support and nothing was stopping him.
