Hi! I am Niharika (The Iffy Explorer), a believer of following passions mercilessly.
After graduating as an Architect, I decided to take up travelling full time. From research projects to just being a digital nomad, curiosity keeps me going.
Currently, I create written and visual content on my blog, youtube channel and Instagram.
My soul loves to indulge with experiences which involve exploring the untrodden, living like a local and knowing the place and its people best by exploring their habitats.

Answering someone back when you feel the need to stand up against injustice or unnecessary moral-policing relatives and neighbours, fighting for what's rightfully yours, whether a deserved promotion or anything that you worked your ass off for; might need you to deploy an inner force. Sometimes when you let things go easily that did wrong to you, you are promoting the cycle of the oppressor raised by society standards. I was too small to fight sexual harrasement, may be I was extremely afraid as well. But my fear, over the years, picked up a fire, a flammable urge to fight back no matter what and let nothing shatter my self-respect. I wonder, how this works? Not everyone's fear tranforms positively. They have the power to raise a confident human into a completely distraught one. One sudden realisation and you are standing on the crossroads of your thoughts. How the hell you can let this happen to you? Speaking up, standing up, fighting it back; takes courage. My courage, however finite it may be, surfaced because of all the evils I faced. The kind of news that we get to hear and many things that stay hidden, should keep the power to glorify the fighter because not everytime all evils come without causalities, it's the trauma that lands up as a by-product. . . . #fightback #metoo #womenempowerment #womentravel #speakup #femaletravelbloggers #womenwhotravel #womenwhoexplore #boislockerroom #theiffyexplorer #travelbloggerIndia #travelforpeace #Traveltolearn #traveltotransform
Since my academic days, I have been involving myself in various research projects which made me a travel enthusiast and the exploration bug bit me hard, then onwards.
I look at the world through the mesh of self-expression where I play the role of an artistically inclined architect who writes, does poetry and travels.
