Mauktik Kulkarni; Engineer, Neuroscientist and Traveller. In 2008, to breakout from the monotony of graduate school in then States, he flew out to South America, picked up a motorcycle, and explored the back-roads of Peru, Chile, Argentina for six weeks. Inspired by “The Motorcycle Diaries”, but with virtually no knowledge of Spanish, he managed to clock 8000 clicks; discovering a magical new world by letting himself go with the flow of new culture and new people. Touched by the kindness of Latin Americans, he wrote his memoir A Ghost of Che: A motorcycle ride through Space, Time, Life and Love which received rave reviews from readers. In 2013 he backpacked round the world visiting 36 countries on all continents following the itchy feet again. He lives in India now.
