MEET SUNITHA DUGAR – A SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR
Founder of Roam Baby Roam Sunitha Dugar is A Serial Entrepreneur, A MAVERICK, A PATH BREAKER. SHE BELIEVES that …if you put your heart and mind to something, willing to work hard and are persistent, there is nothing that you cannot achieve.
Photography, trekking, self-driven road trips, reading, cooking, interesting conversations.
One thing she always carries:
As a Person:
Always brimming with enthusiasm, ever ready to sit behind the wheel and drive anywhere in the world – Her laughter is contagious and rubs off just when you need it most. In times of need, Sunitha is the most dependable person around, you can run to her for anything.
As your trip leader:
Be prepared to tune in for some of the funniest stories of adventure experiences, shake your leg to your childhood favourite music at midnight, go star gazing on a un trodden path, that is, if you still have energy left after an adventurous day solving clues. There is never a dull moment as her avid glance through her camera lenses captures it all.
After marriage, Sunitha successfully started her own business in 2003 called Kalakruti, a store specialising in designer wedding wear collection for women. Way back in 2003 Marwari women running a business was rare and unheard of. The store was an instant success and kept Sunitha busy for the next 13 years.
Meanwhile, she was introduced to the world of adventure when she joined the Chennai trekking club and realised that experimenting and physically challenging herself – is her soul’s calling. She turned into an avid traveller, trekking across many destinations around Southern parts of India. Moreover, Sunitha developed a deep interest in photography and started a freelance photography company under the brand name of ‘Candid Diaries’. (Site link appears here)
It was sometime in 2015 that she began her passion for self-driven road trips. In August 2015 Sunitha and two of her besties ventured on a cross country road trip from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, the famous K2K drive. Life has never the been the same for her. She has come a long way from being an entrepreneur to doing all women self-driven cross country trips. SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH TRAVELLING and started women self-driven company called ‘The Travelling Divas’. (site link here)
Wearing too many hats with too little time to juggle between her passion for travelling, business and family made Sunitha take the toughest call of her life. She shut down her 13-year successful running business Kalakruti.
This started with Sunitha flying like a free bird, indulging in innumerable self-driven road trips in India. The highlight being the drive to Leh and Ladakh in May 2016 (link here). Later in September 2016, Sunitha along with her 10-year daughter and three besties went on a self-drive road trip to Iceland for 15 days. (link here)The trip made them explore the length and breadth of beautiful Iceland a mesmerising country. The trip was special in a Unique Way – as Sunitha always wished to do a mother daughter trip together.
After fulfilling another dream and returning home to India and while watching a popular TV show, she got a new idea ….Yes, the idea of forming a travel company in the format of the famous game show THE AMAZING RACE. This is how ROAMBABYROAM was born.
