Dheeraj

A voracious reader, Dheeraj heads the kamalan team and embodies the company’s vision. A business graduate from the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad and ESSEC Paris, his idea of travel as an intimate and intellectual experience drives him to translate that into an essential kamalan experience for each of our clients. A staunch believer that all truths in life lie within the grasp of travel, literature and art, he loves long walks, mathematics, dosas and poetry.
