Hi, Since I am a science graduate from one of the most reputed colleges in India, I had other career options. But I am a guide by choice with 10 years experience in this field ( old enough to explain the ancient monuments ,but young enough to climb all the mountains involved !!!).
My favorite subjects are Buddhism, Indian Philosophy and Ancient India ( Indus Valley civilization ) and i have conducted numerous theme based tours to Mumbai , Pune, Gujrath and central India.
This state of Maharashtra has hundreds of buddhist caves at various places dating from 2nd century B.C.E. To 13th century C.E. I call this tour as ' Buddhism after Buddha'
The place where I am based, is home of the two earliest world heritage monuments in India, dated between 2nd century B.C. To 11th century A.D. The level of sophistication in these places is unparalleled in whole world at that time. I love to share my wonderment of the intricacy , architecture, philosophy, aesthetics and mythology underlying these places.
Similar to Aurangabad , city of Mumbai ( erstwhile Bombay) is also home for two world heritage monuments namely Victory terminus railway station ( now CST) part of the gargantuan transport system transporting six million people every day and Elephanta caves. I had been residing in Mumbai for more than nine years. Hence am familiar to the great city and enjoy explaining the stages of financial, sociological and architectural development of the great city,
I like meeting people and exchanging ideas. Some of the guests I have shown around have put their opinion about my guiding on Internet, just Google my name
Amod Basole and you will find their comments.
