About the Author

Ankur Mutreja is a writer by choice and an advocate by profession, which choice he exercises best while writing on travel. Though he has been writing on travel in piecemeal manner, "Kerala Hugged" is his first travelogue. He has also been writing on other varied topics for last more than a decade through his blogs, which are accessible from his website. In 2015, he converted his blogs into a book entitled "Writings @ Ankur Mutreja" and derived three other titles from it: "Sparks: Satire and Reviews", "Flare: Opinions (Law, Human Rights and Politics)", and "Light: Philosophy". He has also published a short book of poems entitled "Nine Poems" in the same year. His main areas of interest in the writing arena are Travel, Reviews, Satire, Poems, Opinions and Philosophy. Of course, other than these, he does lots of legal writing too. Other than writing and travel, Ankur likes books, music, news, internet, and jogging, and recently he has rekindled his love for biking. Ankur doesn't open up easily, but on peeling a few difficult layers, he may turn out to be a sweet, soft pulp -- it depends entirely on you; he just reflects.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Kerala Hugged: Munnar/Kochi/Alleppey/Varkala by Ankur Mutreja is a travelogue that takes readers on an interesting trip to Kochi, Alleppey, Munnar, and Varkala in Kerala along with the author, and lets them discover the natural beauty of this place which lies at the southernmost tip of India. The book captures the sights and sounds of each location, the places of interest there, and the author's memories as a tourist that made the trip memorable. The author’s description of the places and his memories will make any reader want to pack their bags, take a trip to Kerala, and experience the abundance of natural beauty that has given it the title ‘God’s Own Country.’ The author speaks about the places in detail and the color pictures shared in the book make his descriptions vivid and real, and help readers connect well with the places and his words. Be it the hills of Munnar, the houseboat and backwater experience at Alleppey, the beaches of Varkala, or the crowded lanes of Fort Kochi, and the other tourist attractions, the author speaks about the diversity of the place extensively. For all those planning a trip to Kerala, this book is perfect as it will help them in deciding what to see, which places to visit, and what to expect while traveling in Kerala. I enjoyed the book immensely as it is honest and the author’s writing style is simple and neat, making it easy for readers to understand. On the whole the book is an excellent travelogue and it brings alive the beauty of the places effectively.
