Meet Isha Popat began traveling four years back, as her job needed her to do so. And the next she knew was that she looked forward to it. Head of a young and beautiful team of training professionals, traveling now means an opportunity to feel a new destination and also freedom to be raw and earthy.
A TEDx speaker, life has given her opportunities to talk and express her views before large public.
Traveling keeps her going by getting a chance to converse with her own self and believe in miracles, trust the unknown. She loves to feel the vibe that each place uniquely gives her. Be it a waterfall at Pagsanjan, or a dam in Vindhyachal, a red moon visible from Idar mountain or the unique design an ocean’s wave leaves on sand each time it hits the shore, a vaav in Palitana or great caves created by Buddhist monks at Elephanta and Kanheri.
Traveling is about feeling the amazement of creation around us!
Meet Bhumika Bhavsar #Speaker #SFTMAhmedaad
A Graphic Designer and Documentary photographer by profession, On her very first trip abroad she learned that solo travel was for her.
Bhumika Bhavsar’s photography is best defined by her enduring passion to see the world through the lens combined with her love for art and her desire to capture the finer details of ordinary moments to transform them into long lasting memories through her pictures. A photographer by passion and a graphic designer by profession, Bhumika is a firm follower of her creative instinct in all spheres of life and this instinct continues to be her biggest inspiration. Her academic qualifications include a post-graduate degree in visualization from M. S. University, Baroda, Gujarat, apart from an eye for the finer details. An art enthusiast based out of Ahmedabad, Bhumika is fast making her mark in the world of design, her innate vision of a photographer making her a multi-faceted artist. “Photography is like the heart of my art psyche. I perceive photography as a medium to explore the roots of religion and spirituality” she says. Her trip to Kailash Mansarovar was one of her most spiritually enhancing trips. Seeing the many moods of devotion and the perseverance with which people pursue religion inspired her to capture the moments of divinity through her lens. In her previous assignment where she worked as a photographer for the “Gujarat Yatra Dham”, she got an opportunity to capture some of the finest architectural monuments in the State that define the epitome of spirituality and are a true resemblance of the rich cultural heritage of the people. In her passion to capture this facet of spirituality, She has had the opportunity to embark on an ever continuing journey of self-discovery bringing out her true persona” says Bhumika.
Just as the world is dynamically evolving so is the spiritual intent of the people. through her trips to the farthest corners of the country in her pursuit to capture the multiple facets of spirituality, Bhumika has visited several festivals and Melas, some of which are not known to many of us. Her achievement includes a rare impression of the majestic Kailash Mansarovar and its spiritual grandness, presented as a slideshow for the very first time in Gujarat at Ahmadabad.

Meet Leepi Agrawal #Speaker #SFTMAhmedabad
Born and raised in Ahmedabad, Certified RPA expert by profession and a blogger by Passion.
An author by heart, whose poem made a place in Limca Book of world Records, and a TED speaker
A neophyte into the world of traveling but makes her best into whatever she is.
She was recently a part of travelers community which offered her a mission called Mighty Pen where she traveled 5 different places for 5 different days
She has covered Pune, Lavasa, Mahabaleshwar, Panchgini, Mumbai, Jaipur, Udaipur, Jaisalmer , Kerala, Mysore, Hyderabad, Agra, Mathura including one international trip to Thailand and still counting more.
She doesn’t believe in power of lens and she is pretty okay to carry the lost trend of pen and paper and make her trips as beautiful as it is by sketching for what she has seen or by writing about it, this is her way of freezing the moment.
