India Travelogue - Part I: Rajasthan & Gujarat

Since I was a kid, I remember India was always one of my top 3 destinations to visit. But it was all in my dreams and until very recently (let’s say after I felt I’m an independent grown up which would make it around 25 - lol) had I never thought I’d afford a trip to India IN THE QUALITY I EXPECTED! (by this I mean I wanted to be able to travel from city to city without worrying about money) - Guess what?!! It came true!

About me


A lot of people (mainly Iranians around the world) know me from the TV programs on Manoto TV Channel. About 4,5 years ago I started my career as a TV presenter and then became a producer as well. But Shirin is not only defined by Manoto. Before that, after I finished my studies in Industrial Design, I started to work as a self employed Goldsmith Artisan (making handmade jewellery). It was good. But then I decided to migrate to the UK and continue my education. After graduating, like everyone else I applied for tens of tens of jobs. Finally! I got employed in the most favoured Iranian television by the public. 
My passion is Dance. However, in my motherland, unfortunately after the revolution, dancing for women has become illegal. Therefor as many others, I never had the opportunity to choose dance as a serious activity, let alone learn it professionally. So what I did was to use this extreme passion of mine in the shows that I could make. I made two series of Shirin Dance Documentary, in which I travel to different parts of the world and learn about all sorts of dance. 
Anyway...here I am now! 
Trying to expand my horizon. Learn more, and do more.
