The Gypsy Chiring Travel Blog

The Gypsy Chiring Travel Blog, Joydeep Phukan

Pronam, Namaskar & Kardom!

A travel Blogger based in Assam, India, Joydeep Phukan is the creator of “The Gypsy Chiring

The word “Gypsy” (“যাযাবৰ” in the Assamese language) means nomad. While Chiring is the term signifying my lineage of Ahom roots. The logo of The Gypsy Chiring starts with the letter and of the Assamese alphabets. Kardom refers to greetings in Karbi dialect of Assam. This travel blog is my way of representing my love for travel, culture and nature.

With an academic background in Anthropology, and a passion for culture and outdoor adventure, I started “The Gypsy Chiring” to share about the beautiful and diverse Northeast India with the world.

Being from the Northeastern region of India, I have learned that people from other regions are unaware of our cultures, fascinating landscapes and the diversity of Northeast India.

The term “Cultural Relativism” in Anthropology says that we should not view or judge a culture or a cultural attribute based on our own cultural practices. We must rather understand other cultures based on their cultural context, more so through a local’s perspective.

The Gypsy Chiring is my way to represent Northeast India ethically and authentically.

Do you have queries about your trip to Northeast India? Do you love adventure travel?

If Yes, The Gypsy Chiring travel blog is your source for tips and soothing stories on travel, adventure and culture of Northeast India and the world.

Apart from Northeast India, you will also find articles about other parts of India and from around the globe; regarding travel tips such as travel essentials, camping tips and blogging. Welcome to the plethora of thrilling experiences and soothing stories.

I intend to promote the less-explored and off-beat destinations of Northeast India. Expressing authentic moments with nature, places and culture is my passion.

It is also a platform for enthusiast writers and travel bloggers to get their work published, thereby developing together through collaborations.

Northeast India is pristine in regard to its ethnic diversity, nature-human relationship and art forms. The Gypsy Chiring is my platform to know, learn, understand and promote the essence of Northeast India through a local’s perspective.
