Today, he also writes for Lifehacker.
He loves travelling, particularly to places not frequented by tourists. He keeps running half-marathons across India and hopes to complete a full marathon one day. Pranay enjoys trekking in the Himalayas, where he's already completed a trek in which the summit was over 12,000 feet high.
