Hi, I am

Nishad Kinhikar,

an avid theatre enthusiast and a passionate traveller. I decided to create VeryFirstTale with a very simple aim. To inspire my fellow readers to explore the world around you by enjoying every bit of your life. Through my blog, I aim to not only share my personal travel stories & experiences but also to showcase the incredible marvels of our theatre industry today. My passion for theatre and travel is rooted in the unforgettable moments both can create. So, join me on my journey and see where it takes you.

About Me

An Introvert’s Tale in an Extrovert’s World.

Let me tell you, my life has been a bit like an introvert’s journey in an extrovert’s world. Back when I was just 20, I used to shy away from conversations and interactions. But one day, something clicked, and I decided to take a leap of faith during my university days by going on a Cultural Exchange trip to Europe.

That experience changed everything for me. I discovered the incredible power of human connection and cultural exchange. It was like opening a door to a whole new world of personal growth and unforgettable experiences, and connections that I would cherish for the rest of my life. From there, I couldn’t get enough. I embarked on more cultural exchanges to places like the Czech Republic, Poland, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Russia, Nepal, and more, exploring over 18 countries by the time I turned 22.

Fast forward to now—I’m 24, a proud Maharashtrian, Indian, and a passionate traveller. But there’s something else that lights up my soul: Marathi Theatre. Since childhood, I’ve always loved watching new Marathi plays, watching them with my family and falling in love with the art form. It got me thinking—how could I contribute to the growth of Marathi theatre? And that’s when the idea for VeryFirstTale was born.

After completing my Bachelor and MBA from NMIMS Navi Mumbai in the year 2022, at the age of 23, my beautiful travel experiences and the impact of the same on my life fueled my desire to share my memories, my learnings and my insights with you all, inspiring me to launch my own travel and entertainment blog – VeryFirstTale.

VeryFirstTale isn’t just a travel blog. It aims to capture the first hand and true essence of all my personal experiences be it travelling or watching a new Marathi Play, to create helpful and suggestive content as well as to provide valuable and honest tips & reviews to my readers about my enthusiasm for watching a new Marathi Play or my next travel adventure. That is why, VeryFirstTale is a combination of both a travel as well as an entertainment blog. 

And that is what VeryFirstTale is all about.

All this is to encourage my fellow readers to take up every available opportunity available to you and to step out of your comfort zone for creating your own ‘First Tales’.

Last but not the least, at the end of the day, all I want to do is to bring a smile to your face.

Therefore, if you find my travel-related blogs and and Marathi Play Review blogs interesting and insightful, I would love to hear your feedback and comments on the same. Additionally, if you feel like supporting me in my journey of discovering new tales, here are a few ways you can support my blog.

Curious to learn more about my adventures? Come say hi on my Instagram page @veryfirsttale.

Let’s create some unforgettable tales together!
