Saurabh Rastogi
Founder/Marketing Head

A Delhite on paper but a Banarasi from birth & the heart, I am a marketing professional with a knack for creating visuals & stories. When not at Ghats, streets & my workdesk I can be found amid mountains and wilderness.

Nishant Mishra

An Anesthesiologist but a self-taught artist from Kashi(Varanasi), currently pursuing my career as both, as an artist and a doctor in Delhi. To write or paint about Kashi is a medium of worship for me.

Mamta Singh
Community Manager

A CA in making.
Intensely infatuated with Varanasi. I keep falling for the crowd, the congestion, the 'Bhaukaal' and everything about this city.
If it's about Varanasi, I am in!
And that is why I am here, at Varanasi Guru.
Apart from this, I am a huge devotee of Munshi Premchand.

Priyanshu Singh
Social Media Manager/Content Creator
A journalism student and a patient observer of the serenity. Grinning wild-child of the peaceful city Varanasi and its beauty. An adventurous spirit with camera in hand who not only loves to capture moments of wonder and serenity but also discovering some unsaid stories of the Kashi.
