About Us

Team Route Purple

Parvez Imam

A medical doctor who took to Filmmaking, Music, and Writing beside being a Traveler, trekker, skier, scuba diver etc. etc.

Parvez studied to be a doctor. After completing his medical school he chose to work in Psychiatry before stepping out into media and many other things.   Route Purple was borne in 2005 out of his passion for traveling and being in nature whenever he would find time from making films. This is also his way of staying connected with nature and the basics of life. That is where the tagline 'We do a 2 hrs trek in 4 hrs' came about, keeping it clear that we would rather be with nature than 'run' against it and time.

An avid traveler, he also designs and conducts a variety of creative workshops. Parvez has also backpacked, roughed it out and traveled extensively. His experiences of travel, psychiatry, arts, filmmaking and life come together at Route Purple and are now also being expressd through The Un-Skool.
