I am a storyteller. I search them on the road and compile them on the web. Whenever I get free time in this cruel world of 9 to 5, I step out from my cocoon, to search my soul, to explore a new place, to tell a new story.
I neither have a big desire to explore each and every corner in this world, nor have a bucket list. I just do whatever my heart says. It can be a road-tripping, trekking, river-chasing, photography, motorcycle riding, snorkelling, now scuba diving etc. Sometimes, I just sit and stare on the map. And for all this, I don’t wait for the others. Its written in The Dhammapada,
Travel only with thy equals or thy betters; if there are none, travel alone.
Its all about following my heart. I just have a single wish, “At the dusk of my life, when these eyes started to close, there should be the peace in my heart, that I lived this life with full craziness, spent few moments at some of the most beautiful destinations, and inspired some more people to step out from their comfort zone to explore this beautiful planet”.
Rahul Sankrityayan became my role model, when I read,
कमर बाँध लो भावी घुमक्कड़ों ! संसार तुम्हारे स्वागत के लिए बेकरार है|
(Buckle Up Future Backpackers ! The World is longing to welcome you)
and, the words of Mark Twain are my source of inspiration,
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
To all of you, Don’t wait, Find out your inspiration and Celebrate Life on The Road.
