Yesterday someone in the live session on Instagram, asked me, “please tell us about your journey”And it made me think, what makes them think that I might have an interesting story on my journey.

Honestly, I have had a very simple, straight-forward and an untangled life all these years.
My decision to not lead a regular, normal and simple life anymore was inspired by the books and movies I fell in love with while I was still enjoying my college life. That time, travel for living and living to travel was nowhere in the scene.
We are never told about the road less taken, we are always shown the straight paths. By the end of college, I realised, would it make much of a difference to me if I die in a house a few sq. feet smaller, if I don’t own my own bike and utilise public transport all my life if materialistic possessions are something that I want to be free from?
The answer didn’t come because I was yet to take the road life, I am still to experience it fully, I am still to find answer and stories to my journey and I am still to carve out my own path.
Hence, to tell about my journey is something that I would think of telling after a few years of experiencing something which I never thought I would while all I was being taught was of conventional ways of living. This is a quest to find answers to questions I have, a ride.
