2015 was a year of unbecoming in order to become that someone I always intended to! I recently wrote an article on “Change is the only constant, then what is change?” which will be published soon on my personal blog “Live Love Believe”. What inspired me to write that post and to start my post mentioning about it, is that 2015 was a year of … Continue reading 2015 in a Review!
It had been more than 12 hours from the time we commenced our train journey for Jalandhar from Mumbai. Megha and I occupied the side berths, while there was a couple sitting in the compartment adjacent to us. Ratlam had passed an hour and half back; we already had had our dinner, and I was now waiting for the night to gradually make me fall … Continue reading The Train Stories – He is drunk!
In the midst of all who are busy running the race of survival, there are few souls that take up that leap of faith and embark on the journey unknown, to fetch the meaning called “life”. Life has happened to me now, at 27, and now on it happens to me every day, I ensure that. I was one of those few souls who, as … Continue reading It’s all one… it’s all in believing!
Sitting clueless at Nagpur station waiting for the train to arrive, I was feeling edgy. I come to this station every week, that too twice, but today it seemed very unfamiliar. My train to Delhi was running late by 40 mins, and I was suspiciously looking around. Why, I wondered. I have always loved people and moreover have felt at peace with strangers too. At … Continue reading And then I finally fell in love with Delhi!
My last travel to Mumbai wasn’t in Nagpur-Mumbai Duronto but Sevagram Express. Since the train did have a halt at Kalyan, i decided to visit my cousin’s place to freshen up. It was a good choice indeed, as we spent two hours talking about life and childhood days. I commenced my journey again, this time in a local train to Dadar, for assisting at Landmark. A … Continue reading The Train Stories – Spread goodness to keep it alive!
An hour had passed since I had my last conversation with the fellow passenger about, as usual, travelling. We were 7 people all men, except me. Finding it uncomfortable to be the talkative one, I had engulfed myself into the book “My Experiments with Truth” by Mahatma Gandhi, completely amazed at his authentic sharing about his beliefs, experiences and indeed mistakes. Every now and then I … Continue reading The Train Stories – Her Innocence!
While my mind was amazed at the coincidence of the dates, I was both excited and anxious of what life had to offer me now. Exactly 7 years back, on 30th June 2008, I had left Nagpur to pursue my Masters in Management from Mumbai, and now I had boarded the train back home. With no job, but a purpose in life, I had commenced this uncertain, … Continue reading The Train Stories – When fellow travellers meet!
I was sitting with a few friends near Gateway of India that Sunday evening. We were waiting for one of the friends to complete his important phone call, while we others were simply chit chatting. As usual, after some time my attention drifted from the conversations to the people around. While I started guessing the caste/ religion of the families based on their behaviour, I … Continue reading A spontaneous trip to Elephanta Caves
Day 3 at Hampi We had planned to explore the ruins of the Vijaynagar Empire today and were already firm about hiring a cycle for the same. Considering the advice of our homestay owner, I booked two cycles before 8 am (Alternatively, you can also book an auto or take your car to explore these ruins, but the best experience is indeed cycling). We started … Continue reading Exploring Hampi, the city of ruins – Part 2
When Megha and I reached Hampi, we felt a little confused. A crowd of people surrounded us as soon as we got down of the local bus plying between Hospet and Hampi, shouting madam Guest house, madam Auto, madam Hampi tour guide. They did not let us talk, nor move. Irritated we tried walking ahead ignoring them, while they followed us. Finally I lost my … Continue reading Exploring Hampi, the city of ruins – Part 1
