About Me

People know me as-Advaitya Ghumakkar(अद्वैत्य घुमक्कड़)
● Himalaya
● Chai(Tea)
● Old Songs
will always be my first LOVE !!!

◆ Current Mission:-
I don't want my home surrounded by walls, so that
all the cultures of all countries can blow freely though.

◆ Philosophy:-
● कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन ।
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भुर्मा ते संगोऽस्त्वकर्मणि ॥
(Karmanye Vadhikaraste, Ma phaleshou kada chana,
Ma Karma Phala Hetur Bhurmatey Sangostva Akarmani)
भावार्थ : तेरा कर्म करने में ही अधिकार है, उसके फलों में कभी नहीं। इसलिए तू कर्मों के फल हेतु मत हो तथा तेरी कर्म न करने में भी आसक्ति न हो।
You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty.
- Bhagavad Gita, Chapter II, Verse 47
● Every single person in your life 
was once a stranger to you.'
So I'm convinced that-
You also should talk to the strangers,I'll tell you why-
1)- A stranger give you a whole new perspective.
2)- Every stranger comes with an opportunity of learning something new.
3)- Every stranger comes with a story that you've never heard before.
Now I think you're also convinced after reading this ;)
●Treat others as you would like to be treated.
