About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel around in search of inspirational stories of the world.

ABOUT ME

I am a traveller with no destination.

#TEDx Speaker | An artist who works on #PayItForward #GiftEconomy | Does Penniless journeys of FiaziSafar.org around the world to experience tolerance level & generosity.

Here to meet interesting people.

Just finished Hitchhiking Journey from Singapore to India started on 15th April 2015, to experience tolerance level & generosity.

In August 2014 did 1000 miles penniless hitchhiking journey from Mumbai to Delhi (India)

The idea is to see how do we feel when some says no to help us. Does it hurt our ego, do we feel insulated, do we feel insecure, do we get angry, what's our tolerance level. And also to see how world reacts to a strangers when he/she got no money. How much leap of faith do we put in strangers in today's time.

In 2012, I did India to Vietnam road trip to document unsung heroes and since then I have not stopped travelling :)

Currently my base in Mumbai but I travel all over. I moved to Mumbai in December 2009. Before moving to Mumbai, I used to live in Ahmedabad for 7 years and I am raised in Rajasthan.

I work on a philosophy of Pay from your heart, Pay it forward”, which means your assignment charges are already paid by someone else in the past and in order to continue this cycle of art and giving, a request you to pay what your hearts says. I am working with this philosophy since April 2012 and very much spiritually happy.

WHY:

Everyone loves pictures and pictures makes us happy. But can we compare happiness? No, right! Art should have free flow and reach each one of us without any monetary hurdles.

PHILOSOPHY

The world is not bad, we just think it is. #Think #Positive

The more you care about the world, the more you respect the world.

Respect comes free, but still it's priceless.

Make yourself so humble that even an insect can't ignore your smile. :)

If you do not trust the world, how can you expect the world to trust you.

Connect. Learn. Teach. Inspire.
