One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I trekked with my Brother and Cousin in Kodaikanal, popular hill station in South India . We took random trail routes. It was exciting and we had no GPS. It was an adrenaline pump for 6 hours. We stood on the edge of rocks where one slip would made us reach god.

I was part of a Trip called Jagriti Yatra where we had to Live on the train. An annual train trip around India for young people interested in entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship to bring innovative, proactive change to India. This trip is the longest train trip in the world- 8000 km covered in 15 days, while living on the train with 450 fellow entrepreneurs!

Another Awesome thing was we were in Velankani, the church town on the Bay of Bengal in Tamil Nadu, India on a Tsunami warning day. It was a period of heavy storm where many people died in the surrounding areas. Still we walked across the shore, what was surprising was many devotees who came to visit the church were all on the sea!! Power of Nature and God!!

Teach, Learn, Share

Learning is one thing I always believe in and do day in/day out. Thats why I read numerous articles online and books to update myself.

Couchsurfing is awesome because we learn about that city from a local. What more than learning from a local than reading a book or online reviews.
