|| 2 months of travel || .

My @googlemaps pictures, just this morning told me about my 2 months of journey of (unknowingly) going around India  and the picture they chose from my gallery for the same couldn't be any better. .
.
.
Starting from the city of Taj Mahal to the capital of the country, followed by the soul cleansing trip to the Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh, @google still didn't choose any of those pictures.
.
.
.
Coming back to Delhi followed by arriving to the city of nawabs (Lucknow) only to reach the southern part of country, place which saw me growing over the 4 years, Chennai. It was then, sitting in my flight flying over the beach i loved having a beer at in college days, that I was wondering if I've really been travelling a lot. I decided to click this picture. .
.
With a short halt in Chennai, now headed to Bangalore and again flying to and fro Delhi to see most beautiful of humans with the next 5 weeks followed by spending time in Bangalore. .
.
.
All of this is in less than two months' time, can I really associate myself with a single city in this country? .

It's taking me a little longer than others to figure out what do I (or what would I want to) make out of my career. Sometimes taking menial projects in my daily routine and other times landing up in prestigious internships; but the grass in certainly not green on this side, I promise. .
.
.
But the glory of a successful life(for me) doesn't lie in security, doesn't lie in comfort. There are days when I want to take a break from life for a really long time and work as a helping hand in a cafe/NGO after my MBA but then there are days when I don't want to stop working 9-5 and be the corporate slave as they say. .
.
.
I'm busy making rash and bold choices because the beauty of success doesn't lie in the destination but in the journey, or does it? I don't know. .

| who is home | •

Take me to a home where somebody else tries for me. Take me to a home where I wouldn't be scared of any of your wrongs.• Take me to a home where my heart can do the talking without sinking in. Take me to a home where I can see most ruined parts of me without a trace of shame. •

Take me to a home where, for once, my burdened dreams wouldn't mean anything to me. Take me to a home where I can hear the loudest laughs. •

Take me a to a home where I can feel every moment and the next moment, can never feel again. •

The pain of separation from places is just as much importantly felt as the pain of separation from people. •

Though of course no matter how hard my Google timeline tries for me to have a look at my memories, there remains no measure of the emotions left behind in all the places. •

Home could be more than just one city and there will be so many things to learn in every experience.• #theotherhippy #bangalore #bangalorediaries #sunsetporn #sunsets #sunset_ig #sunset_madness #sunset_hub #sunset_vision #sunset_pics #sunsetsky #sunset_hunter #sunset_captures #sunset_lovers #sunset_lovee #sunsetcolors #vsco_hub #vsco_india #vscocam #vsco #instasun #instasunsets #instadaily #sunsetsniper #unlimitedsunset #sky_sea_sunset #saurabhsabikhi #tripotocommunity

The owner of the homestay I chose as the accommodation for two nights had served the Indian Air Force for quite a time, part of which had come with his contributions to the UN peace keeping missions.
.

After he took voluntary retirement from the armed force, he decided to move to the Himalayas for rather simplistic and quiet living.
.
.
 But as they say, some things run in the genes.  He took his daughter for the republic day parade all the way to Delhi, from where she got this Indian flag. The flag stands gallantly in the mountains and the 13 years old girl, aspires to serve the Indian Armed forces some day.

When did we change, 
From throwing paper planes, 
And driving wooden trains, 
To this. 
And when did we grow,
From angels in the snow,
Lots of things we didn't know,
To this.

Can you put your finger on the day,
When we never again did play, 
Our childhood wasted away,
To this.

And when did we get taller,
Our dreams get smaller, 
So now the only thing left in life,
Is this.
~E.H.

I have spent a fair share of time in a few different cities right from early age. Having looked in the social structure of all these big and small towns of the country, never did I predict that this would shape my school of thought slowly and gradually. Never knew that I could have tales to tell.. •

There is so much of me that I'm leaving in all these big and small cities. There's so much of me I'm leaving in understanding all these people. There's so much of me in all the strained and celebrated relationships. But yet one of the many things that I'm still to learn is to find my way back to my (shinier from distance) home. •

PS : The sunsets in the southern part of India are really gorgeous. . •

11 things that last five years of being away from home taught me :

1. People's opinion of you doesn't matter. They don't matter at all. A few do but when was the last time the rest of them fuckers didn't have fair share of fun out of your shortcomings and failures? Don't carry the burden of their existence in your life•

2. ‎Its okay to fail if the next step you take is to come out strong of the failure and achieve more with focus •

3. ‎Smile whole day and let your brain be confused about the way it feels. Fool it to be happy. Laugh more than often •

4. ‎Your parents' connections are not your connections and do absolutely nothing to please any of those connections at the cost of your inconvenience•

5. ‎Never stop speaking the truth. Fetches you lesser people but you will not be backstabbed by them•

6. ‎Help more people with whatever little you've got/achieved. You'll feel better by helping a life. Lift somebody else up in order to be at the top yourself. Each one, lift one•

7. ‎Spend more time with yourself. Introspect your choices and don't let down any of your decisions•

8. ‎Start penning down your feelings. The way you feel about every little thing in your life. Start clicking pictures of things you like. Don't stop for a validation from this society or it's norms •

9. ‎Academics is not the end of the world and you are much more than a grade sheet or college legacy •

10. Life is fucking beautiful. Don't settle for their criticism of you. Make necessary changes but don't believe all of them•

11. Love with all your might Make your existence matter•

And there will always be another mountain to scale, another trip to make, another escape to celebrate, another reason to not lose the faith. And none of it comes without a learning experience. 💙 .

And here I am, taking short and long trips more regularly than ever before. Saving money from my regular weekend parties to put them in all these tickets. •

I've started finding peace in being lost, happiness in taking all reckless decisions. I've started to feel more child-like than ever before. I've let myself loose to love harder, and live more fully. •

I've started to refuse to keep going with the regular concepts of a stable and settled life. I am giving up on the idea of not being a failure in anytime of life. •

I've started to fail faster, cry more often, laugh a little louder, fall a little harder but get myself together quicker than ever before. •

Because 20s will be the time of my life. It's my decade to try and test every happiness possible. It's my decade to love a lot, travel a bit but never touch the ground. It's my decade to laugh the loudest. It's my decade to be stubborn, unholy, wild, corrupt and a misfit. •

I'm no traveler, no mountain child. I just have a lot of questions. I went to seek a lot of answers but I returned back with none of the answers. I only came back with the courage to face the questions more gallantly and the realization that, once in a while, it's okay, to have a lot of questions and be okay with them.

And so, they say, you never return as the same person after a trip from the Himalayas. •

Totally disappointed by my way of living life in the past one year tanking big time in academics, allowing people to slip away from my life and being helpless about it, I decided to take this trip. •

Not informing about it at my home to my parents, constantly lying about it to them, spending all of my little savings, and falling short at it, in the end, all of the troubles that led to this make sense to me. It has a lot to do with the peace in the mountains, the sound of the river or the calmness in the breeze, and more than that, it has a great deal to do with the stories in it. •

I'm just glad that all the amazing memories and the glorious peace was worth the wait in the end.
