Some time back, I used to have an online friend who would always Ask, “Whats New”. Its not a very big deal, but when you think of it, isn’t it much better than asking “How are you?”
My intention of starting this blog was to blog for the joy of blogging, to write down random ramblings and to document my life. The only people I expected to read this was my real family and the people I think as my family.
But soon it became an obsession and started growing on me. I started writing down every thing in my life, and it grew to a point where I didn’t want to do something, cuz, if I did, I would have to write it down in here. I felt it during the Tata Jagriti Yatra where I had to note down the details somewhere so that I would remember it when I was blogging here. It was not fun anymore.
The boarding point of Tata Jagriti Yatra was Bombay. My mom’s sister lives in Bombay, so the plan was to come here a day early and spend a day in Bombay.
I got on the train on 21st, Tuesday. Too bad, my uncles dad passed away the very same day and mom’s sister was coming back home to Kerala. But she had made arrangements for my stay in one of her neighbours’ home, Alice aunty and family, they are also my relatives by too distant ones.
It has been a month of travel so far. It started with the Trip to Bangalore to meet Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at his ashram in Bangalore.
39 of us from the YES+ team got on the bus on a Friday evening and got off. On the way we had food-less hotels, water-less bathrooms, and powerless mobile phones, but it all didn’t matter because after all those troubles we were finally home at the ashram.
