Is It Worth Going On The Jagriti Yatra?

Some of you might remember me taking part in the Jagriti Yatra (previously Tata Jagriti Yatra) and writing about it. This was in 2010.

Sometimes its fun while doing it, sometimes its an insurance for fun in the future, and again sometimes we do things just to make sure that they don’t stand in the way of having fun at some point in the future.

People keep asking me this question, What do I do for fun. And it got me thinking. Truth is am not doing anything for fun. I don’t go out on weekends doing fun stuff like hobbies or traveling. I don’t stand in line to see a movie or hangout with my friends every now and then. In many ways there is no fun at all.
