My Solo Poem..

My Solo Poem...

Off I go today;
Into the planes flying in the ocean of wind,
Overwhelmed with the excitement to see a new life,
trying to live a dream I have just disciplined,
So off I venture today;
Into the darkness of the enormous sky,
searching for something with an empty sight,
that maybe there is still hope left in this life,
So off I wander today,
into the peaceful shores of sea,
I close my eyes and try to feel,
pain is all I got which only seems real to me,
So off I roam today,
into the colorful illusion of life,
I try to search for some pieces,
I may have lost in my time,
but only thing I know is nothing stays divine,
So off I finally try today,
to fly away with my broken wings,
sometimes I hurt,
sometimes I fall,
but in these wounds of time,
I think I found a reason of my living!

How much traveling have you done in your life?

How much traveling have you done in your life?

This is one of the questions I always ask every second person I met in my life. There are lot of facts one can easily find on internet or in various articles about how many people understand the meaning of travel but for me it always important to know from someone whom you meet in your everyday life. So what do you think how much traveling people actually do in their life?

Well to my surprise, almost more than 90% percent of the people I met have hardly done any traveling. Why? Because either they believe they donโ€™t have enough time for it or otherwise they simply cant afford enough money to do any traveling. Travel for them was simply a luxury or merely unwanted use of time. And when they really get time lets say once in year or two, to plan a vacation, they presume traveling to be as a black & white picture! What it means, that for them to travel, it has to be perfect scenario with best accommodations, best airlines, per-designed itineraries etc. and for that they usually pick any tour operator and opt for available group tours. I called it as a white side thinking. The black side would be opposite of it which means a totally low cost budget tour . For such people there is no grey area present for them. And they live with this mindset throughout their life.

How much traveling in life

What do you think how do these people find their happiness then? well the easiest answer would be shopping, movies, clubs, home decorations, beauty salons, spas โ€ฆlist can be really long or they would find their passion in boosting about high end luxury cars or their hoards of investments.

Lets talk about another 10%. These are the people who find their ways to travel from all the varying circumstances of their life. These people usually look life from that grey area where the travel part does not means to be a unique or expensive experience which only certain people can afford. But what led to these 10% help to change their outlook of seeing the life of travel?

When I started to travel couple of years back, I thought for that moment I was doing something out of the ordinary and unique. But when I went to new destinations and met new people, I realized travel is the most down-to-earth experience one can experience in their life. You will tend to see and meet people from all age groups and ethnic religion who are just traveling to experience the life on the other side. Every country or city has its own life and to experience that life in the form of buildings, nature, food, people was just life-changing in-itself. This very realization helped me changed my outlook to believe that traveling can be a part of living your life.

As far as money is concerned, its all about setting your priorities and changing the mindset. Spending less on materialistic approach and saving more for your travels, if you truly desire to travel, you will find your way out accordingly. There is no rocket science behind it. It simple willingness to pursue your travel dreams.

Our life as it says is a very small part of the whole universeย  merely a stardust. The future is always unpredictable, even though you try to work hard and save more today, you can never be sure in the face of nature how long you will live or how your life will actually turn up. Our life is really short, you only have chance to live once, so the question is, do you really want to live the same old usual life which you are living now and want to pursue a life full of amazing experiences!!

So tell me how much traveling have you done in your life?

Thinking Of The Life You Have Chosen? Make A Bucket List & Live One!

Thinking Of The Life You Have Chosen? Make A Bucket List & Live One!

Most of us, at some moment of time, must have thought doing something new in our life, something out of the routine, something silly, something stupid or some left over wish which you wanted for so long. But what happened? Why did we left these thoughts or wishes on the way of our life journey? And why are we keep doing this even now?

Dreams and Wishes

For a long time, I always dream to visit Paris and see the Eiffel tower one day. It was a far fetched dream for me living in India as I always thought, that the life I have chosen today was actually given to me by the circumstances wrapping me all around. To me it felt like an extraordinarily dream in my ordinary world. On the other hand, I was per-occupied in the race of chasing career goals, earning money to establish myself and feared risking myself for such a dream will only be foolish thing now. So, scrapping this thought I moved ahead towards my normal life and tried to keep myself happy by involving into all those materialistic activities, you know like shopping, movies, investments, home improvements, gadgets etc. you name it!

But, somewhere, even after doing all such things, I could never felt that moment of happiness inside. It felt as if I was tied up in my own restraints. It was like a black and white feelings where inside it was lacking the blend of colors. So one day, while reading a magazine, I bumped on the this idea of โ€œBucket Listโ€ which people has been doing nowadays. (For those who donโ€™t know what it means โ€“ Its a list of all those things you want to do in your lifetime before you die). After learning what it meas, I thought for a moment what harm in making my own bucket list, even for fun! So I finally sat down, opened my notepad, picked a pen and just wrote down all those things I so wanted to in life. And from the moment when I started writing till the end of that list I could literally feel the goosbumbps and streak of excitement which was rolling all over my body,ย  as if, I was really going to do all these things in real. But was I? I kept that list with me for a while and again moved on in my usual day to day life. But, I just could not let go this amazing feeling of accomplishing all these things in real. And to be honest, how could I? It was my only ticket to start living my life again.

So, finally I decided to plan a small euro trip to Paris and once for all cross the first item of my bucket list. After re-searching for few months and planning, I finally went for it and believe me the happiness I experienced just cannot be expressed in words!!

From this moment there has been no stopping and I am still chasing my dreams. All you need sometimes is patience and faith. If you keep your life and needs simple, you can even pass all the financial restraints of life.

In the end, I would like to leave you with a nice quote I picked up from a movie called โ€œThe Wayโ€ where a 40 year old guy (who recently quit his doctorate & going to accomplish a pilgrimage trail in Europe) was with 60 years old father (and a famous surgeon) in his car who was dropping him at the airport. His asked his dad to accompany him on this trail along with him but his dad denied saying its the life he chose to liveโ€ฆ..After few days his dad received a call while he was playing golf that his son passed away and the father finally left everything to complete the journey which his son left behind.

The quote was :

โ€ You Donโ€™t choose a life Dadโ€ฆโ€ฆyou live one!โ€

Discover A Life, Experience A smile, Live A Moment In This Time!

Discover A Life, Experience A smile, Live A Moment In This Time!

When was the last time you did something which had been a real living experience in your life? What if you could go on for discovering a new place which you always dream in life? Imagining a moment where you could walk on The great wall of china or watch The northern lights in Iceland Or go on a Trek to famous โ€œMachu Pichuโ€ in South America or watch โ€œWhale watchingโ€ on your way to arctic Or watch the famous sunset in Santorini in the vast Aegean seaโ€ฆ.looks like a dream?

Well, there was a time when I always used to think about that elusive โ€œIf I could haveโ€ thought round and round, again and again, while regretting for so many things I always wanted to do or wished to visit in life, but was always struck with in our so called mechanical world which we live in everyday or the financial or social fears that surrounds us all time. Its like a viscous circle, you wake up in the morning, go for a morning walk or jogging, fetch a cup of tea or coffee, pick up a newspaper, get freshen up and leave for your work, slogging your day off betweenย  the bureaucratic world and then returning back in the evening all tired up, filled with the world of insecurities and debts of your car or home and all materialistic things which you feed on everyday and finally had the dinner with your family talking about all the pending things or future investments which rule your very own world all the time.

But, what if, for a moment, you believe that things can be different or non โ€“ predictable? what if you except these fears and strike a pin on that rolling viscous circle to make it stop for a moment?

Well, to be honest, the life around you in which you are living is not going anywhere for too long, but, the one thing which has to come to end once for all is you, your own life! For sure we never know when that journey will end, but when the day finally comes, the only things which you will remember will be your regrets!! Nothing else matter and nothing else will go away with you.


Its a choice you have to make, to step out of your comfort zone, take a step out of the usual box of life, and start discovering a life around you by going to places you have never been before. Whenever I travel to a new place anytime, I always try to visit places in local buses, or metros or trains, try to meet new people or just watch the moments happening around which shape itself in this new fabric of this very place. Capturing the smiles of people whether they are kids playing on the rainy streets of Delhi or a group of friends sharing their evening time along the Bay of Manila,ย  or a couple standing in front of glowing Eiffel tower in night looking at each other with shining happiness or of an old man in his 60-70s waving a smile of achievement while walking the small famous hiking trail of Santorini Island or maybe a live wedding couple hugging each other in front of a church in Zurichโ€ฆ.its feels like re-living the life itself.

Well if the idea really coins your mind, I would like to leave you behind with a nice inspirational quote to start perusing your travel dreams :

โ€œTo move, to breathe, to fly, to float; to gain all while you give; to roam the roads of lands remote; to travel is to live.โ€ โ€• Hans Christian Andersen
