A series of 100 articles from 3500 km of bicycle ride and 3000 km walk along the River Narmada.
Some of you are well aware that in last few years I have been traveling across India.
In last five years I have traveled almost 30000+ km by bicycles and around 10000 km by walking. Some of the significant journeys include bicycle journey from Bombay to Delhi, Haryana to Bombay, cycling across Gujarat and Rajasthan, Bicycle journey along the river Narmada etc.
I have been blessed to walk along the Ganga river from Varanasi to Gomukh tapovan (1800 km), Gangotri to Delhi (700 km), Ladakh walk (Turtuk to leh to Manali 700 km), Narmada River Parikarma (3000+km) and some short few hundred km walks here and there.
And finally I am in the process of documenting the journey.
In the upcoming days, I will share articles with pictures, audios as well as videos on travel, thoughts and reflections during these long journeys, people I met, conditions of the rivers as my walks were along the rivers, learning’s, yearnings, or regrets if any.
I have been avoiding this process since a long time now. Finding excuses not to write. As we all know it’s always better to live the experience rather than talking about it. Or perhaps I was waiting for the flow to happen. But we never flow as long as we make an attempt.
When I started traveling long distances back in end of 2014, I used to say Routine is the most lethal thing which can happen to me. And Now I find nothing more precious than having a discipline in life.
Few friends and some people I have not met whom I know only through social media have been asking me to write more often. Some ask me all kinds of questions e.g. what inspires me to do what I do. How do I manage my finances? Etc. and I have rarely written back to them. For that, my apologies. From now on, once in a week at least, I will make an attempt to write more.
In coming days, I shall share my experiences of traveling in more elaborate manner. I do hope you find my style of sharing engaging and you are able to relate in some ways. And we together explore truth of life through this sharing. If you have any experience to share feel free to share. I will be happy to have a constructive dialogue.
I will use hashtag #walkoflife & #nowherehuman just to ensure everyone can easily search for the old articles whenever they want to.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
