A Day to Life Post- 86!

“Why do all good things come to an end?
Come to an end, come to an,
Why do all good things come to an end?”.

These are the only lines running in my head. I dont want such a beautiful trip to come to an end. I dont wanna say goodbye to myself. Its been 5 weeks and it feels as if I have found myself, finally! I feel so energised, I feel like a whirlpool and a power house which is packed with way too much of energy. I still have few more days before all this gets over, before I come back to my life back at home, but trust me I would rather prefer this life than the one back at home. Few more days of this trip, or maybe I might just end up extending the trip again. :)

The person whom I met plans to extend the trip too, so you never know, I might just end up staying for more days. I like it away from home, away from all the confusion, away from all the stress, away from all the clutter, from the mess up, it’s like out of sight out of mind. Life is way too messed up, well who’s life isn’t. This person hasn’t asked me anything about my past, this person doesn’t wanna know how messed up my life is, this person just wants to see me happy, this person has also started chanting with me.. How amazing is that!

I want to share a picture that I wake up to seeing every morning and chant looking at.

This is what I wake up to every morning and chant, so who would want to go back. Not me! Life has never been so amazing, peaceful and I have never been so happy.

Have an amazing weekend everyone!

What’s the best thing when you travel apart from seeing the place off course? The people that you meet during your journey. In my ongoing trip for over 3 weeks now, I met so many people, locals and people those are tourists just like me. And in this entire journey, I met a person who saw right through me, it was as if this person could see through my soul, who surprisingly read the sadness in my eyes during the first meet.

I have this werid thing, I am not good at hiding emotions, if I’m sad it’s seen in my eyes and if I am happy again it’s seen in my eyes. This person sensed that there’s something going on, this person sensed how unhappy I was inspite of being at the best location and instead of being happy, since I was traveling the world, I wasn’t really happy at all. This person could sense that how lonely I am in my life. That’s the reality of my life, which I have come to terms with. I have no problem with being alone, you aren’t answerable to anyone. And now I love the freedom.

We started hanging out and have become good friends. We talk so much about life, I really don’t remember when was the last when I spoke to someone so much, I don’t even remember when was the last time when someone just wanted to listen me talk. Trust me I can really talk when I want to but unfortunately since couple of years I had stopped talking, kept everything to myself because no one was there to listen to me. And now finally this person let me talk, lol.  We managed to meditate together and do a bit of yoga as well. Since we figured that we both are yoga lovers.

This person is also a traveller like me, so yeah some day we have to go back to our respective destinations. Recently I was telling a friend of mine that I don’t wanna come back to Mumbai, there’s nothing there for me. I don’t like that city anymore. All she said was, someday you will have to. Someday this journey will end. It is so true, no matter where ever we go and where ever we are, one day we all have to return to a place which is our own, home.

This person will also return back soon and we plan to stay in touch. Isn’t it amazing how people from different places with different background and culture and religion meet at an altogether different city just because we love travelling. This is the best part of travelling, you get to meet so many people and get to know so many cultures.

Just want to end the post with couple of more pictures.

Amazing snow clad mountains. Loved every bit of walking, trekking, lying down and making snow angels on them.

When I was deciding this trip of mine, I wanted it to be adventurous. I planned for few adventure sports that I could do, which were paragliding, river rafting and bunjee jumping. But out of these three just one was possible, which is paragliding. And trust me I have never felt so alive ever in my life before. Seeing the world from a different view altogether. The paragliding point was around 12000 feet high above, yes! The best part was it was from a snow clad mountain. I won’t deny that I wasn’t scared, I was a little but when the flight took off I forgot all my nervousness, all my problems and all the stress in my life. I for once felt as if I could touch the sky. Till today I used to always wonder what it would be to see the world from that height, when you aren’t in a closed airplane. I used to wonder what do the birds feel.. Now I get the point. I felt freedom, I felt alive, the adrenaline rush which I had never felt before. 

Now I why people choose these adventure sport has their life.. Now I know why they love the adrenaline rush so much. 

I did have a professional paraglider along who was operating the flight. But it was worth everything. 

Sharing with you all few pictures of the whole experience.

Travelling is what I love and travelling is what makes me alive. I’m living a nomadic life over 2 weeks now and trust me I’m just getting closer to myself and to Mother Nature around. And I’m loving it. 

Sharing few pictures with you for now. All I can say that the place I’m right now has a lowest temperature of -1 to -4 degrees almost every evening and walking almost 7-8 kms everyday. I’m loving it. I will make a post in detail once I’m back. 

Happy Sunday everyone ! 

 

 

Climbed a mountain of around 3000 metres high.

My silence is not my weakness.. It’s the beginning of my strength and it simply means that I dont find somethings important anymore.
This line has been running in my head since more than a week now. Doesn’t it give one a sense of achievement that finally you are not bothered with what people do? It does to me and it has only been possible because of my chanting.

Lately, I found myself being taken granted all over again by a person who was and is close to me. For me, after what I have gone through these 2 and a half years, it felt like deja vu and I am sure for all it’s not a great feeling at all. This person has always taken me for granted for the past 2 and a half years, and two weeks back it was the same. Why is it that when you have someone or something, we forget to value and appreciate them or it? It’s only when faith decides to take it away is when we realise it’s importance. I have asked this question way too many on my previous posts and trust me I always fail to get answers.

This time when I was taken granted for I simply did not allow it to affect me in anyway, I plan to move on. Move on to a better life, I realised that sitting and thinking about all these things is not going to give me anything, it’s better to not let this thing bother me at all. Which is not easy, but it is not impossible. It’s all about your dignity and self respect and no one else is responsible for it but we ourselves.

On March 1, I attended a study training course which was held by SGI Study Department Chief, who visited India from Japan, it was the first time that something like was held in Mumbai. The course was attended by 2500 leaders and I was one of them, including around 500 outstation guests from South and other cities of West India. From Mumbai we were around 2050 leaders, which was amazing. After listening to the study chief talk in Japanese, my friend and I decided to learn Japanese. I thought it would become easier to understand and feel more connected to the practice because Nichiren Daishonin was born in Japan. I am really looking forward to learn a new language, since I also plan to visit Japan soon. :)

Well that’s all for now. Will write soon! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Belated Happy Women’s Day to all the wonderful ladies! :)

Hello everyone! I am sure we all love traveling, and so do I. I love going to different places and explore the country/city, get into their roots, know their culture and interact with the locals wherever I go. Keeping this passion in mind, I had an idea of turning this passion into my career, in short I have been tossing with an idea of starting up my own online travel agency. So, today I wanted to know few things which will help me in knowing the market worldwide.

Umm, I know it sounds boring, but I would really appreciate all your opinions. At the moment in the stage 1, I am planing to cater to a couple, or a family or a small group of people traveling to Asia, Southeast Asia, Dubai, Turkey and so on. In stage 2, I plan onto catering to maybe group tours. This is the idea that I have been toying around in my head.

So, for that I wanted to know:
1) When you all are traveling, how do you book your travels? Do you prefer an online travel agency or do you go down personally to an agency?
2) Do you prefer a customised travel or the packages that are already available online?
3) Do you prefer making your own itinerary?
4) Why would you buy a travel package from a particular travel agency?
5) What features do you look for when you are on a X travel website?
6) Would you prefer a known travel agency or you would be comfortable by going with a start up?

I think I will just stick with these questions for now, if you all have anything else to share regarding the same topic, please do give your feedback.

Thanks all! :)

A Day to Life Post- 80!

Hello everyone, yes I know it’s been a really long time since my last post, a month to be precise. Well, I think it was more to do with a writing block, I really didnt know what to write, to be honest I still dont know. When I sit down to write a post, at times there is a concept already in my head, and when the writing starts, I keep revising it. But today, I forced myself to blog hoping that my thoughts will come out.
This one month has been a bit interesting I think, though nothing has worked out on the professional end yet, but it did one thing for me, it made me realise my strengths all over again, patience and will power.
I am a person with little mood swings, one minute you will find me with full of energy and the other minute you will see me sitting silently without saying a word. Going for ample interviews made me realise that patience is the key to success. It made me think that you never know when the tables turn, today I went for an interview maybe tomorrow you are sitting in front of me as an interviewee. To be honest, I have never been so patience ever in my life before. I think everyone has their time, and my time will come soon. Maybe I shouldn’t write much about my interviews because most of the interviewers go through my blog. lol.

I guess this is life, everyday is a new lesson and everyday is a new beginning.

Second was my will power which I inherent, thanks to my late dad. He was a man of a very strong will power, whatever he achieved in life was due to his will power and intelligence. And I have been told many times by someone that I have the same will power. If someone faces alot of rejections, he/she are bound to feel dejected, and so did I. But what made me different was, I stood up and walked again, instead of giving up. I dont like to give up on anything in life, like you all can read in the tag line of my blog site, never give up. I think it’s very easy for a person to give up in life, be it anything, but it takes a alot of courage, handwork and strength not to. And I am a strong headed person, so giving up doesn’t happen easily to me. But if I ever do give up on something or someone, then I can never turn back to look at it again.

Last week I was promoted to a ywd block chief in SGI, which means that now I have the responsibilities of other members in my block and it is an amazing feeling. I attended my first area leaders meeting last week, there were around 50 leaders from all the districts present there, and to be a part of such amazing people was overwhelming for me. The entire experience was just unbelievable. I got to meet many senior leaders from other districts and in true sense my journey to kosen-rufu has just begun. That day sitting among so many members was like a scene from the Treasure Tower (a buddhist concept explained by Nichiren Daishonin where the ultimate reality exists) a “Ceremony in the Air”. I felt like we all were actually bonded when the Law was written. Yes, that’s how strong I could feel. It’s amazing what a responsibility can do to a person, especially when given a responsibility to spread happiness. All I have right now is lots of gratitude towards the practice.

Well, I guess I did manage to write finally, lol.
