Enlightenment & Peace?
Aren’t these supposed to be strong words and expectations from life?
All our life we have been searching for the answers that are mostly within us. If we choose to walk on a path that leads us toward an authentic living, we’ll surely find our souls empty of questions. 🌻

Imagine having a classroom located at the top of the hill for some time. Having a window that distracts you with those green but misty mountains. The soft and cold breeze that chills you with those ice-creamy skies.
What if I say I’m working with such schools?
The children of this community provide me an atmosphere which is family oriented. They make you feel like you are an angel and that’s the biggest encouragement to take in all the efforts to do something for them.
It wasn’t that easy when I actually began this journey. Being a girl I had to be sure about my safety in these remote areas. But when you start taking small steps and start trusting families from these locations you get encouraged to explore more. And when you go through some homesickness, challenges and still find a sense of happiness you would want to explore more and this is what happened to me.
As I and my team are under a District Transformation Program, we need to work with the Head masters of these government schools and build leadership within them. Our aim is students development. So that they achieve immense knowledge that they deserve.
My trek toward these schools has been difficult. Every school is mostly situated on the top of the Kumaon Hills. Even though Pahadi people are used to it, when people like me come from Metro Cities like mine, happen to exhaust and tremble a lot.
There have been days when I had no means of transport and I had to walk back for 16kms daily. Apart from this climbing my way to different schools was spraining. Eventually the best part was to never give up. I have felt the sense of inner achievement on every visit of mine to school.
As I have performed various teaching patterns and introduced these children with the bigger world, I am planning to help them with career guidance and a healthy friendship.
( My 2nd week experience page ) :
Today was one such day where I visited these students at Banshe P.S and I wish to be assigned for this school. All I wish to do is while the students are living between the skies, taking all the efforts to let them reach great heights as well. This fellowship is blessing our team with so many buddy-relations with these kids which we are never going to forget.
Oh yeah this is just the beginning.

Have a look at those sharp mountains behind. The wild finishing to it’s skin are bruised by the frequent landslides. But it still continues to stand huge, strong & still.
Are you getting me?
In the past few month after travelling into this heavenly district of Uttarakhand, I have been surrounded with people that have never seen more than what was made visible by the doors.
Many people with no hope of climbing down those mountains and migrating to a better place. Also children who have no clue how a city looks like or even had a simple bus ride.
These experiences have formed a baggage of emotions within me and everyday I think of ways to be a part of their lives. I crave to create a fairyland for them all. So that when I return to my city, I’ll have all hope that someday many of these kids might come down to meet me as well with all their achievements.
Let me share my experiences with these beautiful disasters.
I’ve seen land slides. Walked on many roads with a fear of collapsing down the hill with the roads. Dared to look up above with worried predictions of huge stones sliding above me.
I never knew how earthquakes feel like till I experienced a smaller one last month. Even though it was just a shaky experience but you never know what it could have resulted into.
Mostly travelled on the edge of the roads looking at how deep the hills are and wondered what if I die? No one might even find my traces.
I’ve climbed cold hills with worried feets.
Every strangers welcoming smile that was adorable, alarmed me of being on a safer side in the deep forest roads of these remote locations.
They say this place includes huge alcoholism and fear of leopards.
But where are we safe on this earth? No where. These are all challenges that I chose to accept and is why I’m walking without turning behind.
Between these beautiful disasters I have found how beautiful my life could be. 🙂

Time really changes, along with us and our situations.
I’ve noticed some change within me and within those people whom I used to come across regularly before and the way I deal with the things today and how bold I could be.
Suddenly the tables are turned and I exist everywhere.
But now I question myself that do I really need all of this? I don’t really know how to answer this but I know what I really don’t need anymore.
So I want to go back far to that place beautiful, that teached me how life should be treated.
If there is any story that I wouldn’t want to leave incomplete, it would only be all about my fellowship.
I’m blessed & this is why I am a Gandhi Fellow.
Though I’m back to Mumbai for my vacation but sooner will be leaving toward Rajasthan for our Boot Camp.
And after that will travel a little more toward the lap of Himalayas where the work will be back on track.
Have a Happy Diwali! 🌻
