I see a hilltop on the horizon. A lot of green and bits of white thrown into its midst. There are wild flowers of every colour whose names I do not care to know. They belong exclusively to this hill, to me. I feel a wind blowing across my face, beckoning me to come closer. It is not too cold,…

Time and again, I have Dufresne’s words to Red, in The Shawshank Redemption, echo in my head- one of the better things in life is hope because hope can be your driving factor to help you escape places, physical or mental. And there comes a point in life, when you realize that hope can have varied sources. You feel the…

My mother still has the habit of prodding me on every New Year’s Eve as to whether I have decided on a resolution for the upcoming twelve months. You’d think that considering the generation gap that exists between us, I’d be the one chalking down a diary full of aspirations. Instead, it has been some time since I took up…

My visits to my social media platforms are often marred with long spells of inactivity. To the extent that my existence, even in real life is subjected to severe inquiries.

Project FUEL, Travel, Solo, Life Lessons, Deepak Ramola

There is probably a reason why traveling alone is often seen as a symbol of freedom. There is also a reason why it is seen as a means to heal, and people who often go for solo trips define it as a religious and spiritual experience. It is undoubtedly unique. When I write about traveling, I don’t just mean packing…

I would like to share a small part of my experience, one that I came across on my journey of healing (from a past relationship) and self-discovery. The journey hasn’t ended yet.
