I often look up into the sky, not to assimilate the presence of an almighty, but to bear witness to the constant change in its image. We, as a species, irrespective of our global dominance, are so frail at the hands of nature, that a domineering change in weather casts a fearful shadow in our demeanors. We'll go, run and hide in our shelters, succumbing our daily routines to a perpetual standstill. Man's progression is too lopsided to even consider it an accomplishment, when a gust of wind can bring pragmatic changes in the topography, leaving us bewildered and helpless. Yet, we continue to corrode the earth, bringing us to a point of imbalance, where cities get submerged due to torrential downpours, global platonic plates shudder and volcanoes come to the brink of volatility.
We live limitlessly, on a planet with limited resources, and common sense still eludes us.

“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” - Mark Jenkins

The life here in this bustling metro has always been about one thing, survival. Irrespective of whatever one would say, if we go down to the dearths and intricacies of this city, all you'll find is people living their lives by the minute, scurrying about for that extra money that would go above and beyond their daily expenses. The ones who lead a life of comfort, ones fortunate enough to have their basic needs provided for, focus completely on themselves, conveniently blinding and alienating the thought that might ponder over to the men who are the gears of this city. I suppose societal conditioning and the natural order of evolution pushes us to better ourselves, work towards attaining our fullest potentials, but how did we come to think that the only thing reflecting this purpose of ours is a cocktail of constant monetary gain, unquestionable acceptance and limitless admiration in the hierarchy of society?
Defocus from these trivialities, and you'll see that life isn't about concluding it, being perched on the highest branch, but about knowing and accepting who else you share the tree of life with.

For most, travel has become a means to escape the monotony in their realities. A getaway of sorts from the rudimentary daily ramblings, both inner and external. Then there are the few who travel to ascertain their correlation with the existing universe, a trip taken to extend one's coherence beyond the existing realms. For me, it's always been to engage in something that is innate in every living being, a curiosity bound undertaking that dwells from deep within, asking questions constantly and leaving to get the answers. To understand one's reason to exist, being witness to this magnanimous planet in the cosmos, and to interact and capture the moments that pass by, never to be ascertained from that very position ever again.

Your belief in anything is a process thoroughly scrutinized, not only via societal conditioning but also through internal commotions. The choice, even at the depths of darkness, remains with you to cling onto the light, however bleak it is.
