Have you ever felt that nothing is making sense, and no matter how hard you try to be figure things out you just can’t. Well that's what has been happening to me since one year. And then there came a point when I couldn’t take it anymore and decided to leave everything which I didn’t want to  and decided to do what I thought I should.

Till now I’ve acknowledge only three things in my life Bikes, Roads and Adventure. So I decided that I’ll  travel  India on my bike ,as I could only think of that, and after 5 days I just left without any planning at 2 in the night  ,thinking that how worse it can get .

And guess what it started getting better actually, after few days only I started to feel alive , the feeling that I didn’t have to reach anywhere in time , I don’t have to answer to anyone for what I’m doing ,where am I , was just so peaceful.

 Well I won’t lie at time times it went painful and I wished to go back home, but as soon I started riding again, it vanished. The long empty roads were taking me where I wanted to go in some way. The horror of riding in night with rain pouring down with heavy fog and no roads and phone signals  and getting passed out due to cold in Aruanchal Pradesh and ladakh, or the riding in the scrouching heat of Orissa, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu ,Madhya Pradesh ,or getting lost in the valleys of Meghalaya, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, or forgetting the time when riding in the coastal highways of Pondicherry and Kanykumari to Goa, was all making sense to me , it’s something that can only be described in one word that is ‘’FREEDOM’’.

At times I always thought what’s will happen once I go back ,as I was missing 80 days of my college for this , but once I was back ,I realized nothing has changed at all ,everything was just the same boring as I left , which made me realised that , you are the one responsible for your own happiness, the world will never change for you , you’ll have to change if you want to be happy , and yes you can decide to leave the normal world behind when you want to ,and once you are back ,it will be the same usual, the only thing which will be changed will be you , so travel without fear that you’ll be left behind if you don’t go according to rules or plan, because trust me  you won’t .
