To define is to limit. We think we are novices, in several areas of life. But that inspires us, more than anything else, into wanting to see, learn and do more. With more travel and exposure, we wish to become humbler, richer in experience and of course have a lot of fun as well.
Happy, safe and responsible travel!
Nov 2013: Edit 1: Just re-read this after a long time, and realized it needed an update! We’re both engineers, and the better half has also studied and worked in the field of Design, but we eventually plan to move towards working in something that is more, meaningful to us as a life-long career: something like promoting eco-friendly – green architecture, farming, volunteer work for non-profit organisations working for eco causes and assisting in tackling issues like illiteracy, poverty and its associated evils etc. To that intent, we are preparing letters of intent and parallely trying to develop sensitivity and a “skill set” to see it through. Money costs too much life, as Ralph Waldo Emmerson wrote – and there is more to do than just earn, especially for your own. We wish we can execute this long term plan of ours. Travel helps us relax and regain strength – we are particularly impressed by Nature, by local cultures/traditions and Art. Hoping to be able to see more on our “gabbartrip”!
May 2016: Edit 2: So, here’s another edit, and something that makes me feel happy updating about!
After several months of planning, discussions, occasional doubts and several beautiful inspirations, we have finally managed to actually get into ‘teaching’, and are feeling good about it! There is so much to learn, so much to get inspired and humbled by, and so much to appreciate in the grand design of things, that this has been one of the stronger highlights in the recent past. It gives us enough reason to change something about ourselves, and a lot of new exposure to the way kids live their life, and while we set out to ‘teach’, we’ve realized that you cannot separate it from what teaching teaches you.
Here’s where we are updating everything related to the classes : https://thesummerblossoms.wordpress.com/. Please do go through it and let us know your thoughts / suggestions.
Here is a link of some of our photographs, which attempt, feebly, to capture the incredible beauty of Nature. Living in big cities, where Development is generally exclusive with respect to Nature, these photos transport us back to what is real, what is essential, to what we are really connected with when we remove the noise. Hope you enjoy viewing them just as much as we do! Here’s the link: http://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/profile/810600/#
Have a great day ahead
