“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.”
C. JoyBell C.

This blog is dedicated to my thought process, learning, challenges, and vague ideas. I started this blog in mid 2011, when I was in Madurai. That time I was alone, lost in my thoughts and was bit confuse about my future. When I started writing my sole purpose was to improve my English. With time, my blog became my friend with whom I can share any thought who disturbs me, motivates me, or any idea who crawls in my mind. Writing also helped me to know myself  But as Benjamin Franklin said “There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self” it is all true for all of us. Throughout we struggle for many things except to understand our self. “If youth knew if age could”  things would have been different.

Here sharing a bit about myself.

My name is Yogesh. My home state is Uttarakhand; beautiful hilly state in India. My date of birth is 24 December 1987. My parents are living in my village, Garsher. My elder brother with his family is in Delhi. My native place is Kausani Which is also known as India’s Switzerland. I have done my schooling in my hometown till 12th. For graduation I was in Gobind Ballabh Pant Agriculture & Technology University Pantnagar as Agriculture graduate. Later I have joined Tata Dhan Academy for “Post graduate diploma in development management”. It was the time when I explored the rural India and I could sense what I really wanted to do in my life and more important How I can do that.

After two years in TDA, I have joined Aga Khan Rural Support Programme (India) in Gujarat. Here I started working in Dangs, district. It is a tribal district and my responsibility was to look after agriculture work. I really enjoyed my time here and had life time learning from tribal life. the way tribal community lives, that has changed my whole perspective about life. Today I am more comfortable with my needs, wishes, and desires.

The fact is, with passing time this information will also change and may be down the line after 4-5 years I may stuck in a job or start my own venture or working as civil servant, things are unpredictable. whatever I will do the core inspiration will be the same “exploring self” as Aristotle said “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom”.

  1. Hi dude..
    read your blog.
    you should be serious for your studies, be innovative and even try to have a broder vision in terms of development, as these days India is passing through from a very crucial stage. we have one of the largest market in the world, we have a great number of young guns, we are having lakhs of proffesional graduates every year, by observing these a mass FDI flowing towrds INDIA. Development should not be focused on a small time “Kamchalau”, development always should be sustainalble, it becomes very crucial when you are planning to do it at a virgin state like “Uttrakhand”.

    Wishing you Good luck..
    Pay my regards to ANANDA & other faculties at your academy

  6. Dear Yogesh ji , Girish ji Chandu ji and all those who are serious in working at root level for our native state UTTRAKHAND. My name is Sagar Singh my native village is in Ramgarh, Nainital. I have done my schooling from pantnagar. I have worked in nearly in 18 states and UT in my career. I along with my wife who is a gold medalist from IIT-Bombay are working on few projects there in our village e.g. water conservation, practices to be followed for better rainfall at our region, proper payment for farmers as it is very measly right now, etc. we are now trying to take our project to villages near rahikhet and bhowali. So we want the support from like-minded people in any capacity(i am not talking about money).

    Thanks waiting for positive response.
