“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.”

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”.
