Read the travelogue written by motorcycle rider Shekhar wherein he shares his solo bike-riding experience across India.
This Is Shekhar from Hyderabad, Telangana, India. I’m writing this from my home, after riding across India, solo on my bike.
I left my home on 2nd December 2021 and started riding solo on the bike. I spent around 13 months going through different weather conditions by exploring different places, doing various activities, and meeting people from other traditions, cultures, languages, and backgrounds in India. I have been volunteering and participating in work exchange opportunities across India. Most importantly, these opportunities gave me memorable experiences that I could cherish forever.
I used to work as a teacher, manager, kitchen helper, farmer, photographer, and whatever was needed for the situation. In this way of traveling, I could be able to observe my pattern of thoughts and emotions. I could sense that self-concern dropped significantly and there were no self-centered thoughts. Also, I was not bothered about what would happen to me? What would I get? All such things had no scope to pop out, so I was doing this with ease and grace. As this was my willingness to come out of home and experience something new, I never ran out of joy and curiosity.
To put it simply, I had been through space and time during my all-India rides.
Looking forward to interactions and conversations.
