Bio: 
I am a student of Sociology who is going to graduate in less than a month but still quite unsure of "what to be" in life. At the moment, I am looking for an open, unstructured space to learn from and explore myself. For me, going to the mountains is going home, it always gives me a sense of clarity and more than that, it is enriching and healing. The activities that I truly enjoy doing are trekking, rafting, painting etc. I write occasionally too, most of my writings being on social inclusion. I share a strong relationship with nature and I make conscious shifts in my life towards showing gratitude to nature, not using toilet paper is one of the smallest thing I maintain. The rush and noise of city life is something I do not prefer. For me community service is not a mission to enhance my experience but a labor of love towards myself, as doing what I love eventually makes me love myself more and in the process I end up being a better person for people around me as well. I am very open to differences and believe in the magic diversity creates.
Volunteering Experience: 
In December 2015, I went on a group exposure to a remote village Harda, Madhya Pradesh, organised by an NGO, Pravah. This one week's program changed my perceptions towards certain things. To share a few, it made me realized that development does not only mean scientifically and technologically advanced. It means moving along without leaving anyone out. These are things I learnt from interactions with the villagers, discussions with the village council head etc. Doing the same activities as any of them gave me deeper insight to rural life which I liked. Recently, I went on a journey to the Himalayas along with 22 strangers. It was a week's "walk with nature" (Padh-Yatra) organised by Youth Alliance of India. The purpose of the journey was to walk with nature. We witnessed unbelievable things getting unfolded naturally, we came as strangers and left as friends. We found great joy in climbing the mountain together as one, in cooking our own food with minimum resources, in sleeping in the cave. The true essence of the journey was to create oneness among one another and with nature. This journey has made me more conscious on different levels. Currently I am seeking for an experience into the unknown, I would like to be in a place and with people I know nothing about. I am looking for familiarity in the strange.
