An explorer, who had landed in Delhi 40 years back while on my way to England. The stopover was for a few hours and so I decided to grab a city guide book from Airport book shop and proceeded on a self-guided city tour. It was my first visit to this country so I took a taxi who eventually acted as my tour guide for the rest of the day.
I visited the monuments that my guide took me to, like Humayun’s Tomb, Qutub Minar, India Gate,Red Fort; and then he dropped me at Chandani Chowk amidst bustling crowd. Endless number of streets within streets, mouth-watering eateries, a huge market for almost everything in this world…you name it, they have it.Subsequently I got lost in old world charm of this market. Thanks to a Rickshaw walah (a cycle rickshaw puller) who rode me to the parking area where my driver cum guide for the day was waiting for me. And we managed all this without a cell phone...Amazing!!!
It was a good decision to explore the city and see it myself rather than dozing off inside the aircraft and soI promised myself to come back again.
On my way back to the Airport, I had bought a book called “Holy Cow” by Sarah MacDonald, from a roadside book seller. It describes the life in India and I could so connect with it from whatever I have witnessed in a few hours of my excursion. Now there was this urge to see what I missed but have read in that book.
Soon I got a chance to come back and this time I was determined to explore as much of India as I can. There is so much to see so much to do. I did a motor bike tour to the interiors of Himalayas and then to treat myself with an Ayurvedic massage, headed straight down to Kerala. A week stay in Somatheeram Ayurvedic Village was bliss.Rice boat cruise in the backwaters of Kerala and having authentic Kerala cuisine with a local family at their farmhouse in Kumarakom were great experiences.
Another leisure destination which ought to be a part of this trip was Goa. In Goa, set your soul free and just flow with the rhythm of life here. What a way to wind up my tour!
Since then every time I visit India, always there is something new I learn about this country. Be it Karim’s curry in Old Delhi or bargaining with a Gujrati woman for an embroidered bed sheet in some interior village of Gujrat.
There is hardly a place in India left which I have not explored so far...been there done that!
During such a visit to India, I met Mr. Srinivas, a planner working for multinational company. He himself is a traveller with a vast knowledge about Indian subcontinent. Our first meeting could be best narrated by him (see his message). Our interest matched and we decided to start a travel company in India.
While we were still ..on our decision, I met Gautam during a bike trip to Himalayas. He was with his team of Phirangis (foreigners).They were all sipping cup of hot tea at a tea stall and after a little discussion with them I came to know what a wonderful person and guide Gautam is. My company’s team was taking shape.
Coincidentally, on another trip to Himalayas I met the third member of our Company- Mokshada, a college going girl who is quite regular with trekking in the Himalayas along with her friends. A brief conversation with her while trekking from Tarala to Margi in Kullu –Shimla trek, I observed, she has good leadership quality and manage the things very well. We decided to meet again in Delhi.
With a complete team by my side, gradually we did all the legal formalities to form a company. Also, we sat together to form our policy and decide the objectives to which we all agree.
