It’s been more than 24 hours since I bid goodbye to the train, the yatris, the organizers and the yatra itself, but the memories keep coming back to me – like images being flashed at me at tremendous speed. Jagriti Yatra 2010 has really been a memorable one for me. I have learned and unlearned so much during this yatra and I still haven’t figured out a lot of what has changed in me because of the experiences.
I firmly believe that “It’s all about the PEOPLE” and the yatra just reinstates my belief in that thought. I met a variety of people at the yatra – as friends, group members, buddies, facilitators, organizers, volunteers, caterers, role models, local and even random strangers – all of them affected me in different ways – some inspired me, some made me smile, some motivated me, some excited me, some bored me and a few even irritated me! But they all made my experience at the yatra a very fulfilling one…..
The next couple of posts are stories about some of these people and their impact on me.
