This is Rohan Agrawal, 19 years old nomad student from Nagpur Maharashtra, started my journey of learning.
I embarked on my journey of going across the country on 25th August 2020 with some clothes and little accessories in 18-year-old age, without money.
It’s been more than 200 days around now I started my yatra (journey) and will go to every state and will go till Siberia.
I have crossed more than 10 states and 3 union territories till now.
I had always been impressed with the gurukul system of education in which students had to undertake a Deshantan (journey across India), at least once during their course of study. The intention was to learn about India’s culture, its people, broaden one’s perspective on life and learn practical life skills. I decided to imitate the same practice, with the exception that he would also hitchhike when possible.
People have helped me in everything from lift, food, and shelter and even phone recharges and warm clothes and so much love.
People have given me the nicest place in their home to sleep, best food to eat, gone out of their way to assure I may reach the destination or place I have been going to, treated me like their son and brother and what not!
I remember a family that was very poor; they don’t make eggs in their home.
But they brought for me because they wanted to give me some good energized food for the next day adventure
And there are thousands of stories of humanity.
I don’t know what’s the reason behind people’s showers so much unconditional love to me!
I have volunteered in NGOs, hostels, Dhabas, resorts, teaching English, ashrams, and also in farms.
To learn from a different way and show humanity still exist amidst show much negativity in the air.
Love and peace!
