Memories- A year in Rajasthan

It’s been a year since I’ve been to Rajasthan. Quitting a corporate job to live in rural Rajasthan seemed fancy but frankly, I was scared and shivered to the worst.

Blank stares. Silence doubts. Spends a lot of time with myself before preparing myself to come here.

Did not know the place. Did not see the place. Did not know what people eat.

I did not know if the place had Internet.
Did not know if the place had safe water. Well, there are people living you’re not special person off from the earth, I told myself.


Did not know the language.
Did not know the customs.
I did not know how people greeted each other.
I did not know if it had ground.

I was anxious to know about everything but, I realized, is there anything. Can I change or prepare if I know about it. I realized, why can’t I go and be there and learned what the place is about.
