What breaks you

The road to recovery looks long and tough. The repairs are complete, bruises are healed but that spirit has gone into hiding in last two months. The drawing plans have changed, from 600 KMs in a day to even 220 KMs looks a big daunting task, such is a mental state that even I opted against riding to Auto Expo and instead travelled in a friend's car. Best friend and riding partner has left the city, and not in good terms with most of remains. Missing calls, not having meals, getting irritated, skipping events, has become all too familiar to people around. Favourite songs doesn't appear to be soothing anymore, visiting the places in Delhi alone that I used to visit with a dear one a decade back doesn't help the cause either. YouTube 1000 Subscribers rule really hurts me to the core. I had genuinely put in lot of effort and I am still so away from minimum required, perhaps the only one in core motovloggers friends group who were regular since I started. Success is something I have never tasted anyways and now even the dream of riding along the entire silk route also seems to be over .
But today something incredible happened. After a long tough tiring day, I remembered I had to get back to a query of person who asked me if Joby works well with an action camera. I was not able to locate his message and hence, kept going down in message section. There were some messages from people being really happy about me sharing Spiti valley and J&K photos and that brought the much needed smile on my face. I saw the photos I had shared and realized what an incredible journey it has been over past year and what makes me even more satisfied was that I was able to bring the landscape to your phones, in order to make you feel what is it like to ride solo to world's most dangerous roads, how beautiful Himalayan terrain is, how happy the people are in remote even though they barely have anything
And that is why I am back to drawing board and maps, the new riding plans will be more daunting, higher, more remote with beautiful landscapes, later this year. .
