A small step can make a big difference.
A small step can make a big difference.
So here’s the small part of the big game, my fundraising campaign is live now and just like always, i need your help and support.
Please check out and share with others.
Love travelling? But a middle class fella?
No worries anymore. It takes our will to travel, not money. Really.
Where ever you go, go with all your heart – confucius
When you see, it does not read like, “Where ever you go, go with all your money”
Well, this is nothing but according to my personal experience. Be it the trip of Punjab or the Mighty Himalayas or our own heaven on earth, Ladakh.
I covered 4 big cities of Punjab (Jallandhar, Ludhiana, Amritsar, Punjab) in 3800 rs.
A road trip of 11 days to ladakh in just 8000.
But before that, let me explain this.
When i was planning my trip to ladakh I interacted with many people who had been there, asked about the hotel prices and everyone amazed my ears by telling the prices of night as low as 1000-1500 rs.
So according to them, i needed a budget of 18-20k for my trip but to their surprise, 16k was the budget for two of us and we covered everything smoothly.
Whether you are a student saving money to travel, a working man who saves 15k for one trip in a year and waits for another year to go travel the beautiful world, you need to be smart traveller.
what if you say me, “I travel one state in 15k” and what if i say you, “you can travel 3 states in 15k”
Well thats something nobody would like to ignore.
Now, there are certain things to consider-:
- As soon as you step out of your house, lock your luxuries in. Staying in expensive and luxurious hotels is not a smart choice because travelling itself is a luxury.
- Avoid booking the hotels online unless you are getting a good discount. Bargain on the spot and you can get a homestay for as low as 300 rs. or free of cost. Talking and interacting with them will also make you know about their culture.
- Eat roadside or homecooked foods as it way cheaper than that available in those big concrete buildings plus, they people provide food to earn their livelihood not for great profits.
There are hundreds of things to consider but i cant write everything in just one post.
Soon i am opening my Youtube channel where i will upload all my rides and documentaries, and videos for budget travelling including my trip to Spiti Valley (where i will be carrying just 1500 rs.) starting from 7 july.

Rajasthan is one of the important states in India.
Be it our heart touching dialect, daal-baati-choorma, golden sand dunes, royal culture, amazing architectures and ofcourse the pink city.
Last week I was shooting for my campaign and got to see some amazing Colors of Jaipur.
As soon as it started getting darker, the pink hawa mahal changed it’s color in Gold like Gold. Though i stood there for 20 minutes, it looked like it was only me and that amazing creation. Rest everything was moving silent.
Oh wait !!
Let me share a picture which i clicked first after waiting for the sun to set. The jal mahal from nahargarh.
And then there is this museum where the old MUMMY rests in peace, the Albert Hall.
A white structure with hundreds of birds in front, is how it looks during daylight.
But can you believe white turns into gold when the darkness tries to overshadow.
Just like, when the sun sets, it spreads a sheet of it’s sunrays on this museum.
A name which comes to our mind when we hear names like lakes, architecture, food, history, culture, forts and rajputana.
The first planned city post independence, is on everyone’s top list during their visit to North India.
Two days back when I was roaming around the city to find a perfect place for my shoot’s background, I realised how much i underestimated this city where i am living from last 4 years.
When i was on my way to nahargarh, i stopped on the road and got this view which according to me is the best view to witness the beauty of Jal Mahal or Man Sagar lake.
I don’t know what stopped me and i realised after sitting one hour that i didn’t do anything. I was jist sitting and looking at this serene beauty.
We get to see every every generation from here.
The nature which is perfectly created by God, our forefathers generation which created these incomparable architectures and the last, ourselves, who are busy in giving these buildings more ways to look good in our cameras.
This place is my personal favourite in Jaipur to spend time alone.
Look at this now.
No not at my motorcycle, the beauty behind, The Albert Hall.
Does it remind you of something similar in one or other way ?
Yes, to me, it does.
The Golden Temple of Amritsar i visited back in October 2015.
For you all not to get confused who are not aware of this museum, unlike the Golden Temple, this is not made up of gold, but the lights in the night gives quite similar look of that.
I stopped by for few minutes to add more Colors to the frame with my motorcycle.
Well that’s the beauty of Jaipur. One place has it’s two beauties in day and night.
I hope the night tourism will get a boost in upcoming days.
🙂 🙂 🙂
Just sharing a quick snap with you all.
To shoot my promotional video for the campaign, I have finalized this place for the first part of shoot.
‘Jal Mahal’ is beautiful in it’s own way. No matter from where and what different places you see it from, it will never disappoint you.
One of my favourite places in jaipur to spend the evening.
Hey everyone. Just writing this small post and requesting you everyone to workout at least 30 minutes a day. It’s hardly 3% of your entire day.
The type of body we maintain till the age of 30 decides our future body shape, stamina and strength.
Late is never, start working out.
Eat healthy. Avoid fast processed food and junk food. Prefer home made food.
Drink 4 litres water everyday.
If you are working out daily for ౩-4 muscles, the protein intake for you is “Body weight * 2” grams
If you are a beginner or just training muscles with light weight or own body weight then the protein intake is “Body weight * 1.8” grams.
If you want to gain muscles then go for 3000+ calories and high carbs diet.
If you are loosing weight then go for low carbs and 1500-2000 calories per day.
Start following, don’t lie to yourself.
Eat healthy, stay healthy, stay happy, stay motivated.
Remember, exercise is just 20% in transformation. The whole game is of healthy and routine diet. ✌
Yes it’s a question to everyone. Do you really hear yourself?
Many friends of mine have asked me, complained me about their life.
Not happy with whatever is going in the life, not aware of the actions to take, what to do.
But i just can’t say anything much but to stay positive and motivated.
Born in a Rich, Middle class or poor family !! Taking care of family business, doing 5-8 table work regardless your interest.
Every other guy does the same and this will lead to a world where buried dreams will overtake count of dead bodies under the earth.
Everyone has some potential but then our parents know some ‘Sharma Ji’ in the neighborhood with a child with brilliant brain.
It’s the time. To stand, to rise, to shine.
Life always has a happy ending, you just don’t give up.
Failures will teach you the importance of success.
Hear yourself. Do what you love. Don’t care about anything else.
Maybe today you are not happy with what you are doing or what is going through your life but that doesn’t mean you are not destined for what you deserve.
If you are dreaming very big and unconfident about it, keep dreaming. Because if there is even 1% chance of succeeding, you should take it as absolute certainty.
And one day, definitely, One day, you will find yourself.
“Because I can’t get enough of it”
A motorcycle isn’t just an engine, it’s a companion. Even more than that in my eyes.
The two wheels doesn’t carry your body, they carry your soul.

4) Adjusted indicators on handle bar.
