TJY Ends and Real Yatra Begins…

Our lovely train...Oops sorry Yatris our home for 18 days...

Mithapur was our last destination to be visited.  There we had a wonderful CNBC panel discussion about how to keep yatri spirit alive throughout our life. Anand Kumar (Man behind Super30), Anshu Gupta (GOONJ) and R. Elango (Kuthumbakkam village) were there in panel. They have shared some of the ultimate experiences from their lives. It was like boost for lifetime!

And finally the historical journey came to an end on 11th night at Mumbai. Almost everyone was bidding a tearful farewell to each other. We were taking loads of memories and learning which will surely prove helpful in undertaking current and future entrepreneurial endeavors. All the Yatris were presented a memento, books about Tata’s Story and Tata Nano and a Sonata Watch.

No one wanted to depart. It seemed as if we had been living together since years and train was our house. No one knows when we will get chance to celebrate 31st Dec on a DJ with 400 enthusiasts in train? We won’t be able to take bath in train anymore… No one will wake up me with those inspirational songs in the morning. I’ll miss whole family of 400 and that delicious food too…

Everyone is back to his/her own world… Some are working hard to became next Tata’s and Gates…Some are working on grass root in various NGOs…Some are preparing to join IAS whereas some are preparing to fight a battle against dirty politics… This is the end of TJY but the real journey has started now…We are facing many of real life problems whenever we are trying to do something good. But we are not going to give up…! And one day we’ll be really proud be change makers…

Yaaro chalo badalneki rut hai…
