The Travails of a Pillion Rider is the sum of many not-so-common and distinctive experiences. The three diaries (Cultural, Coastal, Camping), through the eyes of a pillion rider, showcase a combination of expeditions and travelogues that help us to understand our environment through modern science and ancient knowledge.
Cultural Diaries documents four unassuming trips connecting the dots to unravel ancient environmental knowledge. Travelling to Kerala in search of an unique environment ritual; exploring Nashik for understanding the Ramayana’s Aranya Kanda; following Emperor Ashoka’s philosophy etched on rock edicts and detailing the ethical connect to nature through a long association with ‘The Adventurers’… these are vignettes of a fascinating journey.
