“You’ve got the moxie to flock to a crowded market in a city you’ve no idea about. Being how whimsical you are, sometimes I wonder if you would disappear without telling me only to reappear later.”

Ronald and Rochelle had travelled to South East Asia for a trip of a lifetime. While they commonly shared the love for travel, the differences began thereafter. While Ronald liked holidays to be laidback and loved staying away from crowds, Rochelle liked to explore as much as she could.

For her travelling and exploring was like a contest which she always needed to win.

From the time we Indians are born, we are always taught the tenet of “Unity in Diversity“. This is based on the fact that though we have a number of different religions, regions, castes, languages, food items and more in the country, we still live in a united India. Yes, everything is not as perfect as it was intended with discrimination at various levels but then we still celebrate each others festivals, have different types of food and even speak more than one language.

Growing up in an environment like this has always taught me to appreciate diversity in every form. Having traveled to more than 25 countries across Europe, Asia and Africa, I have met people from across the board. It has given me interesting perspectives of their culture, their thoughts and even their beliefs. Eg: Saving and investing a certain amount of money is not just an Indian or specifically an Asian thing. 

Meeting people who are different than we are also plays a strong role in helping remove stereotypes and myths created over many years. Eg: Not everyone from Africa deals in drugs and human trafficking.
