After having an amazing journey with D. E. Shaw & Arcesium for six years, I am now shifting to the wilderness. Indiahikes 😍 will be my new family, Trek leader 🧗♂️ will be my new job title & Himalayas 🏔️will be my new address.
Lately, people have been asking me many questions about this, for some it was Why did I take such an odd decision at the peak of IT career?, for some it was What motivated me to take such bold step? So here I am, giving you a sneak peak into my new life for all curious folks 🙂
I always wanted to follow a natural, minimalist, green & active healthy lifestyle. I can get this all nowhere better than in the wilderness. As a trek leader, I will be mostly living in the tents and trekking to the high altitude, I will be able to live a life with simplicity and frugality. I cannot imagine a better lifestyle for the best of my physical & mental health. ⛰️
Nature is the best teacher and also, nature is the best setting in which one can best seek knowledge. I am a knowledge hungry person and I am really looking forward to learn from the nature itself & from other people in the outdoors.💡
IMPACT 🌲 😇
There is not better time than this to realize that we must take big steps to take care of our environment to save ourselves from any more disasters & epidemics. Powerful initiatives at Indiahikes like Green Trails & Sustainability Champions gives me (and everyone) an opportunity to really make a difference. 🌲
Also, I see around a large number of people today are not really happy in today’s fast paced lifestyle. It will be a great opportunity for me to educate trekkers more about nature & natural lifestyle, lead by example & leave a life changing impact on trekkers. 😇
High altitude trekking is favorite adventure & is a perfect Type 2 fun for me. Many might think I am going for trek leading to be able to trek across Himalayas, but the truth is that.. it is work after all. However, here the work adds meaning to my life. Indiahikes is the best value based organizations I ever got to know and its values are aligned perfectly with mine. 🤸♂️
I am super excited to thrive in this new role, new lifestyle & new phase of my life. Wish me luck 🙏 & lets trek together sometime.
