To travel is to to discover one’s inner self for this week’s. | Traveller of the Week: Gursimran Basra

Gursimran Basra is a full-time Senior Business Analyst working with EXL Service in Noida for 3 years now. He has a passion for travelling and clicking photographs which he believes will eventually become his memories in the future.

 

During his post graduation at BIT Mesra in Ranchi, a turning point in his life which opened his eyes which ultimately motivated him to travel. ‘The beauty of the campus aroused the creative side of mine which ultimately turned into travelling’, he says.

It led to frequent trips to Kolkata from which is about 9 hours of journey from Ranchi.

 

Gursimran prefers to travel solo. He has done a number of trips which include his latest trip to Bhutan in December for 6 days.

He does not despise group travels. Meeting new people is interesting as well as a helps in learning a lot about life Basra says.

 

A part-time traveller, he works full-time for Healthcare Insurance Domain which ultimately makes him a planned traveller. He says a lot of planning is involved!

 

 

According to Gursimran, his 5 must-visit places are Kolkata, Kerala, Banaras, Pushkar and Darjeeling which are quite accessible to people looking for travelling in the country itself.

 

His 4 must-haves are to be well noted as well which includes a power bank, a good camera phone, earphones or headphones and slippers for comfortable travels.

 

Time devoted to his heart is what Gursimran Basra enjoys the most whilst travelling! He loves indulging in the surroundings, loves to explore the culture as well as the people and others places at the location.

 

The travel lover has travelled to 14 states so far and 3 countries which include Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Singapore. Sri Lanka to be the most loved out of the three!

 

 

 

A story from Pushkar, Rajasthan is where this incident happened at. Gursimran met a boy named Sangeet who belongs to a family who travels to Pushkar every year during the ‘mela’ to sell their Camels. The traveller adds, he is still in touch with Sangeet for 3 years now! To see him grow up is a wonderful feeling to the traveller. He says, the boy is like family now!

 

One life lesson the traveller has learnt till now is that, ‘That you belong to yourself. All you do is for your heart.’

No matter one does in life, one should always get time for oneself to identify one’s inner self and understand one’s, own heart!
