Seeing Clearly in 2020

I’ll only use that 2020 riff once. But it was on-point enough to have been worth waiting for.

For most of us, 2020 is going to be a turning point. Because it’s another chance to live tomorrow over again. A chance to reset, to decide what’s important and what’s worth working for.

Not a New Year’s resolution, because all those resolves; and I ll tell you that all of them have already been attained. Yet there is something akin to stepping up, has to be done as there ought to be a result this year cause it was never this how it happened.

So To earn it and pen it before you all and before the clock strikes 12, again. Here are they.

1. To be flexible to twist as much and yet be the strongest : I can be called as an embodiment of a chewing gum. The Capital is all it’s going to take from here.

It is lovely to learn about not breaking down but moving however so slowly that you could count the frogs on a rainy day in the pond.

2. Shedding silence only to create value. When you know silence is most valued ; this is all about going it all the way to finish the capital and few other things. Collecting all previous stories into one folder.

4. Apart from Singsong, the year will mark completion of two long term photo projects based in Kashmir and Delhi respectively.

5. After a long time I can see that I am serious about writing online and here marks my first official year. So first six months I am going to try to be consistent and from here onwards in July I will seek to persist and advertise, it may happen much before that.

So the re-development of the web work and blog all over again.

Sure, that is meta, but it beats the alternative. To not see. To simply accept. To not choose. To obediently follow instead.

A chance to see more clearly and even more important, to learn to trust yourself enough to change things for the better. A bit faster.

To find out more about what I will be up to.

This year would mark my involvement with Road to Nara more than ever. For the stories to be seen from the eyes of the seer, travelling along the rivers in rural India.

The future has a way of showing up whether we ask for it or not, and it pays to be ready for it.

I hope we grow together as each week passes by.

Hello, My name is Narayan. I am a teacher and an Ethnographer. After college i opted for teaching in far away villages of the Himalayas and later in Central rural India. And gradually as I wandered along the local streams and rivers, unending fields i learnt not only about myself but India and what is it to be Indian, living with various families throughout India. And to tell you, there is nothing more than a smile and an effort to make their children lives better that makes them happy. I have been independently working as a writer, photographer and filmmaker. For past many years I have been travelling the Indian subcontinent teaching and extensively documenting rural and her communities. Learning and understanding culture, communication and various ways of human mind and body. I am a student of History and did my masters in it. And later studied Sanskrit. When you realise the alignment of your spirit with the world around you, winds take you to places in the Himalayas, where you learn the ancient Yogic way of nerve healing, I can't really know myself but since then all the above mentioned things altogether has helped me generously to enter homes for shelter and food in the night. I come back to Delhi. Here mother and I run a small school for children.
