Growing together at 500 : A Return Gift

Big hello,

To each one of you, fellow bloggers. It’s not even two complete months since i am writing continuously on ROAD TO NARA; and to see, to touch this milestone of having 500 close knit friends, comes as the most fulfilling feeling. Probably one of the happiest decisions i made to make it all public in these serious Covid Times.

Each and every day has been overwhelming with the amount of comments, likes, stories that you expressed and poured out your love on the blog, through various questions, views, queries, praises, some beautiful surprises in mails that i have got and few friends that i have found on this journey. I am not only thankful but owe this day to you all.

Knowing that it is only a start. And that the family should only grow.

Few friends here suggested that ROAD TO NARA must have a Facebook presence outside of WordPress dedicated to the blog. So, here i thought of a declaration.

Whomsoever reads this, you are heartily welcome to join on this culture filled, rural and magical journey here on Facebook at Road to Nara

Nothing would give me more happiness to have you here at Road to Nara

A giveaway : Gift

And since every celebration comes with sharing, if not a cake; I would like to extend this giveaway feature available for all the first 500 followers and to the coming 500 till we reach 1000 followers here at the Road to Nara.

What is it ?

Since Road to Nara recently created FacebookInstagram  and Twitter pages. You have to first like/follow the pages and Once done, you can choose any image of your liking that you find on the blog or on my Instagram page, send a copy of it on my mail and you will get back a high resolution file of it; that you may use on your blog or website, for outdoor, travel or any other purposes for free.

While giving due credit. 

If you think it’ll be useful for you or you will be happy to come along on this road, I am happy to welcome you all.

Hi, I am Narayan Kaudinya. And i welcome you on this journey, the Road to Nara ! I am an Ethnographer and a practicing Indologist. I did my masters in History and further learnt Sanskrit, Yoga and Nerve-therapy. At 24, pushing most academic sounding, office sitting works away, i felt compelled to know and understand the world and my country, Bharat/India. I travelled, and as it happened i took up teaching in Kashmir and further up in the remote villages of Baltistan in the foothills of Karakoram Ranges. For around three years and many states later there came a time when i felt that it was only while teaching i learnt how to laugh, to see, feel, breathe, love and cry -with children, and mostly resource-less parents in the harshest-freezing border conditions. I write, and work as a documentary photographer and Filmmaker, with numerous published, exhibited and some awarded stories. In my travels and life i have let nature lead me, the divine mother, and as a Yogin, my resolve here is to share my experiences and thoughts as honestly, and through them to blossom in everyone the power and possibility in pursuing your breath, that you seek your true nature with courage and curiosity. Here, on this road i will share my spirit, my love for nature, the elements of life that are us. And in doing so, i'll be happy to see you along.


    • 🙂 nothing more lovelier an experience than being here for past few months; reading, writing and connecting with all so many beautiful people. Truly a collective sorts moving forward.
