Jagriti Yatra | The D Day

It wasn’t easy to wake up earlier after a tiring day like yesterday. We got ready and reached the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS). It’s a lovely green campus in the busy concrete Mumbai.

It’s really exciting to meet many of the Yatris, whom I had only interacted via Facebook or Twitter. Happy that few recognized me.

We had our induction session post registration. The best part of it is dancing for the Yatra Geet (Yatra Song) which was choreographed by famous kathak dancer Gowri Tripathi. The steps are easy and expressive and every one of us could repeat it with sync. Wow what an energy inside the auditorium while it’s been done.

Then came the official Inaugural session of Jagriti Yatra 2014. It was filled with inspiring talks and awesome kathak dance performances.

One more thing that caught our eyes are the few sketches which are being sketched by couple of Yatris from London, simultaneously while the speeches were going on. They made those sketches based on the key points from the speeches. #WOW

After the flag off ceremony, we all were transported to Lokmanya Tilak Terminus to board the train.

As there was a delay in train arrival, we spent our time on the platforms. It was fun though, Interacting with fellow Yatris, celebrating Christmas running around the platform and all those.

At last the train arrived around 3am and we departed the station around 4.30 am for an awesome journey ahead.
