Know Your Buddy – Devyani Mehta

We all go through that period where we are mocked for some shortcoming of ours. I was no exception. Being a little less tall, I was always picked on for not being able to do the tough things normal people would usually do !

After a while when the mocking got a little too serious and aggravated my anger, I decided to vent out my anger in a more positive way.
I went on my first trek to panchalingeshwar where I was challenging myself with people who were much more built and tall. Trekking, river crossing, living in tents Β ,river rafting, rock climbing, made me cherish the very small things in life, one of them being myself πŸ™‚ I began finding happiness in the places I visited, the different people I met and the memories I made.
Going on treks to shankarpur, uttarey and climbing various mountains, living in unbearably cold temperatures just made me realise that my height was inversely proportional to my level of toughness.
I have trekked a total of 96kms and achieved the bronze standard. I hope we all can channelize our so called shortcomings in a way to just challenge ourselves and allow it to surprise us πŸ™‚image1-2.JPG
