We all have dreams but somehow they got buried under the piles of responsibilities. Even after some succeed to live their dreams and fails as they can’t pursue them for some reasons that are because of the circumstances. We all have jobs some likes it and some are doing just to earn good money for their and family’s livelihood. A few want to study arts but pursuing engineering as their elders told them but fortunate are those who live their life and do whatever they want to. Right?
Here’s the story of a man which inspires many lives but more to those young hearts who still want to live their life as they wish:
A man named Vijayan once stole some grains from his house and ran away to see new places and travel. He is now 65-years-old living with his wife Mohana who walks daily to his shop with his wife where he serves tea all day long. But this couple went unnoticed by their customers who stopped for drinking tea and eating idly.
This man has a heart of a wanderlust and he pursues it anyway. Now we call this man a wanderlust soul, not those who call themselves wanderers just by having a dream and not pursuing it.
Vijayan has a rule throughout his life that he saves Rs.300 every day which his wife Mohana keeps safely inside a drawer. This money saving is what they use for traveling around the globe. Unbelievable, right? He said, “I save rupees 300 a day for our tickets and spend just 10 dollars or less on picking up some tiny souvenirs from the places of visit. We don’t spend anything more.”
This tea seller couple has traveled to 16 different countries in all these years. His passion is alive all these years just because of his wife Mohana even after the responsibilities dogged him. Vijayan said, “My wife had never traveled beyond Ernakulam until she was married. In all these years, together we have traveled to the UK, Austria, Egypt, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, Singapore, UAE and so on.”
“I can’t travel without her, I will be happy only when she is around,” said Vijayan.
Have a look at their some of the pictures:
This picture reminds of the YJHD’s bunny aka Kabir played by Ranbir Kapoor who gives many of the youngsters a dream of traveling and enjoying one’s work. Just understand your own craziness towards something and things will come to your way if you honestly work for them like Vijayan and Mohana.
