The enquiries on plural facets of Education took him on an explorative path, and one thing following the other and right things happening at the right points of time, he found his alliance with Travellers' University. He was on a 4 months journey across India, meeting with people and organizations working on Education reform and Sustainability, trying to understand the different philosophies and realities they operated in. The quest was to decode the underlying ideas of 'Education' and 'Development' in today's context.
During the journey, he met many a people and learned about diverse experiments in the streams of his enquiry. Post his yatra, he found synergy in building on the idea of Travellers’ University and decided to be a Co-creator.
