Thanks a lot Sally for nominating me for the award. Its always a pleasure and a privilege to have such readers and followers for my writings, which keeps me motivated to put my best.
1. Can you tell us about yourself in 100 words or less?
“I’m me, nothing more nothing less…”My name is Banasmita and I’ve been traveling since I was a kid. Growing up in North East and North zone…..and as my dad was in Indian Army, Travelling was something that became a part of my life.
The very first journey of my life which I still remember was a Journey from Punjab to Agartala, Tripura. Every time I travel I discover myself with lots of answers to what I want from life and many unanswered questions about what i got from life. And I decide to travel. I decide to seek answers of my questions and to discover a life that probably i have never met before and the LEARN began.
2. Can you tell us more about your blog in 100 words of less that would encourage people to follow you?
“Some moments we experience while travelling end up blowing us away, in ways we would never have expected. They stay with us forever, and years later we still smile at the fond memories.” So many things come up in life and few things we might have experienced more than once and few remained as a fantasy. Exploring life, exploring self and exploring the beautiful world at the same time is only possible when we travel. We get an opportunity to learn many things which might not have earned from formal education. Different cultures, traditions, rituals, belief’s, people, ideologies, perceptions and so many things which will make us realize that what we know is just a drop in the ocean. My writings in this blog are experiences of the people I met, their greatest fears and fantasies and sometimes my own experiences. I believe life teaches us many things in life day in , day out. Each and every minute, we get an opportunity to learn and discover life and always doesn’t and cannot happen in a classroom. Hence I named it as “Not All Classrooms Have Four Walls.
3. What is the strongest memory from your childhood?
” I treat memories as the one’s where I have been myself, the moments I can revisit whenever I wish. There isn’t a memory like strong and weak, if anything has become a page in the book my life it’s a memory.”
4. Can you tell us more about where you live and why you call it home?
” I Live in a castle of my dream with a crown of emotions, My dreams are my home where I can be what I want to be, where I can fly high in the sky , I can breathe under the water, jump from one star to another… a fairyland where I’m a Fairy Queen is my Home.”
5. Do you have someone in your family that is your role model?
” A role model is the one from whom we get inspired and from whom we learn to be a better Human being”. When it comes to be a better person , I don’t want to limit it to my family. Every person I meet and I met is my Role model. I believe each and every person is special in their own ways . If we can see the positive side of a person, we get inspired by their special qualities.
