This is my first blog post in my life, I would like to apologize for any shortcoming and mistake. It is a bit difficult to tell everything in this post.
It can be like when there is a hint that the finger tries to tell everything about the moon, but the reality of the moon can be found only by going to the moon.
First Trek with CCS:
Right after I turned 12, it was my first hiking job with CCS.
At that time I thought this is a good opportunity for me to practice English. But, what I didn’t know is that I am getting knowledge of many other ways apart from just learning the language. I have learned to think more logical & scientifically, that more development is not good for humans, what angling is, etc.

I have met many CCS school children here who are very fearless and courageous and intelligent. Helping people without knowing language, Ready to take any risk in future.
But I am also sorry to say that many people are suffering from some disease or allergies which is the reverse of our village. I didn’t know that allergies or depression existed before, as they do not happen in Agora.
I have tried to understand why and I think that along with mental work, physical work is also necessary. That is what keeps us so healthy and avoids the things that I have learned happen in America.
Friends & Relationship:
Aaron Alter is the best contributor to this, he has shown and continues to be a very good traveler and teacher. He has worked to understand this place very well, he has built a better relationship with the people here, which makes it easier for the CCS school and the villagers to mingle with each other.
It’s easy to be a learner, not a teacher:
I really enjoy working with this group of CCS school every year, but as a learner. And I feel very fortunate that I am getting to learn from the best teacher in the world, experience, and to be with the learners.
It is always very difficult to say goodbye. But happiness comes from the fact that we met the best person.
Thank you Mr. Alter, Mr. Suman ji, Mr. Kola ji, Ms. Mollie Haley ji, Ms. Gidget and all the CCS kids and Guruji, who are helping me become a better person.
Miss you all 🙏🏼
