In Search of Another Life
“Remember! We all have that uncomfortableness in us, urging us to walk away; away in search of another life; away in search of things mightier than us, only to make us realize that these mightier things dwell in ourselves, not in society.

This is the story of finding freedom, of breaking shackles, and of how life experiences are far beyond enriching and educating. This is about a fourteen-year-old boy, inspired by Tolstoy and Twain, staggering in search of another life. Leaving a miserable life full of unanswered questions and loneliness, an orphan begins a journey. A journey traversing through the hilly terrains of Pachmarhi - the Queen of the Satpura, wherein a child gets lost and finds himself as a grown human
