"Solo travel," they say, "is something everyone MUST do in their lives." But how open are we to letting our girls and women travel alone?
“Solo travel,” they say, “is something everyone MUST do in their lives.” But how open are we to letting our girls and women travel alone?
“Traveling alone enlightens,
Brightens minds, heightens senses,
It’s a better bet than that Goa plan.”
When he goes, its all of that and more,
But does she go? Does she even want to go?
“I’d rather go with friends”, “I won’t like it”
Are heard far more than a yes with a smile
Is it her?
Or is it us? Us, the rest?
Telling her she’s better off home,
Better off hanging out with friends,
Better off staying in her comfort zone
Stepping out could cause chaos
Could let her stay unchecked,
We don’t want any trouble
(well, trouble, danger or rape)
But remember, a step out takes you closer to places
Places on the outside, places on the inside
On a hill where the sun comes bright
Her shining wings can illuminate the world
Even enlighten all of us
All the world at her feet, if only we let her go
She could use the solace, we could use the lesson.

There is no denial of the fact that this initiation is not required on the part of the groom thereby formally denoting the end of the filial ties with the daughter as it was popularly instructed to the bride during the Vidai ceremonies:
"I chose to go out into the remote, wild, unknown, and make it home," says entrepreneur Kiranjeet Ahluwalia Chaturvedi, who owns Birdsong & Beyond.
The story of my mountain home Birdsong & Beyond started taking shape in 2009, on the internet, the way many stories do these days.
My childhood fascination for a life in the Himalayas led to an internship with a central Himalayan NGO instead of a much prized corporate assignment. But when they offered me a full-time job, I refused. I was overcome by fear and a lack of confidence.
My other longings pulled me away – the longing to fit in, to earn validation from others. By my mid-30s, with all the trappings of a middle-class urban life in place, the call of the snows couldn’t be ignored anymore. So I got to work on it with clearer intentions and a stronger sense of what I needed for myself, and why.
