A little about Raam Dev
Serena: Today is his birthday. Happy birthday Raam! This was a perfectly timed post then.
I grew up in a small rural town about forty miles north of Boston, Massachusetts in the United States.
Before I was born, my parents adopted a combination of Buddhist and Hindu teachings and my childhood was very much oriented towards the ancient Indian culture. My name is of Indian origin but I’m not Indian.
In early 2010, I sold nearly all my possessions and left a decade-long career in the IT industry to pursue a childhood dream of traveling the world. I arrived in south India just one month shy of my 28th birthday with $1,500 to my name and one bag on my back.
The plan was to live in a foreign country for six months on a monthly budget of $250 and to give myself time to discover who I was and what I wanted from life. I had no idea how profoundly that trip would change my sense of purpose and direction.
Instead of discovering myself, I discovered an entire planet that needed my help. I met so many people who desperately needed someone who cared, someone who was willing to do whatever it took to help them. I evolved and grew as human being.
“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world but in being able to remake ourselves.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
The following series of posts will better explain the impact this trip had on me from my blog Raam Dev:
- The Entire World Is Knocking At My Door
- The Plan: 6 Months, 3 Countries, and $3,000
- An Inner Earthquake: My First Three Months Living as a Nomad
- Discovering the Real Nepal
- The Lifestyle of a Minimalist Digital Nomad
- Homesick in a Strange and Privileged Land
I’m now focusing on developing a small online business that will allow me to continue traveling while simultaneously creating value and giving back to the global community.
