Renuka is 24 years old, elder of the two siblings. Her sister, Lalitha is two years younger. Both are intelligent from school but Renuka was disinterested in studies. As a child she was always inquisitive with questions on topics that interested her. Her topics of interest have always been geography and travel. She would ask endless questions on the subject, browse books and internet to find answers. She did her BA and then MA both in Geography.
Both, Renuka and Lalitha have completed their studies. Lalitha has landed in a decent job, has also found a soulmate with whom she wants to settle down. Her parents have approved it and are looking forward to their marriage soon.
Renuka on the other hand has neither managed to get a job nor is interested to look for one. She has made up her mind to lead a nomadic life. She wishes to travel and see the world, backpacking her way from place to place and country to country, earning whatever she needs to survive as she goes along.
During one such journey she met Raj, a crazy guy who shares the same dream as Renuka. He’s of the same age as of hers and they both wish to travel the world together. They both like each other and Renuka’s mind has even started working on a thought of leading a life with Raj forever.
Lalitha is always encouraging her sister and has pledged all her support including fighting with their parents if required.
Interesting isn’t it? Life gives you many choices. Some are good, some ugly, some extremely beautiful, some little bitter. Choose your life wisely. You have one life to live, make the best use of it. Write to STHREEJEEVAN if you have such interesting stories.
