Some brilliant entrepreneurs, people from the best of colleges, best of organizations were part of the journey. It was networking of the next level. The best part was the journey pushed us out of our comfort zone, broke our monotonous life and inspired us to work harder.

My ideas about empathy, importance of listening and the joy of connecting with others were reinforced throughout the Yatra. It created an awareness in me, about age-old traditions like Halma, and the power of such elements to present workable models of participative management for the administrative machinery.

Throughout the program my connection with each person and empathy was something that I’ve never had before. From the point of a management student, all the discussions, interactions, questioning & observations will add to your learning.

Being a civil services aspirant, I was really excited about witnessing such a huge movement being organized. It has been a huge learning curve for me. It is said that a journey of thousand miles starts with a single step. I feel that this Halma Yatra with ‘Team Empathy Connects’ has been my first step.

Empathy Connects will let you discover the unknown, obscure places. The place and culture which you will not find in google. I got to know about more about rural India and how they are happily and sustain-ably fighting with their challenges. Yatra has broaden my perspective and knowledge. I will highly recommend this to the one who has inclination towards rural development and social change.

It is just seemingly impossible to come out of the trip we went through. Such a learning exercise to know that how society as a whole can function in a much better way if we all unite to work towards a common motive with cooperation, coordination and discipline. Each Yatri possessed commendable experiences, a beautiful and innocent heart and smile on face.
