And the journey begins with

Colourful Notions

The RoadTrippers 1.0

Would you give up your high-paying job and comfortable personal life to drive ten thousand kilometers across India? Just for fun!

Three twenty-somethings dare to do just that! While the two guys take turns to drive, the girl gives voice-over as they record their entire journey on a handycam.

Ab, Sasha and Unnati are ordinary youngsters, rendered special by the feat they accomplish. As they recount their adventures, I crave to live their journey all the more. They look at each other with a glint in their eyes, as if refurbishing those memories, as they narrate their spooky time at Bhangarh Fort, strange escapades at Wagah Border and Sundarbans, car breakdowns, wild animals, near-death experiences and highway robbers! It's nothing less than crazy.

I doubted if I'd ever have the gumption to create such experiences. So I did the next best thing - I penned a book about them, and their roadtrip.

Colorful Notions is a journey of three young hearts on the Indian terrain and into the inner recesses of their souls, giving a new perspective to relationships, love and life.

  • RoadTrippers : An extraordinary expedition

    My best friend dared me, Can you drive 10,000 km given that you brag about your love for driving all the time? I said yes immediately. Then he told me about these 3 young 25-something who actually quit their jobs, their personal lives and boarded across a car and went about it. They were 2 boys and 1 girl. The boys alternated driving turns while the girl gave voice-over as they recorded their entire journey on a handy cam.

About Mohit Goyal
The Author

I was born on 29th September 1983. Being born to a household of people who don't have too many resources but a lot of desire, ingrained hunger in me too.

Fortunately, the love I found (pretty early, must be 15 or 16) was for books and a penchant for writing. Basically as a teenager, I concluded writing as a non-existent career option, not one where you can churn money. I kept writing nevertheless, albeit in form of some short stories here and there or an odd article.

After finishing Bachelors in Business, I ventured out on my own than doing a job (born to an entrepreneur father) and I thought I did pretty well at it. But somehow didn't love it whole-heartedly. To dig deeper into life, went to London and enrolled for a Masters in logistics from Cranfield University. The intention was to take a break, and see what more life has to offer.

Within a few years, I got a chance to run my international logistics business in several Asian countries and collaborated with some of the best minds of trade. But love was still not there. It is said that you can't fake it.

Somewhere in between; I fell for the missus, got married and became a father too. Perhaps it deserves a book in itself (fatherhood! And how men face its undocumented brunt!)

In 2015, I finally took the plunge of typing out my first book. I'd say typing it out, because the stories were always there (in my mind). It required a crafty effort to bring them out in a way that it entertains and inspire readers.

In the middle of it, I realized that the genre is eternal. Travel is as synonymous of life, and as reflective of its ups and downs as anything could be! Even before I could finish it, I had a part II and a part III brewing in my mind, just like earlier.

So I decided to pursue it committedly for life.

This time I know I will. Because this time, it is out of real love.

PS: I am not quitting my job for this endeavor. It is the one that continues to pay my bills. But writing books is like wife now, one may go out to work for the whole day, but returns to wife at home in evening.
