“I am Nitin.


I am 24, and I run a backpackers’ hostel in the North Indian town of Rishikesh right next to the beautiful Ganges. I plan to open a chain of hostels, calling them ‘Namaste Backpacker’.

My purpose in life is to do my karma, to help people, and that is why I enjoy providing my services to people. I believe that everyone has a different purpose in life.

To me, to be truly content you must first identify the thing you really enjoy, or are passionate about, and then devote yourself to that. Life should not be about hard work only – ideally you should find happiness or adventure in what you work hard at.

And then you will feel a sense of purpose.”
