To travel is to live.It brings us closer to ourselves.It's all about the feeling of teetering in the unknown.

Ankur Thakuria, an embodiment of passion, is an inspiration to millions of young minds around the world. First off, he is an educator at the world's largest Anti-Drug organisation. He's also the holder of a fellowship at 'Cairos Society' and 'Tech for India'. He started in 2012 and is now working on his second venture with a whooping amount of $1.36 million as seed fund! What makes him more exceptional and noteworthy is that he is just about 23 years old. Talk about being a prodigy. He was an official government youth diplomat for the G20 Summit,2011 in Cannes, selected by the French organising presidency among seven other youth diplomats. What made this more special? He was the only one from Asia. When it comes to travelling, Mr. Thakuria has already been to 44 different countries. Getting to know languages, cultures and different people has always been his passion.
