Started learning how to drive a manual gear motorcycle today. I’ll be on the road in a week.
you pretty much don’t need a license to drive in Raigarh..
finished week one of training my army recruits. they stuck through all the workouts. my training partner was telling me that these boys are from rural India and they often feel as though everything they do has to be for their livelihood and making money for their families. just seeing them work hard makes me believe that they recognize their own potential and they’re willing to make that longterm investment. it’s just a reminder that everyones dreams are valid. you just have to believe in them..
i take for granted that i can get coconut oil for 3 dollars here
All of the boys I train don’t know english very well so I have to buff up on my Hindi. I’m hoping to make them wish they never signed up, maybe get some tears, but I’m excited
i’m sitting here at home baking bread so i can eat the entire loaf and i get news that i have to train 9 military prospects for a month starting from today. i can’t win.
