In this column we also share the travelogue on Uttarakhand. Recently Sudipto has visited Uttarakhand and he shares some of the snaps and his memories.  He writes about Mohan Cafe of Kasardevi.

It’s so fascinating to see someone from no where to take small steps and finally setting up his own enterprise that has created employment not only for him but also for 10-15 other people in a place where sustenance of life is itself a very hard thing. Had Mohan not been an entrepreneur he would have been one of the million tea stall owners who struggle through out their lives to meet their ends. His simple ideas and great dreams made him go ahead of his peers. His conviction and satisfaction show in his face. It was a great humbling experience for me.
