CHENNAI: The thirst for travelling echoed among an enthusiastic motley crowd at the second episode of Thara Ticket’s. Saranya Sreenevasan, the brainchild of the open mic has already packed for the next expedition. “Thara ticket means ‘floor ticket’ in Tamil and is called so because people do not want to invest money on travelling. The event is for like-minded people to connect, share their life-changing stories and to get rid of their inhibitions,” said Saranya, who was once a corporate employee.

Around 25 people attended the event. Non-travellers could get inspired and explore travelling, either as a hobby or a profession. There was also an ice-breaking session, where every participant spoke about their favourite destination and a memory attached to it.The highlight of the session was the creative medium that each participant chose to share their stories like storytelling, astro photography, poetry and video documentaries. Saranya was the first to share the lessons of her first solo trip.

“It is better to know the history of the place before you reach the destination. While travelling, you will also meet people from different walks of life with unique perspectives. It is the diversity that brings us all together. Travelling can also inspire you to contribute for the society,” she said. 

One of the participants from the previous event travelled to Hampi after attending the inspiring session. Every participant who spoke had a different approach, goal and philosophy. Some were adrenaline junkies, who believed in miracles while some others were peace seekers. While some travelled for self-discovery and realisation, the others used it as a medium of catharsis. Thara Ticket has a bigger event lined up for next month. The idea is to spread the travel stories and inspire people.
