Ongoing Odyssey

Odysseus was a very simply choice.

Odysseus travelled, either driven by storms or by his will to discover strange and wonderful lands where he met all sorts of people. Though I never met a Cyclops, I too have travelled to wonderful places across the length and breadth of Pakistan.

The Odyssey lasted twenty years, mine is still ongoing – though it is not in one stretch and there is no danger of returning home and not being recognized by anyone.

It was Odysseus’ spirit of adventure that made me adopt him name.

The choice of name Odysseus was also the irrepressible urge to see my world. Odysseus had it, and I follow suit.
