The RACE is real. We are all chasing something that we 'think' will make us and everyone happy. And in this chase, we forget the most important component of happiness-Ourselves. Just ask yourself, when was the last time you did something that made you truly feel good? How far have you gone ahead in identifying your purpose and aspire to achieve it? Or, the simplest question of all-Do you know yourself Inside Out? It was time to look within and introspect. Self Discovery Trail promised to answer all your queries. We took participants on a journey to identify their true potential with the theme of "discover a new "YOU" within yourself". At the end of this trail, all the answers fit together and formed a bigger, beautiful picture.
Here are the list of experiences you'll get to live on the trail
