Devapriya Roy and Saurav Jha have managed to raise quite a few eyebrows. Past mid-twenties, they decided to quit their jobs, as an editor and energy consultant respectively, to travel across India. Nothing unusual? But on a Rs 500 a day budget? That is an extraoridnary journey — “on a very, very, tight budget,” they say in unison. The duo is behind the Heat and Dust Project, a one-of-its-kind “transformational journey through India” at what Jha calls “breakneck, hurtling speed.” As part of the project, the duo is also chronicling their experiences in the form of travelogues.
