We met a lot of wise men before bringing to you our fresh and delicious aloe vera beverages. Some were unrealistic in their advices, some cliched and some extremely boring. One of them even asked us to ditch the idea completely. But while most of them left us unimpressed, there was one that left us wonderstruck. The young monk.
Young Monk was different from the many other monks that we had known. He was young, witty, awfully sarcastic and had just the right amount of quirk that we had been looking for. The way he spoke and behaved was chicer and more urban than any of us can ever be. Heck, he was catching up on a TV show when we first met him. He was so modern that our first impression of him was that he just took up monk-ship because his father asked him to. Don’t blame us, we’re a team of engineers after all. But boy were we wrong!
He spoke of all those things that we usually run away from – health, nutrition, fruits, nature, better choices and what not. Maybe it was in his way of putting it across that got us hooked. The Young Monk was traditional in his views and yet very contemporary in his ways. The Young Monk not only has the perfect balance of wisdom and style, but is also a trustworthy friend who motivates us to do better every day. “Why the scooter”, we asked him one day while seating below the banyan tree in our luxury cars, of course. “Because some things are better left unchanged.” And the swag with which he said it, we just knew he was our tribe for the good. The rest as they say, is history!
