Life isn’t easy for anyone, but for the existentialists, it’s a tad bit harder. For them, the burden of staying alive is raised owing to a sense of banality and futility of human existence. No blame attached to evolution for giving us consciousness, but we did outrun nature towards our doom. At age 23, Juan understood that there is no inherent meaning of life and craving for one last drug-induced high, he decides to commit suicide by jumping off the cliff at Kheerganga in Manali. This way he intends to end his life with a meaning and hopes his generation, all depressed and directionless individuals, can follow suit. But can the people he meets on the way make him change his fate?
Akul Sharma is an armchair philosopher, mystic thinker, and a human being trying to figure out the purpose of existence. Fond of things angelic and psychedelic, he believes there’s no better muse than angst. As part of the system, he plies his trade as a copywriter. His life goal is to stare so long into the abyss that it never stares back. In the meantime, he’s just watching the wheels go round and round, he really loves to watch them roll.
