Donkey Route- In the ever-evolving saga of global migration, enter the bizarre world of the 'Donkey Travelers'—Indians from Haryana, Punjab, and Uttar Pradesh.

Their journey, as ridiculous as it sounds, involves traversing continents, facing thugs, and surviving on biscuits.

Why 'donkey'? Well, it's not about luxurious flights; it's about hopping like donkeys from one place to another.

The Hopping Odyssey

Donkey Dreams and Biscuit Diets

Driven by the illusion of the American dream, individuals sell their farms, pay hefty sums to dubious agents (cue the donkers), and munch on biscuits for a week straight.

Thugs, Snakes, and Barefoot Trekking

Crossing jungles with venomous creatures, thugs robbing you of everything, and trekking barefoot in the snow.

The donkey route is no nature hike. It's a perilous journey where survival is an achievement.

In the donkey route, competition among groups escalates. More people mean a higher chance of getting caught.
Sleepless nights aren't just from hunger; there's fear of nocturnal venomous attacks.

Behind the Scenes of 'Donkeying'

Meet the elusive 'donker' agents, the puppet masters of this absurd journey.

They operate in secrecy, training hopeful migrants in a crash course of a few foreign words, local currencies, and survival tactics.

Risk, Hotels, and Silence:

The 'donkers' plan meticulously, with special hotels strategically placed along the route. These hotels, shrouded in secrecy, accommodate migrants in hushed dormitories with strict rules.

Payments, Risks, and Gambles:

Payment instalments are made as the journey progresses, and the risks are colossal.
From running through jungles to braving the sea, it’s a game of chance where the dream is as big as the risks involved.

The Bizarre Side of 'Donkey Dreams'

The 'dunki' dream has gripped Haryana so tight that villages are left with the elderly while the youth chase dreams across borders.

Yet, the 'dunki' dream persists, leaving families in despair and elders surrounded by echoes of lost laughter.

The Absurd Reality of the 'Donkey Route':

As we unravel the 'donkey route,' the absurdity of this journey is undeniable. The allure of the American dream pulls individuals into a web of risks, deception, and shattered hopes. Behind the bizarre adventures lie lives forever changed, families torn, and dreams chased against all odds
