A journey that started in Bombay and explored the south and north of the wondrous land of India culminated in the capital, Delhi. Along the way, there were many small and big moments that will be embedded in our minds and hearts. From the lush terrain of Kerala to the barren beauty of
Ladakh, from the Catholic influence in Goa to the Buddhist Tibetan communities in
Himachal, from the banana-leaf meals of the south to the butter-laden meals of the north,
from the sixteen-hour train journey to the stroll on the double-humped camels, from the suit sellers to the fruit sellers, from the mosques to the temples, from one city to the other, from one state to the other, from one region to the next, we had managed to experience what many don't in a lifetime.
India has its share of problems: illiteracy,
overpopulation, corruption, crime, and extreme poverty. Among the chaos and cacophony, it is hard to find the peace, the beauty, the bliss, the magic, and the love that is uniquely Indian. Many are enchanted by this ancient land and are drawn to its color and craze. People like you and me explore its depths and, while doing so, discover a little bit more about life and how to deal with it a smile at a time.
Each and every human being has their share of unique challenges that they face during their lifetime. Contrary to popular belief,
those that appear content and thankful are not without their slice of troubles. It is attitudes and perspectives that turn even the harshest realities into minor glitches in the marathon that is life.
India, its people, its customs, and its quirks have an important lesson for all. It is a lesson that one must seek and have a curiosity for.
The path of existence is not without its share of treacherous cliffs and demons, but there is one truth that makes it exciting and beautiful, and that is,
happiness is simple. And
India and its people are a breathing, living example of that truth!
