Lose yourself to find yourself. A travelogue of our 6 month journey through India.
I’ve got the flu/fever virus that is doing the rounds of Omkareshwar and Sanawad. I decided to do some Narmada river therapy on myself, and met three very happy Saddhus whilst down at the ghats, one of whom was 97 years old. He is the only OAP I’ve come across with dreads and he bathes religiously in the Narmada twice every day (starting at 4am, which I was suitably impressed by as it’s somewhat fresh at that time in the morning). The lifestyle must work because he seemed very fit for someone of that age. We went to Raju’s to have thali this evening – his wife made us the tastiest meal we’ve had since our arrival in India. They are a lovely family, always smiling - makes me feel good about the human race to meet people like them.
