Lose yourself to find yourself. A travelogue of our 6 month journey through India.
The first day of 2014 and what better way to spend it than walking about the Sri Meenakshi temple in the small hours of the morning. There was a queue for Darshan that stretched from the centre of the temple and spiralled right around the complex (which made for thousands of people in the line). Indians really are quite amazing. They must have been queuing from the 4am opening time. Talk about devotion.... Despite hours of queuing the mood amongst everyone was light, friendly and happy. They were totally stoked to be there. Most Westerners would be lying in bed with a hangover from the night before, and thinking about the January sales. I think it is impossible to break India’s culture, no matter how much influence or pressure there is from the West. That makes me feel happy. As Aruna mentioned to us, India is the spiritual heart of the world. If India falls, so will the world. I reckon she’s right. Big blessings to all Indian massive and crew ;)
