Every day I dream of going to India.
Actually I was there two months ago. But I want more! That country is like a magnet, no way to forget about it… People say either you love India or you can not stand it, no middle state is known.
I am idealistic enough to deify India, it is true. But being someone very practical on the other hand I find 1000 and one reasons to benefit from getting to India as often as possible.
So what is it about? Why is India so attractive to me?
It feels like being in a fairy tale: not only those scents, colors, sounds… It is all magic and very different from my European reality.
The people are so incredibly sweet: their gestures, the way they speak and move their head approving something – it seems to me the best way to show the enjoyment! Immediately I get under the spell of Indian charm and start doing it myself: the sweetness flows into my being like a divine nectar… It feels so comfortable! – but unfortunately does not work for me when I am in Europe.
When in India I don’t think of food, obviously there is not that such effort needed to the body to survive there and I forget to eat. Then I have to force myself in order not to fade away. But one can come so close to feeling oneself more a spirit than a body!
India is a feast for the eyes anyway, but one more thing which I find very special is numerous shops for children-wear! It strokes a western mind as you will never see it on the shopping streets of Europe. We just don’t have that many children, it`s clear – whom to sell all these pretty little togs? But the sight of such shops in
India just melts my heart.
The best thing about India is that this place makes me thoughtless aware. Touching the Indian ground at Mumbai airport has an impact comparable to a good mediation and I have to force myself to think when necessary. Such a blissful state! I just go with the flow and the things just happen: at the right time I get to the right place, meet the right people. I just dissolve in that melon-taste reality…
These are only 5 reasons out of 1000, remember? One by one I will open all of them to you, my dear friends!
