More and more people from all over the word choose to spend their holidays in India – some decades ago it was the western seekers looking for the sacred knowledge of Indian sages and gurus. Now places like Goa are full of tourists seeking nothing but exotic holiday on the sea-shore (acutally I don’t see why do they need to go to India for that, this could be any other famous tourist destination).
But whatever the times are, one things is the same: the aspiration when people pronounce the word INDIA.
Despite the modernisation and fast economical and industrial development of that great country, its magic is very special. There are many other exotic countries and continents in this word, however it is only India that has this kind of a spell over everyone!
Just try to tell someone you are going to Africa (any country), Burma, New Zealand, Italy, Norway, Russia – just any, the reaction of your listener will be any possible but not the same when you say you are going to India… (I was very surprised to see that one of my last posts “Going to India” was such a hit! There was nothing special in there, I guess it was the title..) Obviously people feel there is something very special about the land.
Here I put together my photos that I find in a way express the magnitude of India: The magnitude which is in the deep roots of spirituality and traditions hand in hand with the leopardizing modernity.
