I am proud to be an Indian even though it is not fashionable to claim to be one in modern world and especially on a foreign shore. It is definitely not acceptable in the world of elites and tycoons of NRI fraternity. I still want to defy the world when it comes to the power of this soil, love of people, food from the Indian kitchen, depth of relationships, respect for our parents, love for spouses, respect for customs and last but not the least- our search for God in anything and everything.
I have a strong desire to explore every part of India and find out what makes us different from the rest of the world. Hence I consciously plan my trip to a new location every time I go to India ( I get those jinks in my feet to move and the travel bug bites me) I head straight to India! I have extensively travelled within Eastern states like Gujarat, Maharashra, Goa, Himachal Pradesh and part of Karnataka, Punjab, Chattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. It is not still not even 40% of India.
Let me share my experiences of the places I have visited and how each time, I was elevated by the mystic power of the people and places.
