I’ve attached a year to this post because the fact is, this enigmatic country will continue to be an aesthetic feature in this blog going forward, hence the need to confine this update as discoveries of 2014. By this time I had already experienced India to some extent, having lived in Delhi for almost a year and having visited bits and pieces of Rajasthan and Calcutta. Still, with India every state is almost like a new country and every visit to the same place brings brand new realisations. The following snaps are of our stay in Mumbai, Dehradun, Pune and Lonavla.
India is incredible. I haven’t even begun to fully understand her and I doubt anyone has. It’s one of those countries where you get a neck ache from constant gawking at the cacophony of humanity and can’t stop wanting to photograph everything you see be it about human behaviour (my lasting memory is of an entire family with pet dog perched on one moped as they coursed through Mumbai traffic) or just the mammoth diversity of architecture and natural beauty. I can honestly say that I always leave every trip with a hunger for more. It is a place that clenches you fully: eyes, heart, soul, stomach (also literally), feet and stimulates your senses. Looking forward for the next jump into this hypnotic twilight zone.
