My recent visit to India was after 2 years. As an Indian who lives in USA , whenever i visit my family , I have that inquisitive-ness – what would have changed in India , during this time? Every time I go back , I get some cultural shocks because lets face it things have changed in 10 years – the time I left India , I ponder over the spending capacity of people and I keep on comparing everything between my time and today’s time. But then its my motherland. Its my country. Its my home. I love it and I definitely miss it. I miss India for the warmth of the people, the taste of the food, the way people celebrate festivals , the ease of drying clothes in sunny skies( something i really really miss in USA :p) and the attitude of people towards God and spirituality. In my every visit to India , I feel more alive , I learn a lot and it brings me closer to reality. Here are few things which I feel make my experience of visiting India unique “10 Things I learnt in India”
1) Just be happy , worry another day :
Whenever I visit India , I always have this urge of – live in the moment. My visit to India is generally centered around meeting friends and family and those moments seem so precious that you do not want to trade off it with any other thing – no adventure , no other trip , nothing. Its all about catching up with their lives , reminiscing old things , and remembering your childhood days. Its about family re-unions and evening dates with friends. Its those moments when you really feel – This is it. Just be happy. This is life. I will worry about my job , my visa status, my promotion, my boss some other day.
