I walked into jalebi and kachori stall to have a snack and some lassi and pondered. So the proverb “One who knows himself need not know anything else” perhaps means that the self is all that there is. If one can understand the self, he is all knowing because the self inside me is what is also inside everything else. Inner knowledge is all knowledge and when one can tap into the inner whirlpool of wisdom, all questions start finding the right answers. I felt like I was on a roll and I love to travel and it gives me feeling of some much freedom and also momentum. One is alone to analyse one’s thoughts and derive new meaning from everyday experience. I was beginning to see the goodness in all in this space. Maybe because people here were so much simple in their manner and content with their rituals, tradition and religion.
Rajasthan is unique with its arid and sandy desert that changes to a rocky green landscape. The nights here can get chilly and people are all vegetarian. At the fair, which was a pretty large event, I did see some discipline maintained by the local police, private guards and the local administration. The streets and bazaars are crowded with colour and vitality. I realised that I had a need and desire to explore more of this unique land!
