I believe I am a creative person….I paint, sketch and I write!
This blog Astonishing India, was born out of my sheer pride for my country and to let the world know how diverse this country is…its architectural and cultural heritage is rich…it is the birth place of ‘zero’ which changed the way the world counted…it is where the ‘kaamsutra’ originated which changed the way the world loved…it is where’OM’ resonates with the most powerful energy…it is where the world rushed to taste aromatic spices….it is where the ‘vedas’ reside…
Yes, it is all that……Traditional, historic, festive, mythical, scientific, modern, exotic, beautiful, cultured but it sometimes is also chaotic, superstitious, narrow-minded, bizarre, in love with each other yet ready to erupt at the slightest of provocation. There still are those who believe in ‘tantric’ powers(black magic) and yet it is a military force to reckon with…..India definitely is incredible and astonishing and truly you can love it, hate it but you can never ignore it!
Come with me to see India with my eyes….
