๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ Indien

Melting pot of religions and cultures - from Amritsar to the east coast

On my second visit to India, I travelled from Delhi to Punjab to Rajasthan to Uttar Pradesh and to the far east of Odisha, visiting some very special places that I had wanted to visit for years. India is a unique contrast of harmony and chaos, of profound hospitality and downright skullduggery. I never knew whether to trust or distrust, to say yes or no. But it's no wonder, India is one of the poorer parts of the world, although there is incredible wealth, unfortunately often based on corruption and fraudulent business practices. But poverty and often desperation dictate the daily routine and the general appearance. However, in light of these facts, I was humbled to see how these mostly poor people manage their lives. They are kind at heart. They are respectful and fair. Everyone can learn a lesson from them.
