What in the world is going on?? I mean, on top of the constant bad worldy news – draughts, terrorist attacks, corruption, impending economy collapse, impeding war?… It seems that people’s personal lives are in chaos too.

A week ago I arrived from a wonderful 12 day trip to India, but I didn’t visit the India that most people know. I didn’t go to the Taj Mahal or see elephants swim in the waters of Kerala, I didn’t visit the pink city of Jaipur or the majestic Himalayas, and I didn’t explore the big cities like Delhi or Bangalore.
