I just returned from India and am still dreaming about the things I saw and felt during the trip. Nothing can quite prepare you for India. Though this was my third time visiting India, I felt so drawn to the intoxicating culture, magnetic energy there and I felt inspired and utterly enchanted by intensity, incredible colours, smells and sounds.
I mainly spent time in Rajasthan this time and traveled with my 5 year old daughter.
It wasn't a easy trip for her because of the extreme heat, noise and chaos but I was so keen to take her to India, her father's and ancestor's land.
At the Thar Desert near Jasisalmer. A local Rajasthani lady calling out to her child.
At Gadisar Lake in Jaisalmer. Surrounded by a number of Hindu temples and shrines. Enjoyed the complete silence just observing local people's morning prayers after the sunrise.
Thar Desert just before the sunset.
While wandering around a local bazaar, I met a beautiful young mother holding a baby with Kajal rimmed eyes. We started smiling each other after realising we are both mothers.
