Not Meeting Vivek

Karpagambal Mess, Mylapore

Karpagambal Mess, Mylapore

Omigod, I was so inspired to write some notes from the road… what I’ve been up to here in India so far. And then… and then I read back on the Twitter updates since last time I came online. AARRRGGGHHHH!!! I can’t belive this!!! Life is so bloody cruel, teasing and tempting… withholding.

Early Morning in Bombay

VT Station, Mumbai

VT Station, Mumbai

I’m in a yellow and black taxi just outside Mumbai airport, on my way to a hotel in the Fort Area. The full moon is shining between rooftops, appearing between hoardings boasting Hrithik Roshan’s gorgeous Provogue ads and curious pictures of 67 year old Amitabh Bachchan in his role as Auro, a 12 year old child suffering from progeria in the upcoming Hindi film Paa.

Between Istanbul & Bombay

Mumbai, India

Mumbai, India

The full moon’s reflection is dancing in the sea thousands of metres below us, playing hide-and-seek… revealing itself only in sparkling glimpses between scattered islands as we move swiftly across the sky, wings spread widely. Beautiful cities between sleep and awake, resting in a blur of light and darkness… trains silently wriggling across the land as if they were glow worms… A quick stop and change of flights in Istanbul… and on the other side of midnight Mumbai is waiting for us, with arms wide open.

How Deep are Your Claw Marks?

Lynxes

How deep are your claw marks?

The only advice I can give is to dig in your claws as little as possible. Because you’re going to be dragged into the truth; the only question is how deep are the claw marks you leave in the ground as you get dragged :) And you will leave some claw marks because everybody leaves some claw marks; everybody holds on. Everybody holds on but the less you hold on, the easier and quicker it goes.

Yantras and Snowflakes

Snögubbe

Intricate yantras

Yantras are present in the world of nature as the crystalline forms in minerals and in snowflakes. [...] The universe consist of a pulsating network of cosmic forces, of Shiva and Shakti energies, that create various geometrical patterns, through which all forms are structured. The universe is a great yantra of incredible power and intricate beauty that one can contemplate forever.
