I’m sitting on the plane as I kick of this blog. In a couple of hours, we will touch down in Mumbai and the adventure begins! I’m filled with many emotions, a huge sense of excitement, anticipation and a definitely some nervousness too! Whilst being Indian by ethnicity and having visited this land numerous times, living here will be a first.
It’s a beautiful and strange place of extremes. Spiritual and religious fervour alongside materialistic pursuits. Extreme poverty alongside ravish wealth. Celebration and festivities alongside suffering and exploitation. A land built on principles of non-violence and truth yet filled with bribery and corruption. Stunning mountains and lush jungle alongside polluted streets and slums. India is truly a land like none other and I am looking forward to the learnings that await!
I hope to use this platform as a way to capture and share experiences and insights of life living and working here in India. Stay connected, come visit and thank you for sharing in the journey!
