We are like a beautiful empty bottle when we are born. As we grow, the bottle gets filled with wonderful things at times and with mundane things other times. Sometimes it gets clogged with filth. Rarely do we pause and check the contents of the bottle. And when we do, we find different ways to filter the contents. Of all the different ways, I find travelling the most effective way. I can’t agree more on what Anita Desai, the renowned Indian novelist has to say that, “wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.”
One of the most beautiful places that I had the opportunity to visit is Varanasi. Located on the banks of the sacred Ganga river, in the Northern part of India, this place made me experience so many things at once.
In a series of entries, I would post the details of my travel.
