  • Colors and chaos. India has been a full spectrum of emotions. No other place or trip has made me feel so much. It forces you awake in every sense, which can manifest as both a blessing and a test.

If you watched my stories I didn’t have the best time at Holi. In short, as a female traveler Holi in the streets is an experience I would be very wary of. I think it could be really cool if you go to private events or attend in the morning much earlier in the week (other friends did this and had a better time). I knew it would be intense, but underestimated how uncomfortable/intrusive/aggressive it would be. We all crave the “real” experiences, but what I experienced was anything but cultural, historical, or representative of the kindness I’ve otherwise been shown here in India.

It made me sad and angry that my very presence as a woman made me feel like I can’t or I’m not allowed to attend a fun event. It doesn’t sit well with my egalitarian sense of self. I was pissed at being groped - drunk or crowds, India or not wtf people? - But it also makes me much more sympathetic to the women (or men) across the globe who deal with this in ways big or small.🙏🏼 So foreigners or friends let’s ALL go the extra mile to look out for each other and to ask people if they need help when we’re not sure. ACTIONS at the time mean a lot more than apologies from a hundred people later. I can tell you it meant a lot when a stranger put himself out there to protect me or the numerous times people give directions when I’m lost. Then let’s also do our part as travelers, be aware, well informed and culturally respectful💗

  • Fire: symbol of caution and metaphor for power. 
The charm of this city, the calm of the river, the energy that flows, the vibrant night colours and the ferry tales in the day. Well, as per mythology Shiva cursed all the gods and goddesses to end up coming back to this shore. Secretly he knew it was a paradise for all. Thanking Shiva for this curse by presenting him an evening Aarti at Dashashwamedh Ghat.
