I'm back home!

India is one big mystery!
I'm so happy that my never loud-spoken dream came true so suddenly.
Few points to summarize my impressions:

1. Goa is a fantastic place to catch a breath and relax, perfect destination for a colder season.
The tableau of Goa showcases religious harmony by focusing on the Deepastambha, the Cross, Ghode Modni followed by a chariot. Western royal attire of kings and regional dances being performed depict the unique blend of different religions and cultures of the State.

2. Kerala - the land of Ayurveda, worth a separate visit in the future.
According to legend, Kerala was an Asura-ruled kingdom under Mahabali. Onam, the national festival of Kerala, is dedicated to Maveli's memory. Another legend has Parasurama, an avatar of Mahavishnu, throwing his battle axe into the sea; from those waters, Kerala arose.

3. Sivananda ashram is one of these rare places where one can learn about their subtle self. The ashram program covers classical yoga techniques, taught in a warm and friendly environment, helps to instil in guests a deep awareness of the spiritual essence of life.
