October of last year I travelled to India for a 2 month vacation. A trip to Hyderabad and some adorable moments with my niece; Diwali and a wedding at V’s parents’ place in Delhi; a family get together for my niece’s second birthday at my parents place in Allahabad and some fun meetings with friends were the highlights of my stay.
Here are a few pics from that trip.
Besides family, I also got a chance to take a few pics here and there.
Every time when I go to India, it always strikes me how someone staying there can not be humble about the luxuries that they have. Its always a reality check for me and all the problems and little things I cry over, because a minute out on the road in India you see so many people from different facets of life, dealing with much bigger problems than you and being more strong about it than you can ever be. You will see kids who should in perfect reality be in a school uniform taking down lessons, but instead are doing odd jobs on the street. You see people who are half your size pulling carts loaded with stuff ten times their size. But in all this sadness, you see life, you see hope, you see people struggling to make life better, you see people finding joy in simple things. And you learn. You learn so much.
