I am from India and lived in US for 15 years before returning with my family five years back. I have travelled to Italy and Indonesia. I borrowed this book recently as an ebook from New York Public library. I skimmed through her Italy part of it but engrossed in her India experience. For most of Indians like me we don't see India with the same eyes as foreign touristts or writers . For us India is a crowded, dusty, hot country filled with corrupt, unreliable people. Every guru or a meditation/yoga teacher or a holy man is a suspect. But the book brought me to the things I have been looking in India. Why should one meditate. How does one feel befor learning how to meditate and after. She shared her experiences the way we all experience about meditation.. It touched something deep inside me. It is a start of a quest that I was afraid to embark.
