India: Through Virgin Eyes
The pleasure of entering other people’s lives is an adventure into the glamour of Indian imagery; the ambrosia of their Gods and Avatars is everywhere. This story is told through the eyes of thirty real life characters - funny, intelligent, clever, respectful; their every conversation being about destiny.
My visit to India smashed all stereotypes, none of them were true, and every perception that I had gained from mainstream news media and reading academic books were also far from true. You see, I went to India with Virgin Eyes that would perceive perception as reality and truth. Striving to look at the world as though one had never seen it before, a search for pure perception, a fresh vision for me, I left my mind open and empty so to speak, realising that if I freed myself of stereotypes and abstractions I would live in a richer and more interesting world.
This book is not a common travelogue as you’ll find in the travel supplements of the weekend papers. No, I don’t go with that awful tourist idea that India is only a museum of antiquities and art. The Indian people are more marvelous than the land and temples.
