“India is, in short, a country that provokes. It does it through life itself. So much life. Everywhere, people living. There’s very little that’s subtle about India. India is in your face. It defies you to visit and leave feeling the same way. And hence, India is the perfect country for transformation. Change your environment to change yourself. There are never truer words in India”.
Extract from an article that I wrote for popular Australian lifestyle website TheHoopla about India, transformation, and my book.
