There are some places in the world I am DYING to visit and India is on the top of the list. I have such an affinity for the colors, the music, the tradition and the mania that make up this beautiful country.
I found this video and quote on my friend’s tumblr and had to share. ENJOY!
“Out of its squalor and human decay, its eruptions of butchery, India produced so many people of grace and beauty, ruled by elaborate courtesy. Producing too much life, it denied the value of life; yet it permitted a unique human development to so many. Nowhere were people so heightened, rounded and individualistic; nowhere did they offer themselves so fully and with such assurance. To know Indians was to take a delight in people as people; every encounter was an adventure. I did not want India to sink [out of my memory]; the mere thought was painful.” ~ V.S. Naipul (An Area of Darkness)
