India Lessons overload

Posted: May 9, 2014 in Uncategorized

Thought I should gather a few lessons av gathered in India. Didnt expect the list to be so long , neither to anticipate writing edition 2 . Some I will keep some I will unlearn as soon as soon that flight touches  JKIA grounds, whichever way the learning was worth it all. Each of these has fascinating stories behind them.

  • To pull a beautiful poker face
  • To dodge stuff, cars , people , things
  • Ek minute …because a minute can be a lifefime, a lifetime can be a minute
  • Jesus rocks
  • To say yes more often
  • Hanging on the edge of the train, and while at it jump while its on the move
  • Run for my life
  • To feel and not feel everything with the same magnitude
  • Yoga Magic
  • The Bhaiya bait—to get everything I want from locals without a single drop of sweat
  • To Stop and Stare
  • Go for coffee dates alone and have a bliss

  • Accepting that my heart is too small for dogs
  • Being grateful
  • To accept freely without questioning food , sweets, gifts , friends,
