Holy cow! It's India

Put a Bindi on your forehead, wear the comfy fisherman pants, go mad and do a bit of yoga - but don't come back from India preaching spiritual enlightenment to your mates who are caught in the never ending cycle of birth, death and rebirth and wouldn't know a Bodhisattva if it hit them in the head....The golden rule is; what goes on tour, stays on tour - that includes your transformation - which is magical really considering you did in a month what it takes masters a lifetime to achieve....

Take a read of Holy Cow by Sarah MacDonald for a converted cynic's view of India - she lived there for 2 years and covered all the major festivals worth attending: Holi - don't drink the water that day; Hanuman - where monkeys run amok; The Buddhist Flower festival, and the Elephant-headed Ganesha's throw down.

A perfect intro to Inja, with details and travel specs. But best of all SHE KEEPS HER SENSE OF HUMOUR, which is rare for anyone who has spent any time over there....
