India – a different planet! That’s a commonplace, but it is true that the more you immerse yourself in Indian culture the more ungraspable the country seems. A perceptive Indian friend once said to me that one can understand Western culture within a few months but that it takes several reincarnations to plumb the soul of India.
Long relegated to a background role on the world stage, India is now increasingly present on the international scene. It would seem that it is finally reconnecting with its thousand-year-old roots and its glorious past, a melting pot of many foundations of our current society.
Despite being imbued with Indian culture from a young age it wasn’t until 2014 that my Indian adventure really began. I left everything behind in France (yes, absolutely everything!) and set off on a 5-year journey through the land of Gandhi, eventually settling down in Udaipur, Rajasthan, the romantic city of lakes.
Although my story does not end there! During my explorations I met the one who would become my life partner … So now, here I am, totally immersed in the heart of Indian culture!
This blog aspires, in an intentionally positive spirit, to bear witness to India’s remarkably diverse and multifaceted cultural heritage. It serves as a platform from which I am able to express my passion for this incredible country which has whole-heartedly adopted and bewitched me.
If this website sparks a desire to pack your bags and set off for an Indian adventure, it will have achieved its purpose.
Have a good trip around MAGIK INDIA and pleasant wanderings in the sacred land of Bharat! Namaskar!
