Came across two news articles that brought back old memories
* A kid found out that he liked walking on his hands when he was about three or four years old. And now for the past decade has decided to walk on his hands as his main mode of transportation.
* There was a recent discovery of a cow with three eyes. The cow has received instant celebrity status and is now being worshiped as a holy cow. People have been queuing up to have darshan (holy audience) with the cow.
Borrowing a line from an old song – ‘This happens only in India’. All sarcasm aside, I haven’t felt prouder to be an Indian. A lot of us are trying to find themselves in this world.
Saw the movie ‘Darjeeling Limited’, where three American brothers go to India to find their spiritual selves. The movie revolves around their train journey in the desert state of rajasthan (unlike what the title suggest as Darjeeling is a snow covered hill station in the Himalayas).
The brothers traveled half way across the world to find their identity, without realizing that maybe their identities lie back home as mine is with my brothers – the hand walking, three eyed cow worshiping people. Word!
