How was my trip to Amritsar, my friends asked me once I hit home turf again. It was a revelation, I answered. While nothing had changed outwardly, something inside me had changed following the trip. The two day visit could not have come at a more challenging time of my life, the boring details of […]

Days filled with the sunshine of innocence and nights filled with dreams of touching the clouds – that is the ideal definition of childhood.

Streets filled with hidden delights, light funnelling through slices of sky that have escaped crowded rooftops and overhead cables making for abstract art.
