I can’t believe that it’s already been a month since we returned to Boston from Delhi. I sometimes close my eyes and I still hear the sounds and smells of India. The soul of the place has captured me…
Before the trip I remember myself in Boston thinking about India and how it would be like. It was like a puzzle, which I was trying to create from images I saw or I created in my head from stories my friends told me. Now I am back in Boston and I have the REAL picture in my head and not only that… Before it was just a one-dimensional picture. Now it’s a movie with characters and a story, with sounds, tastes, smells and emotions.
This journey however goes beyond that. We learned about ourselves and from the people we met. Do you remember arriving in the city seeing the challenges its people face day after day? Then you meet its people who start to talk about how they are driving growth and innovation? We also learned so much about ourselves, when we were put in situations we never anticipated and we had to push through! Let’s not forget this experience and let’s revisit this journey and any such journey in any way we can.
Wherever I travelled, no matter how beautiful, surprising, shocking the place was, it was the people that made me remember it! I wish we find a way to maintain these relationships…I feel there is more to learn from them. It’s up to us!
