There are so many things to say about India. Too much for one little blog post. But what struck me the most on a month long trek through India in 2010 was the incredible colors. Sure, the poverty and sheer number of people living amongst one another is unbelievable. The smells of spice and burning that strike you upon arrival are powerful. The sounds of beeping horns and busy streets are unavoidable. But once you spot a woman in a beautiful, bright pink sari fetching water from a well or carrying a bushel of wood for the fire, you know you’ve hit the pulse of the country. The women of India are the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. And the fact that they don’t even realize how stunning they are in the amazing colors they wear is what makes it magical.
