People are Friends in India

The title of this blog comes from one of the most marked observations I made while in India: there seems to be a camaraderie and genuine interest in meaningful conversations amongst friends, unlike anywhere I’ve ever been. Every where we went, people sat in twosomes or more engaging fully with one another, without the constant distraction of mobile phones. It would seem one of the favorite pastimes is just being anywhere with friends, talking. Seems simple and obvious, but it was very refreshing to see since you can watch a family of four spend an evening out to dinner with all four of them glued to their phones in one way or another.

As some of you may know, I got incredibly and unfortunately sick during this visit to India, meaning two things: I didn’t get a lot of the pictures I wanted, and I’ll have to go back sometime soon and be more mindful next time. Lesson learned.
