Balderdash and Claptrap

India – a contradiction in terms

I have just returned from a weekend in India. 

I think what struck me most about the place was that it was such an enormous contradiction. 

The complex and unwieldy bureaucracy juxtaposed with sheer and utter chaos. Arriving at 4am we thought we’d complete a swift transfer to our hotel. Not likely! The visa, passport, paperwork checks and double checks before a near-death taxi ride through the awakening city to a dawn chorus of beeping shouting and swerving. 



Splendor and squalor sit side-by-side, holding hands with extravagance and destitution. 

It’s a cliché to say it was an ‘experience’. But it was.
