Adventuring India

I've done two weeks, well, 16 days so far. I've had some lovely hospitality from my very good friend Karen and Zaria in Mumbai, who integrated me into the upper echelon of Indian society and shared me around the parties. And we've been to a few Bollywood parties as well, which has been an experience and enjoyable in itself. So far I'm having a really good time. Very unique compared to the other countries I've been to, very harmonious

What's the vibe that you're getting off of the place? And I always like asking people how they feel about Rajasthan in terms of initial impressions because most of the people that go there usually are overwhelmed and can't really tell in terms of subtle similarities and differences between the various towns. So I was wondering if you caught on to any of that. So let's get this conversation rolling

And it's good to sort of hear people's stories because you sort of to osmosis learn how to do things and how to make the best of your day. So I'm looking forward to hearing more stories. And I believe God is going to be going to Europe soon to to London, so hopefully we'll be hearing about his trip as well. So I love that as well as a place where we can have truly global experiences. So thanks for contributing

The phrase I'm being told is, our guests are our god. And we actually had a very animated discussion about yesterday on the card, talking about culture, the differences and just sort of saluting the Indian people, really. How mature. I don't know how to describe it. Harmonious and loving and intelligent they are here. So, yeah, I can go into that more if anyone fancies in response to that

Hey, buddy. Yep, it was fantastic hanging out in Bombay. I'll be back soon. Don't worry. I'll be back for a long time, actually, so I'll be documenting that as well. So, yeah, I'll just sort of jump in. I started off in Jodhpur, flew in from Bombay. The flight was probably around Rs6000, which is about $65 just off the top of my head. Flew in straight away

But I didn't really expect to go to Ragnat for that long. But I ended up going there. But that's the perks of being a fellow traveler with no plan whatsoever. So it's a good time there, I would probably say. Judge bowl is my favorite, just in terms of the friends I made

@DBPardes

Yes, I completely agree. One of my favorite quotes is the lack of wisdom isn't the lack of knowledge, it's lack of perspective. And, you know, particularly if you were born in the west or whatever, you're always told certain things, do it this way, for example, and then you can come somewhere like here and find out, oh, wow, there's a whole new way you can do things. And there's more than one right answer to everything as well

The Manhattan Stereotype. Here’s a link to Incredible India : https://youtu.be/0LmOwnVUB0E

Unless and until you stumble upon the actual reality, the same analogy and logic holds true for India. Oftentimes we have a stereotypical presentation of India globally. They will show dingy streets, cows on the road, and traffic and hustle bustle. And while that being true, nobody is denying that they never show Aladdaq or Manali or a Kurg or Kerala. There are unbelievable in Rajasthan where if you go to Jesselmir, unbelievable scenic routes and beautiful landscapes

And I wanted to come here as well to sort of subvert those perceptions and sort of show everybody what the real India is like. I used to study media at school and I was really passionate about it and basically, without sounding too boring, it's called the hypodermic needle theory cultivation theory, which is basically, the more you're exposed to an idea, the more you begin to believe it

Short answer is yes, absolutely, without a doubt. Should you exercise caution? Yes, of course we should. But is there something to absolutely freak out about? No, I don't think so. One go through this link that I've shared, it generally covers most of the aspects of your travel, gives you specifics of distances and what to expect

@aayanman

I've got a load of questions to ask you, such as, what are your thoughts on the west? I know the biggest shock I always find when I go to places is the similarity, not the differences. But, yeah, just what were your sort of thoughts from the west? Did you find differences between the UK? Were there any stereotypes which you think were upheld? Were there things you thought were different? Were there any sort of pin drop moments?
