When I took off from the Singapore Changi airport bound for my Indian adventure, by a strange coincidence one of my favourite movies was on in the aircraft. This was The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The idea of the movie is that travelling and adventure are great teachers.
So it was for me during the 24 days spent in the marvelous Southern India. In addition to diverse and splendid sceneries seen, and to fantastic people met on the way, I was constantly confronted with life-learning situations. Here is the list of my top 10 that India had taught me.
- Don’t plan too much.
- Let your goals be indicators on the way, not “must-achieve-by-all-means” destinations.
- Trust the Universe. Everything is OK in the end.
- Be open and friendly. Openness attracts beautiful people and situations.
- Be a ‘yesman’ (yeswoman). Be open for new experiences.
- Be here and now. Life is a wonderful gift.
- Be flexible.
- Be tolerant.
Wish everyone find his lessons in incredible India!
