Hi again!…last time I posted I was telling you about the first day I was out in Delhi. Morning was busy with Lotus Temple , Humayun´s Tomb and India Gate.
The afternoon was different. After lunch Satish took me to Qutub Minar. This is the tallest minaret ( a distinctive architectural feature of Islamic mosques, generally a tall spire with an onion-shaped or conical crown, usually either free standing or taller than any associated support structure). The place is amazing , there are so many ruins full of beautiful engravings.
There is lots of space to walk around and try to picture how the site was in its golden age ( aprox. 1199 AD). probably one thing that s very interesting is the red sandstone and marble used to construct this huge mosque. If you are in Delhi , try to go there but avoid doing it on the weekend because is very crowded. I had to go back during the week in order to really appreciate the beauty of it. Great gardens surrounding the ruins.
After this I was ready to fall apart , very tired so Satish took me to the Hotel.
Sitting in my room , feeling a bit lonely , my tongue needed to express itself hahaha so I met a friend.
I must say that Chapal Mehra is probably one of the most special persons I have ever met . We talked for hours , obviously he was amazed at the way that I keep going on and on and I never shut up hahaha. We talked for hours and for sure he got a glimpse of my thirst to get to know as much of India as I could. besides being the best company ever , Chapal is also a great tour guide , he recommended several places for me to go and get the real Indian experience. everything I wrote down so that I can accomplish as much of the “tour” as I could.
You know when you get a chill because a strong connection was made with a special person , well the chill I felt with Chapal was not just a chill… it literally almost knocked me out. Will never forget those times… or the places , the smells the faces the simple facts. Thank you for being such a great guy , I will see you soon again. This quote is for you:
“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.” – Anais Nin
