In all the world, there is no other place quite like India.
Here, the human condition is stripped bare and on full public display.
Immersed in the intense pulse of life on the street, I find a visceral, timeless authenticity of being, an utter lack of self-consciousness in the people that I am drawn to, again and again.
In India, a street is a place of chaos, serenity, suffering, love, devotion, and magic — all equally potent, all coexisting, all of the time.
It cannot be selectively parsed for only convenient or pleasant experiences — and if you should try, you will only cheat yourself.
India demands much of her visitors — but for those who can embrace her on her own terms, the rewards are sublime.
