This is ABOUT: a PhD on Social Innovation in India, Community Engagement, studying, teaching, travels, a spiritual journey... sharing info in a non-judgmental way, non doctrinal yet giving opinions; exchanging experiences, inspiring stories, musics...
Writing is for me cathartic so forgive the length, highlights on top tips, links to further travelling info (Humano Ventures), spirituality...personal development, consulting (Irribizia); In ENGLISH mostly et en FRANCAIS aussi (plus personnel)
When I left the ashram this morning the waves once more,
were inviting…big, powerful…
But no time to surf this morning... I have to see… about a gal :-)
Short stop over at the DSP of Kollam, foreign office police department
that has to issue a NOL (Non Objection to Leave) every time I want to get out
of India… this time really fast, my few words of Malayalam are doing miracles
with Suresh Sir!
Then a great lunch in that funny round, shell of restaurant
near Tvd train station, great Mutton cutlets…
The search for a hotel nearby happened to be a lot more
problematic: all was booked (in my budget around 500Rs) because a renowned
swami was giving a lecture in the evening!
So I decided to go for an Ayurveda massage in the CVS Kalari
center, Kerala martial art. Gosh was it … martial, but one of the best massage
in my life, just I need to be all good for the trip and her arrival!
Lots of oil, ruined my Cacharel underwear and my towel but
was worth any penny!
Just what I needed after the stress of my PhD application
and sustainability conference org this week.
I recommend it: Dr Suril Kamail, CVS Center, Killipallam,
And then the pleasure to meet my friend Sajitha for tea, and
her lovely daughter.
Journey in a painter’s world… check inspiring section for all details on her work, Gwory Institute of Art, amazing creative place in the mountains...
Thinking of investing in my artistic sensitivities… as well as…
in the one of… that special
Bharat mataki Jay!
the future married couple, Shilpy Sankar... is sooo happy!
