Churchgate railway station is the southernmost station in Mumbai and maybe the most peopled:
during the rush hour there are people more than rush.

Goa, India, and a guide for travel: Hope for the best and be prepared for the worst

Ganesha-patsas

India is well-known as a spiritual country, and it attracts people interested in things alike.

The saying goes that, in country like India,
anything is possible –

So, hope for the best and be prepared for the worst, when you travel there.

Whereas my blogwritings seem to be just praising Goa / India,
it’s better keep one’s feet on the ground, once the plane has landed,
since though Goa does remind one of a paradise,
the good comes with the bad. Anywhere, it seems.

But let me not reminisce about the bad more than this.

“Whatever happens, happens for good” –
When you’re being honest and sincere.

India Express in Helsinki, Finland

After returning to Helsinki, I found out for my joy,
that India is present here, in a form of India Express -exhibition in Tennispalatsi Artmuseum as well as “Passage to India” -exhibition in the neighbouring Museum of Cultures.

Went to see the exhibition straight away, got a kind of a soft landing back to West.

I recommend these exhibitions, of course. They will tell you a lot what I’d like to tell.
But let me say, that the only one black goddess statue there isn’t at all as “scary” as
what they were in those temples in India..
