Haridwar, India

‘ve written about the very moving experience of visiting an ashram watching over a 1000 sadhus being served a free meal with gifts included. This happens every night. I was standing on the balcony watching each Sadhu eat the same food in different ways. One would tear up their bread in tiny pieces. One would eat the bread whole dipping it in the Dahl. One would refuse the bread and only have rice. One would only have yogurt. I mentioned this to Sanjeev, not thinking too much about it. He laughed and said, “Oh, that is all about the condition of their teeth! Nothing else!”
My lesson – “Never take anything you see for granted while traveling!”
