It is over a month since we met Vicky, a bright and appealing young man, who at the age of eighteen impressed us greatly. We could see good things happening to him and hope he gets to better himself and see more of the world.
But now we see that the end of his journey may well be on a funeral pyre by the side of the Ganges. But to the Hindus it is just another chapter and he will return to this world in another body at another time.
We too have come to the end of our journey, and we would very much like to return to India sometime soon. But hopefully it will be in our existing bodies and without the aid of a funeral pyre.
It has been a fascinating trip. We have seen some fabulous sights, but as always it is the people we meet who make it special and I would like to leave you with a few of the faces we vividly remember.
