Som a Hampi, una ciutat que ens havia quedat molt pendent l'última vegada que vam venir a l'Índia: patrimoni de la Humanitat per la UNESCO, amb centenars de temples i runes.
Al capvespre hem anat a un dels temples més importants, Sri Virupaksha, un punt de peregrinatge hinduista. Dins hi hem trobat famílies senceres fent ofrenes i encenent milers d'espelmes.
We are already in Hampi, a city that we hadn't visited the first time we went to India even though we were willing to: UNESCO World Heritage Site, with hundreds of temples and ruins.
In the evening we have gone to one of the most important temples, Sri Virupaksha, a place of Hinduism pilgrimage. Around us we have found whole families doing offerings and lighting thousands of candles.

As I stood here on the mountain top, and could not help but fathom the little rough structures of the distant snow peaks, I wondered to myself that whether this nomadic nature of mine will truly ever end. I wondered that whether I will ever have a normal life, the one where you settle in with the one you love and have kids and make plans for your future, because when I truly look at ten years of mine, down the line, it still looks hazy.
So, when a little voice pushes me to a mountain top and I look down below into the valley, and could see the structure of clouds a little more clearly and could almost feel like I can touch the sky and see the Himalayan birds nestling in the trees of high end peeks, I feel alive, truly feel alive and happy and then there is this unsaid force within me that can never give up on this, however clumsy life might seem to me ten years down the line.
And then maybe I might not be a successful daughter, or a successful individual in the eyes of the society, but then I have come to realize that success itself is relative and comparing my life to someone else’s little pieces is a disservice to the beauty and complexity of both of our stories. So here I am, enjoying the beauty of unsurity because I don’t know any other way than to count every single day as the best day of my life.
