Hi! I'm Michelle. I'm half-Indian and half-white, but until very recently, I had never been to India.
Here’s Part 1 of my journey:
Here’s Part 2:
I grew up in a family that embraced both cultures, and I loved it. But there was always something missing.
It wasn't until my grandfather's unexpected death, that I needed to go to India to perform his last rites ceremony.
This trip was also my dad's first time returning to India in 37 years.
When we got there, it was beautiful, and it was so humbling. This was the life I could've had.
AND THE FOOD WAS SO GOOD!
Something about being there and having access to the country's spices made it a completely different experience.
It was so cool getting to see where my dad grew up.
Back then, his daily routine was to get up at 4AM to get milk, then meditate and pray.
