Memoirs of Rangoli ... (p1) - the unexpected

Jama' Masjid
Old Delhi, India
February 2016

why do i need to go this time? 
a question that played in my mind, upon deciding to embark on this so called journey. i was really in the blue, unable to speak my mind clearly on what has been bothering me, what did i want...and so on. i was hurt. hurt that being neglected and left out from the chapter. i need to distance myself, go somewhere that i could reflect, see and experience something new etc. cliche eh?

the departure date was about 2 weeks to go, and a quick email helped me to confirm there was still slot for me to join the group. and i made the decision that night, then straightaway made the payment for the deposit. almost everybody surprised with my sudden plan. crazy eh? 

things went as per plan after that...i mean the next day i went for the group briefing in Bangi, and then few days later joining the group, doing our visa to India etc. 

honestly, i didn't know what to expect, other than taking 100% on what the group leader told us, as the basis. this is the first trip to a totally new place/country that i didn't study and make any plan at all. period.

how had it been? i never regret my spontaneous decision about this trip. as vibrant and diverse the colours of rangoli...that was my memory. this sub-continent struck me for being so unique with its own charm and i love almost all of it. 

almost? obviously...
