When I visited India last year I have to admit I left the country with incredibly mixed feelings about it. There is no doubt that it is a beautiful, natural country with many amazing things to do and see, which sadly I could only touch upon during my two week trip. I’ve written before about my favourite things about India and I stand by everything on that list. The colours, the animals, the food, the architecture and the landscape are all things I adored about India.
I was however, perplexed by the chaos of it all. The disparity between rich and poor is both shocking and alarming yet I find it hard to see how anything will be done about this anytime soon. The amount of slums, filled with little ramshackle structures barely the size of a two man tent, that I saw was something I’ll never forget. I won’t be able to get pictures of children begging on the streets, people defecating on train tracks and people sleeping rough on the busy city streets out of my mind anytime soon.
