For some reason, every time I read the blurb about it, I felt disinterested. A girl goes to India, hates it, and is forced to move there with her boyfriend. Like the synopsis says, Sarah visits India on vacation and hates everything about it. Lo and behold she falls in love with a man whose job moves him to India, and of course she goes too. Some so dramatic that you literally find yourself laughing out loud.
She paints a vivid picture of an indescribable world.
One where women are nothing without a man. Where thousands of people wash their sins clean in a river. Where weddings are weeklong extravaganzas full of joy.
Where people are tolerant of other religions. She learns yoga from a man who treats it like an aerobics class and learns the language from a teacher who insists she only speak the most proper version.
After a brush with death, Sarah finds that being an atheist might not be her best choice.
She spends time with Buddhist monks learning that all life is equal. While there she encounters a bug in her room, which results in her first test. She spends an excessive amount of time trying to catch and release the little guy into the hallway where a monk walks by and steps on it without noticing. She visits Hindus and spends time in silence learning to ease her anger at others.
