I shall go to India (after Carole Satyamurti)

October 14, 2012

Because it is warm in India.

Because they have rickshaws in India.

Because there are pomegranates in India.

Because in my head I have the picture of a woman
eating the seeds of a pomegranate with a pin,
like bright red rubies, she has
red nails and red lips.

Because it will help me explore my identity.

Because Buddhism was founded in India, in 500 B.C.

Because Jews and Christians have lived continuously in India,
since 200 B.C and 52 A.D, respectively.

Because I will be able to take lots of photographs.

Because Gandhi came from India.

Because Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus all came from India.

Because it will give me a new angle on things.

Because India is famous for yoga (and I was once quite flexible).

Because my ex-best friend is from India and going there will remind me to make up with her.

Because it will give me something to talk about with my hairdresser.

Because I live in Leicester.

Because India has an extensive railway network.

Because the total distance covered by it’s
fourteen-thousand-three-hundred trains
everyday, equals, three and a half times
the distance to moon.

Because it will be a start.
