One Man Tango

A true artist must conquer or be destroyed, create or die, move or be caught in the crush. In a man's work there are not only the seeds of life but also the seeds of death. The power of creation that sustains us will also destroy us, like a leprosy, if we leave it to rot in our vitals

The Long Strider

Reading travelogues is an interesting travel experience through words . Last week I read The Long Strider, a trail through the first English Traveler Thomas Coryate's travel route to India. Dom Morrais and Sarayu chase the old route and amazingly wrote the book.Thomas Coryate traveled in 1613 to India or highly risk route and witnessed raw life of the sub-continent. Apparently the traveller cant complete his ambitious book on India and he died at Surat. A beautiful read, Thanks Dom Morrais and Sarayu
