When I shared pictures for Gokulashtami this year, I met with a strange, yet familiar reaction. “You don’t seem like the kind to invest time in idol worship!” My response was the same as it always is: I don’t need to wear my beliefs and culture on my sleeves. I’d much rather live by the lessons and the happiness in all places I look at. I am and always will be a sum total of all my choices and their consequences, and how I conduct myself in my own space is also a part of that learning.
I love festivals.(please go buy my book), because is it a celebration of our roots, beliefs and our existence. it is more a reason to make memories and feel good, especially in the trying time that we live in. Without this, we have little to dress up, show up and look forward to life like we know it!
