Hello and Namaste!
In 20o9-11 I sat down with over 40 westerners from 19 countries who live in India full or part-time and recorded their India stories. I later put them together in the e-book:
INDIA BITES YOU SOMEHOW – True-Life Tales
(see links at the end of this post)
INDIA BITES YOU SOMEHOW is a rollicking collection of true stories that take you deep into the heart of the magical, mysterious Indian experience.
This collection of stories are an intimate view into India through a multi-faceted looking glass. You will read about an amazing tsunami survival, follow a yogi who speaks to tigers, enter the world of an animal sanctuary, encounter spiritual salesmen, true sages, and be soothed by immeasurable acts of kindness. And that is just the beginning!
These narratives – moving, terrifying, hilarious, awe-inspiring — were recorded by the holy mountain Arunachala in South India, considered by many to be the most powerful place on Earth.
If you have been to India, you might recognize yourself in this book. If you would like to come to India, these stories are an advance warning, but with lots of encouragement. If you know you’ll never make it to India, this will take you deep into its essence, minus the scary microbes. And you will find out why, as one Canadian woman says, “Anything is possible in India! It really is! You might go crazy in the process, but it is possible!”

I am a cancer patient who has been given the all clear for Stage 4 Lymphoma. India is on my bucket list. In late January I am going for 29 days to Southern India. This book I cannot put down. All stories are true life, whether they are about homeless dogs, funeral pyres or the unending generosity of the Indian heart. This book is a wealth of knowledge. It is not a guide book to the various temples, but a guide to the soul of India. I feel that I have a much better understanding of snippets that comprise India.

The stories in this book are so well written, so humanly felt, deeply touching and at times searing. Reading it felt like a call home. For those like myself with a deep intimate connection to India the stories in this book bring back the smells and sounds and tastes of Mother India.
