The Road Ahead
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”-Max Planck
Nomad roughly translates to banjara in Hindi,jajabor in Bangla and we are well accustomed to the negative connotations these terms have in our ‘civilised’ vocabularies. However, judging against the parameters of our lives, we are probably too hasty in our conclusions about them. A sense of home, albeit different from the one we know, exists in their heart and in the motion of life. The hardest terrains cultivate the strongest bonds of trust, far removed from the madness of fighting over etching lines on maps to call one's own. The owl shares the love of the nomads for distant uncharted places. As we usher in the new year, the owl urges you to try and look at your life through the eyes of a nomad and rediscover the simplicity and trust that get lost in the maddening rush of consumerism.
Until next time,
The Observant Owl
