Packed with lots of highly spiced curry, cows, and comedy, Bindi lady takes us on one heck of a wild journey throughout India. From Dharamsala and the Dalai Lama to ashrams, yoga faculties, and meditation melodramas, Bindi educates and entertains as she is going. we find the Hindu deities, the vacationer seize mafia, and the seashore havens of the hippie path. From “Guru Disney” to the holy hell of Varanasi, Bindi’s bought us clamoring for extra masala chai the entire way.
When Bindi meets an enticing younger stranger who's greater than her psychological and actual fit, her fiery spirit is placed to the attempt. He whisks her off to the furthest reaches of India—the Andaman Islands within the Bay of Bengal. There, in an remoted jungle, they try and reside out a Robinson Crusoe myth. Will or not it's the backyard of Eden or turn out a normal catastrophe? one of the wild attractiveness and probability of the islands and the kooky insanity of “typical India,” Reese takes us deep into the center of a rustic and her very self.
Bindi woman is a present to the tourist, the non secular seeker, and the armchair tourist—anyone craving for sincere idea and a true kick to get out and actually live!
