You came here a quarter century ago...that is a long time to be away from Mother India - has there, over the past 25 years, been a real separation or not? Where is the contact point for you?
I hope this simple question will elicit a very nice revelatory response -
The separation is only physical - and even that gets removed regularly as I visit family every 18-24 months. Being in the USA has created the desire in me - by the repeated questioning of American friends - to study and understand the religion I grew up with - Hinduism.
So, in a way, I am more in touch with India - her thoughts, her scriptures, her traditions and her many paths to Divinity - living 7500 miles away :) It is to stay in touch, to educate myself - that I created http://blog.eaglespace.comalmost 15 years ago with a single post on the Gayatri mantra. It has grown a bit since then. :-)
