India

Re-visiting India after a decade of traumatising decimations whilst displaced vagrant in the UK. My first visit I was stick thin, in contrast to this third visit, overweight with projection crippling mental health problems.

I have not written about my experiences in India, because I feel no requirement to justify or explain my presence there, simply because I felt my presence in everybodies else's presence.
