Visiting the giant neighbour!

This is the statue of the Imperial Gurdian Lion from the Han Dynasty. It was believed that it had powerful mythical power of protection and often the statue would be found in front of important buildings.

My daughter M and I visited China in March 2012 and it has been one magnificent trip.  We visited five cities over a period of 12 days and each one of those cities has left us with wonderment, fascination, curiosity, amazement, memories and questions.  Our taste buds got tickled and challenged, new people met and new friendships forged.  There were so many things that we absolutely loved and many others that left us feeling hesitant and not very good, things that we took with a pinch of salt.  In the coming days, I would try and post memories of China from varying view points as they have stayed with me after my return.

I live in Bangalore, India, and by profession, I am CEO of a consulting organization, a Gender & Diversity Consultant and an Executive Coach. I write because I like writing. However, sometimes it makes sense to convey my thoughts to others and connect with others. Maybe it strikes a chord; perhaps it does not. My life has been my most outstanding teacher, which is why I like sharing my experiences, memories, encounters and other narratives that I build as I go along. I am interested in people, society, culture, ways of life, individual and collective narratives/stories as they lead us to discover each other as nothing else does. I also write about coaching, people's lives, culture, stories, mothering my daughter, believing in a feminine way of life, and most of all, believe that all politics starts from the self and personal convictions
