Thoughts

India is very vibrant, alive but in the jungle sense of the word – there is no order and everything feels organic. Structures, even when new, seem be in a state of permanent disrepair. Nature and Culture face off in a constant battle, neither winning, only keeping entropy at bay to allow continued existence, to allow life to propagate, to allow chaos, to allow colour and decay, beauty and brutality. Inimitable.

One is not sure if a view into the past is afforded or, indeed, a vision of the future. For the world has many paths it can follow – all possibilities along the quantum stream, liber universum.

Traffic in Delhi

I am in Delhi at the moment and have a driver who takes me to and from the office.

He says there are three things you need to drive in Delhi.

1. A good horn

2. Good brakes

3. Good luck

 

I can attest to the veracity of this statement. It is astonishing that the entire population of Delhi has not been killed in traffic accidents yet.

Whatever forces or system are at play – it seems to work, defying all logic and sense.
