Six Months in India started out as a series of journal entries that I made while on a 6 month stay in India. I had always wanted to be a wandering yogi, and since my extended family lives there, I decided to drop everything and go. This book speaks about the lives of Hindus from an American perspective, but one of Indian origin. It is very candid and open, as I describe festivals, ashrams, cultural directives, and such things, giving "the good, the bad, and the ugly" about everything I encounter.

The purpose of the book is both to entertain readers in a humorous way, but also to inform and teach about where yoga comes from, and the original context that gave birth to it, before it became such a phenomenon in the West.

About the Author

Though I was born and brought up in the USA, my parents had come from India just a few years earlier, so I had an interesting mix of both cultures growing up. But growing up, I always wondered what India was like, we would celebrate some of the holidays and things, but I wanted to immerse myself in the culture and learn about my roots. So I spent 6 months travelling all over the country, reconnecting with my family there on both sides, and writing this book.

Though a techie and real estate guy, my side hobby has always been studying Indian philosophy, and I am a yoga instructor on the weekends. I love teaching and sharing this, as it is a way to great health and a happy life.
