Excerpts from my diary

February 2018
Cochin, India

There is something in him which is magically attractive. It is not what he says or does or what he looks like. It is simply beyond my understanding. Yet something powerful is throbbing undeniably inside me in his presence! Never even in my wildest dreams could I imagine that someone like him can actually exist in this miserable human jungle. And that such a person’s very presence can unburden anyone who resonates with him without mystifying him. If I didn’t meet him, I would have never known that life can be lived the way he lives. I would instead be living believing in stories of God and godmen, thirsting for a state that doesn’t exist!
