I returned from India physically and emotionally debilitated and regretted going there. I delayed writing about the trip, hoping that time would put things in perspective and the positive aspects of the trip would become apparent. Eventually I wrote an article entitled “Only in India.” It was an attempt to write a balanced story, mixing in the good experiences with the bad one. The article was wishy washy and the comments I received reflected that. Then I came across one of Tim Cahill’s personal travel rules: the worse the experience, the better the story, therefore there are no bad experiences. My mission became clear – write a good story about a bad trip. “Only in India-While I’ll Never Return” explains the reasons why and I hope it will be useful if you are considering a trip there.
