Dear Pankaj, I have arrived safely back in Australia after the most memorable 1 month of my life...in India. As a little girl I dreamt of going to India and riding elephants and camels, and thanks to you, my little-girl dream has now come true. I can't express in words how much this trip has meant to me on a spiritually personal level...
