We must travel, if we can, to witness India not as a landmass, a flag, a static monolith nation-state but rather as a microcosm of the universe, a butterfly that cannot be caught, a multifaceted paradox that exists above and beyond its well-ordered, tamed borders. Because if we choose to open our eyes this way, travelling around India could be, apart from a pleasure to the soul, a necessary political project of our times.
