About Me

Hi, I’m Barbara! I live in India -in the foothills of the Himalayas. In India, my friends call me Bharati. I shifted my life to India in November 2001 because I wanted to focus more on meditation and writing. I also enjoy studying Indian classical music and Sanskrit. I live a simple inward life. Writing blogs is a precious opportunity for me to share my thoughts and feelings with the world. “The world is my family” is an ancient Indian proverb. If you want to post any comments about my blogs, I would love to hear from you!

Best wishes
