My stay in India was much more comfortable this time around than two years ago. Infrastructure is improving. My hotel was quite nice. In fact, it's as nice if not nicer than what I have at home.
I stayed at the Iris Hotel, where the rest of the speakers of JAX India stayed. We were on Brigade St., the happening street in town. It is the equivalent of Michigan Ave. in Chicago. Here's a view of it at night with all of its trendy shops and bars.
Here's a view of it out of my window in the morning.
Here's a view of it out of another window. I was shocked.
So I zoomed in. There I was, brushing my teeth in a nice western style hotel, and the next lot over is another valuable human being, brushing his teeth with his fingers.
While I was sleeping in a comfortable bed, they were sleeping on the floor with a few sheets.
While I had running water, they had to use buckets.
I pray that I can be wise and loving in leveraging what I have to help those who have less.
