On Monday, in my Hindi class, I discovered that "kal", the Hindi word for yesterday, is the same as the word for tomorrow. When I asked my teacher about this she told me that in India time is circular. When you believe in reincarnation, then tomorrow is only the rebirth of yesterday. And I started to think about that too (actually the idea is really mind-blowing).
I am convinced that right now this is the place I am supposed to be. I don't know how I know it, but somehow I do. I don't know why I'm supposed to be here either - but I just know that I am, for some reason yet to be revealed to me. I also know that if I hadn't lived in India before, I would probably never have considered coming back here. So the Hindi concept of "kal" has had a lot of meaning for me this week. If time is circular, I was obviously meant to come to India "yesterday" because I was meant to be here "tomorrow".
