Today entailed a visit to the archeological site of Lothal. The civilization dates back 4,000 years. These remnants of this town invite the imagination to “remember” the early life of trading beads and jewelry. It seemed a utilitarian existence.

The day still touches an ancient part of me. It feels more than looking into a reflecting pond. It is it more like stepping into the reflective waters of history: imagine to remember; to immerse into a dream of the past.
