There is something mesmerizing, magical and mystical about watching the sun sink into the horizon at the ocean’s edge as the day turns into night. In India, it is no less alluring. Locals and visitors gather to watch this daily miracle. Some prepare for the event with prayers.

About ninagrandiose

I am based in NYC but travel regularly to India and Mexico. Both of these countries feel like home. In India I scour the country in search of fabulous textiles to incorporate into my clothing designs. I sit back and let the ambiance and wonder of India seep into my consciousness so I can be inspired to write about what India is for me. I bring a limited number of people to India on exclusive and intimate tours of my favorite hangouts. In Mexico I take in the natural beauty that surrounds me and dance the night away. I constantly give thanks for all this and am pleased to share it all with you.
