Indi Garcha (2015)

“in my opinion, one of the greatest tragedies in human development has been the reliance upon religious dogma from all faiths when it concerns the universe, science, morality, evolution, civil rights i.e. women, slavery etc. We really need to take stock and grow as a race, if we are to survive…” 

(Indi Garcha)

Footnote: Indi has been a friend of some of us at Guru Boutique since 1972 – and still is to this very day. I consider him to be a person who has transcended the path he was expected to follow and who don’t just blindly accept the destiny/religion/life he was born into but asks questions in order to seek some sort of personal truth. Whilst I don’t always agree with all he says, I do agree that extremists and zealots of all kinds usually exacerbate the ills of this world.

His work as an engineer has taken him all over the planet, so he has had experience of many cultures and many situations and therefore it follows that he will have learned such a lot about human nature.

Yet, from what I have observed, he always seems to comes back to Darlington to hang out with family/friends/people he knows from his earlier life, with whom he still has a bond. No-one should ever take Indi for granted or think they have him sussed, because it’s a certainty that they haven’t.

About Beryl Maughan Hankin

I'm Beryl the proprietor and scribe of Guru Boutique. Guru is an independent, fair trade business established almost five decades ago and located in Darlington, UK. I work there with my best friends Tony and Colin. In addition to my other duties, I manage social media for the shop and for myself. Growing up back in the 1940s I never could have imagined such a thing as the internet, let alone social media. However, here I am over seventy-five years later being able to communicate with the world via such things. To quote Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead, "What a long strange trip this has been" - and it's not over yet! (Guru Boutique's logo is based on a Mayan harvest deity and my personal profile logo is by Mr Derek Hargreaves).
