Search of the meaning of life and deathHoly Cow is Macdonald’s often hilarious chronicle of her adventures in a land of chaos and contradiction of encounters with Hinduism Islam and Jainism Sufis Sikhs Parsis and Christians and a kaleidoscope of yogis swamis and Bollywood stars From spiritual retreats and crumbling nirvanas to war zones and New Delhi nightclubs it is a journey that only a woman on a mission to save her soul her love life and her sanity can survive If I could give a book negative stars it would be this one This girl seemed to complain about everything she was experiencing in India I think I yelled at the book every chapter GO HOME I read the whole thing hoping to witness her enlightenment and was highly disappointed If you want a book which will give you insight about India read Motiba s Tattoos
