Part of me has yet to return. India was so inspiring, it is going to take the usual week or so to adjust to a different context. There's something about the collective appreciation for the life of the ascetic and the quest to jettison the ego in favour of transcendent realities that lingers, and contrasts so sharply with Nigeria, where materialism and ego are gloriously ascendant.. Plus, the harmattan has been cold and dusty the past few days, resulting in both Bibi and I falling sick (at some point when I'm no longer living here, I will almost inevitably associate Nigeria with illness). I can't be bothered to catch up on the news - not that there seems to be any here at the moment. Someone told me there's been a re-structuring of the Federal Ministries, does anyone know about this?
