THE PACE OF LIFE


It was so obvious from my experiences in India that despite what we would consider to be hardships in every day life, all the people we met were friendly and apparently content with life. Everywhere we were met by smiles and a willingness to shake hands and talk, some English language permitting.

The pace of life is noticeably slower than in the UK and everything operates at a different pace; service at meals, travelling from one place to another and even, I was told, the court system. It is choked with such a backlog of cases that it’s purportedly guesstimated they could take 400 years to clear. Now imagine waiting that long for a divorce!
