A trek through the traces of history

It is almost impossible to return to Earth. And yet, there is one more stop to make before the airport. Mysore city, a high-end shopping spot, houses the former royal palace, one wing of which still belongs to the heirs. The architecture, the brainchild of an Irish architect, and the kitsch decoration, leaves one mystified.

Allow your mind to drift towards the flocks of Indian children and teenagers, who have come to discover their history, as part of their education. Imagine wise teachers in smart uniforms, glowing adolescents, sporting a variety of colour; brows furrowed as they take in the words of their teachers; mischievous eyes on the watch for an opportunity to take a selfie with rare tourists. So many smiling images will be engraved upon your memory, of this trek through the traces of history.
