Africa - My Story

Author Name: Amitabha Gangopadhyay | Format: Paperback | Genre : Travel | Other Details

Why do I keep coming back to Africa? It is not the safari; it’s the wilderness of the continent that attracts me like a magnet. Its unkempt nature, unforgiving wilderness, red earth, Maasai people, beautiful acacia trees and blooming jacaranda—they all define my love for Africa. “I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills.” Yes, Out of Africa is an epic movie that has shaped my thoughts and inspired me to travel to Africa over and over again. No matter how many times I travel to Africa, my quest for Africa never ends. Sitting alone in the bushland on a moonlit night, I hear the night birds chirping and an owl hooted somewhere. I feel the moon drops silently dripping down on me. I love it! A star-filled African night whispers in my ears—“Stay with me.” I close my eyes. I hear Denys Finch in Out of Africa saying, “I don’t want to live someone else’s idea of how to live.” Denys was so right! Yes, that is the Africa I fell in love with, and that is my story I would love to share with you.
