Where the Stars Disappear
Travels Through Asia: where the stars disappear is the discovery of the traditions and history of different cultures in Sikkim, Ladakh and Orissa – now Odisha, China, the Caucasus, Nepal and Myanmar, recounted through the filter of illness. Hermann Hesse once wrote: “Where borders vanish, we find Nirvana. The beloved stars of nostalgia still shine brightly for me.” Similarly, this book describes the feelings and emotions experienced during the voyage of life. The desire to cross the boundaries of space and time may stem from a deep-rooted restlessness, but one may find contentment in the knowledge that it is possible to find happiness by just looking at the stars.
