First Hours in India

How do I describe our first Indian impressions? After flying on the world’s most divine airline, Air Emirates, landing in Dubai Airport, which as my friend Susan says is like Las Vegas on steroids, and after 30 hours of travel, we landed in Kolkata Airport.

Kolkata Airport has the human touch down to a science. Dirty, beat, confusing and befuddling, our first impressions of Kolkata were, shall I say, impressive. Yet, it was only a foretaste of what was to come.

The ability to find pleasure in the smallest of incidents is a unique Indian personality trait. The genuine smiles, the lilted demeanor, the kind and unaffected ways. Not at all childlike or naïve. In fact, a kind of wisdom that comes from knowing what’s important in life is etched on the faces of the Indian people.

If it’s in the food, I’m already hungering for it.

We have arrived in Kolkata India

Here is how we were greeted. Hundreds of faces staring at us in unison.

Just outside this area, old women in sarees placed their hands together in the Indian greeting and murmured “Namaste.” Then, gently pressed against me with their hands outstretched for money.

I gave them money.

They were old women, gentle and, in their Indian way, very beautiful in their sarees.

I asked our driver if I had done the right thing, and he smiled, “She’s a professional.” 

“A professional what?” I asked.

“A professional beggar.”

Uh oh. I think I'm in trouble. I already can't resist these people!


Joette laughingI am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

Joette is not a physician and the relationship between Joette and her clients is not of prescriber and patient, but as educator and client. It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information Joette presents. Homeopathy doesn't "treat" an illness; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. Joette believes that the advice and diagnosis of a physician is often in order.
