Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

"India is like Wonderland. In this other universe everyone seems mad and everything is upside down, back to front and infuriatingly bizarre . . ."In her twenties Sarah Macdonald backpacked around India and came away with a lasting impression of heat, pollution, and poverty. So when an airport beggar read her palm and told her she would return to India -- and for love -- she screamed, "Never!" and gave the country, and him, the finger. But eleven years later, the prophecy comes true. When the love of Macdonald's life is posted to India, she quits her dream job to move to the most polluted city on earth, New Delhi. For Macdonald this seems like the ultimate sacrifice for love, and it almost kills her, literally. Just settled, she falls dangerously ill with double pneumonia, an experience that compels her to face some serious questions about her own fragile mortality and inner spiritual void. "I must find peace in the only place possible in India," she concludes. "Within." Thus begins her journey of discovery through India in search of the meaning of life and death. Holy Cow is Sarah Macdonald's often hilarious chronicle of her adventures in a land of chaos and contradiction, of encounters with Hinduism, Islam and Jainism, Sufis, Sikhs, Parsis, and Christians, and a kaleidoscope of yogis, swamis, and Bollywood stars. From spiritual retreats and crumbling nirvanas to war zones and New Delhi nightclubs, it is a journey that only a woman on a mission to save her soul, her love life -- and her sanity -- can survive.

Book Description: Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 127 mm. Brand New Book. After backpacking her way around India, 21-year-old Sarah Macdonald decided that she hated this land of chaos and contradiction with a passion, and when an airport beggar read her palm and insisted she would come back one day - and for love - she vowed never to return. But twelve years later the prophecy comes true when her partner, ABC s South Asia correspondent, is posted to New Delhi, the most polluted city on earth. Having given up a blossoming radio career in Sydney to follow her new boyfriend to India, it seems like the ultimate sacrifice and it almost kills Sarah - literally. After being cursed by a sadhu smeared in human ashes, she nearly dies from double pheumonia. It s enough to send a rapidly balding atheist on a wild rollercoaster ride through India s many religions in search of the meaning of life and death. From the brain enema of a meditation retreat in Dharamsala to the biggest Hindu festival on earth on the steps of the Ganges in Varanasi, and with the help of the Dalai Lama, a goddess of healing hugs and a couple of Bollywood stars - among many, many others - Sarah discovers a hell of a lot more.
