The day Prakriti was born...

Mis dias en las montanhas quedaron incompletos, y hoy, desde la selvatica, humeda y lluviosa malasia (hermosa... ), subiendo mis fotos a picasa recorde algo que quiero grabar en este sitio. Mi nombre.
En el auto, los dias que vivi como local... rafting, zoaling, y casi paragliding en los valles de Manali y Kullu, con dos hermanos y sus amigos, la musica a todo volumen en el auto entre montanhas que recuerdan nuestros Yungas, con nieves y flores a la vez... fuimos a comprar un nuevo estereo para el auto, y ahi fue que Prashant dijo... "deberias tener un nombre indio" (indian name), y pues, luego de pensar en dos... (que ni recuerdo) dio con mi nombre. Prakriti, palabra en sanscrito -usada en hindi- que significa naturaleza... por la forma en que soy y lo que amo.
Estoy completamente enamorada del nombre!, aparte de que suena super dificil (pero mas facil de pronuniciar que flavia para muchos alla), es diferente...
Prakriti nacio en las montanhas, como yo, respirando aire puro y tomando agua de la pila... por que viene directo del deshielo...
El dia que Prakriti nacio, por cien y mas razones y palabras, mi idea de la vida en la india, sus costumbres, religiones, castas y movimiento social/familiar cambio. Es diferente si, pero no necesariamente diferente es malo.
Supongo que ahora esa ninha india viaja conmigo aprendiendo un poco mas de la gente distinta... pero la tengo conmigo... y siempre se va a quedar.

My days in the mountains were uncomplete in this blog, and today from the humid and rainy forest in malaysia (beautiful), uploading my pictures in picasa i remembered something that i want to record in these words. My name.
In the car, the days i lived as a local... rafting, zoaling and almost-paragliding in Manali and Kullu valleys, with two sibblings and their friends, with music at loud as it gets, in the car, among mountains that remind our bolivian Yungas, with snow and flowers all at once... we went to by a new stereo for the car, and there was where Prashant said..."you should have an indian name", and after two choices (that i dont even remember) he found it. Prakriti, sanskrit word -used in hindi- that means nature... because of the way i am and what i love.
I am completely in love of the name!, besides its hard pronuntiation (although seems to be easier to pronounce than flavia for some people there), is just different...
Prakriti was born in the mountains, like me, breathing pure air and drinking water from the pipe... cause it comes straight from the melting ice... the day Prakriti was born, for one hundred and more reasons, my idea of living in India, with its traditions, religions, casts and social/family interactions, changed. It is different, yes, but that is not necessarly wrong.
I guess this girl is now traveling with me, learning a bit more from different people, but she is with me... and will stay here.
