I Am the Ocean
Samita Sarkar thought she was destined to spend her entire life running. Never giving herself a moment’s rest, she studied hard and graduated from university with top grades, and then promptly began a tireless job search. But although she thought that she had done everything by the book, life still hadn’t given her any answers. She knew that God had a plan, but what was it? Stricken with anxiety while facing midsummer heat and sizable life decisions, the thrifty twenty-something Canadian—who had never before travelled for travel’s sake—purchased a discount bus ticket for what she thought would be a few weeks of reprieve in The United States. Embarking on her journey with nothing but a small suitcase, a broken handbag, a killer manicure and a copy of "The Bhagavad Gita," Samita would spend her days wandering streets and beaches, and her nights in jostling buses or on cramped couches. Marvelling at the beauty around her, Samita finally discovered what the world has to offer to those who stop running, while learning lessons that would set the course of the rest of her life.

I enjoyed reading about the array of characters Samita meets on her solo journey and how many people can relate to her and assume things of her. Reading this book was a breeze and it offered me an opportunity to reflect on my spirituality and my own travel journey.

Samita’s book is more than a travel documentary; from her home in Canada to several cities along the east coast of America. It’s also a look at a young lady’s life and the decisions she has made to shape her into the person she is today.
The book she dedicated to The Supreme Controller, her friend and well-wisher, Lord Krishna.
I am a seventy plus older man, a Christian, and I commenced reading with an open mind. As the chapters rolled by I enjoyed Samita’s stories about the people she met, her sight-seeing and I must admit I admired her outlook on life. Also the way she treated the people with respect, as she describes those who crossed her path. 
I recommend this book to all that are open to understanding how some other people choose to direct their life. I should say as well that I found “I Am the Ocean” a very interesting read.
