Bali means serenity
If you really want to know the meaning of serenity then you should sit on the beach of Bali.
When I reached bali in the first week of November 2009, it became 1300 hrs. (i.e. 1:00 am in the mid night). I dumped my luggage in the hotel and could not resist myself to go to the beach at that mid night as the roaring of the sea was calling me. I asked the receptionist whether its safe to go to the beach at that time; the receptionist replied with smile and told "why dont you give a try, its so near, just behind the hotel". Then I rushed to the beach---it was just wonderful.
Its not only the palce of Bali but the people of Bali made Bali an unique place on earth. The heart and mind of the people of Bali made me something that I thought I would never come back home from there-----I belong to that place though I never been there before.
The full moon lasted for three days in Bali while I was there (it happens due to some geographical location of the place)----every night I went to beach------it was really a show on earth nobody can forget.
I saw a thing made of few bamboo sticks hanging downwards with heavy a disc made pf clay in the middle of those bamboo sticks; when air flows the disc hits the bamboo sticks and makes an amazing tune that no man can play on this earth; thats the real "Sound of the World"---I have ever heard in my life time. I wanted to bring that thing home but could not as all of my suitcases were already full of many wooden sculptures by that time. I dream one day I would go to Bali again to listen to that tune and bring that thing home.
