The first thing that strikes you about Bali is its art. Its the only island in Indonesia where Hinduism is predoninant and there are temples in every nook and corner and every house has a courtyard filled with temples. But what strikes you are the towering sculptures and statues on the road , inspired by Ramayana and Mahabharata. The giant , Ghatotkacha, is one of the first you would encounter when you step out of the airport. The other characters are Bheema, Karna among others. "Take a picture madam," said my taxi driver ," The roads are going to be widened soon and all these may be removed or destroyed." Sounds familiar, doesnt it !
