INDIA – the very name conjures images of vibrant colours, mysticism, royalty; an amalgam of religions, a kaleidoscope of art and culture, all of which find expression in the beautiful temples, sculptures and monuments. India is undoubtedly one of the most diverse nations in the world. It is a land of credible paradoxes and yet underlying the contrasts, there are patterns of continuity, an indefinable essence that is quintessentially Indian.
Much of India's fascination perhaps lies in the fact that it is both a young nation and an ancient country rolled into one where past and present coexist in a beautiful mosaic. A land of myriad images, the Indian subcontinent takes you from the towering snow capped Himalayas to the great Indo-Gangetic plains, the blazing Thar desert to the placid backwaters of Kerala, the enchanting walking trails of Mashobra to the sapphire blue seas and miles of golden beaches of Goa. Travelling through the country is not just a journey but an experience of a lifetime. The rich tapestry that is India cannot be captured in a single word or expression. At times unbelievable, at times overwhelming and always Incredible!
For a first time visitor, India can be overwhelming at first, but she gradually unfolds her rare delights. You may find it in the centuries old temples, tombs and forts, in the exquisite crafts still made in traditional ways, in the riot of colours and aromas of its bazaars or in the sudden glimpses of its serene beauty that filters through the hustle and bustle of daily life. To explore India is to discover unending secrets to the mystery of life, to enjoy India is to celebrate the very fact of quintessential living.
