To many India is the greatest mystery of all, a magic land wrapped in treasures, rich with the promise of great journeys. Those promises hold true and beyond the veil lies a vibrant, living nation. Welcome to India.
India is a land of many wonders. Where indeed does one begin to speak of its many glories? To begin with, there are the attractions that have gained international fame. The Taj Mahal- recently celebrated 350 fine years of its existence- is perhaps the greatest of them all. It's a poem carved in marble, the greatest monument to love ever built. The Indian subcontinent is replete with world heritage temples like Khajuraho. India is the land of the Buddha, who changed the course of at least one-third of humanity and founded a great religion- Buddhism. There is the enduring culture, a deep tradition of non- violence and an ability to absorb a multitude of influences. These have endeared India to all.
India's cultural refinements go far beyond custom alone. Here is a felt and lived culture which has existed seamlessly for thousands of years. Heritage has also been preserved over millennia, yet here is a modern country that is taking rapid strides on the economic front.
India is atmospheric too. Take in the aroma and bustle of Indian bazaars. Take a holy dip with a million people during the Kumbha Mela. A long history of kingly rule has left its own unique heritage. The experiences are infinite.
Above all, India is the friendliest of nations. Indeed, hospitality is a fine, old tradition here. "Atithi Devo Bhava", we say- the guest is God. Come and experience it for yourself.
