Wish you a very Happy New Year 2012!

Thank you for all your support in the year 2011 and I hope your New Year started off with new desires, new dreams and new ideas. Stepping in 2012, I look forward to another mutually rewarding year for all of us.

This new year edition, I feature for you my favourite destination where I concluded my 2011 with a smile and welcomed 2012 with a big cheer – it’s the stunning Goa, a place that envelops everyone in its own colours.

The new year delight isn’t over yet, discover another Indian obsession – Bollywood; and for our resolution to make it a cleaner world- the Clean India Campaign, learn about it in our product update. Also focused is the Khimsar Fort of Rajasthan which is also a grand heritage hotel for you to experience the Indian hospitality and cultures. For more, dig in our other regular sections and read about the our first festival of 2012 – Pongal; Mahabharata, an ancient Indian Epic story; and the must try recipe of Indian Chicken Curry.

We hope this edition brings to you few more reasons of choosing India.

Have an Incredible Year!

Most Warmly
