Season’s Greetings!!

As said truly by Mr. Mark Twain, “ This is indeed India! The one land that all men desire to see and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the globe combined.”, the experience India offers is enormous, and we attempt to catch glimpses of those experiences in our India Updates.

This edition gives you glimpses of the colourfull Rajasthan through Udaipur’s Devigarh fort, a spectacular boutique fort hotel; Jaipur’s Jaigarh Fort; and the Jaipur Literature festival which is an extravaganza of culture and delight for its visitors. What’s more, A tempting recipe for authentic Indian beverage – Lassi; The President’s house in New Delhi, a beautiful imperial edifice; and Thimpu, the capital of our gorgeous neighbour country Bhutan.

We hope this issue showcases to you some more new facets of our country India. Do keep writing to us, we love to hear from you.

Most Warmly
