Season’s Greetings!!

India is a celebration of colours, food, festivals and people and here we make an attempt to bring alive the various components of her beauty in our sections. If the green tea gardens and toy train of Darjeeling reminds us of exotic nature’s splash, then the walking tour of ancient town of Mylapore - Chennai reiterate the longevity of India’s history, art and culture.

You can also take a break and feast on Indian flavours at Indian Accent – a finest Delhi restaurant or try your hand in the kitchen for the relishing Indian Egg Curry or join Indians while they celebrate the festival of Raksha Bandhan for some finger-licking sweets and savouries at their homes. When in Mumbai, choose to visit the famous Mount Mary Church with centuries old history to keep you bounded or visit the film city to meet the popular man ‘Ram Singh Chauhan’ who boasts of the longest moustaches in the world.

Hope you enjoy reading this newsletter. Your feedbacks and suggestions are welcome and so is criticism that can help us improve, so do keep writing into us, we love to hear from you!!

Have an incredible week ahead!

Warm Regards
