Season’s Greetings!

With the onset of the Spring season, the lush green landscape of India is in full bloom, truly a feast for the eyes as you drive through the blossoming flowers and fields enjoying the many sites and sounds of India.

This week’s edition of the India Update will showcase for you the steeped in history Orchha, a cruising experience on the holy Ganges, the vibrant Goa Carnival and many more interesting facets of Incredible India. We do hope this would be useful for you in planning new and exciting India sojourns.

We are also delighted to share with you this most heart warming and humbling experience for all of us, our third Flight of Fantasy through our foundation “Shaping Lives” that recently operated between Jaipur & New Delhi. Children from our NGO partner’s Disha & Ladli had a memorable overnight trip to Delhi, what was truly touching was happiness and joy we could bring to them through this small and simple initiative. Also my heartfelt thanks to you for your encouraging words and support in furthering this endeavour of our Shaping Lives foundation.

Look forward to meeting with many of you at the ITB Berlin next week; we are in Hall 5.2B at booth no. 213.

Most warmly
Arjun Sharma
Managing Director
