India Update Issue 24 | Apr 2011 LPTI
Season’s Greetings!

Incredible! There’s simply no other word that convincingly captures the enigma that is India. With its myraid diversity, from snow clad mountains to sun-washed beaches, tranquil temples to feisty festivals, lantern-lit villages to software-techno cities, it’s hardly surprising that this country has been referred as the world’s most multidimensional. Love it or loathe it, India promises to jostle you and no matter where you go or what you do, it’s a place you’ll never forget.

With India’s uniqueness buzzing in every part of our India update, here is our new edition to mesmerize your senses. On showcase this time is the birder’s paradise Bharatpur, strategically located on the Golden Triangle circuit; the gorgeous and adventurous Lakshadweep Islands; the heritage village of Pragpur at the Himalayan foothills; birthplace of Lord Krishna- Mathura; and the Chidambaram Temple of Tamil Nadu.

To allure you more is our exclusive signature experience of Desert Camping near Jaisalmer, Rajasthan and the colourful introduction to the Hemis Festival of the mystical land Ladakh. Know more about this mystical land India through our Interesting facts section, featuring this time is Saree, the national outfit of Indian women and Vechur Cow who is also a Guinness World Record holder. Hope this edition gives you a taste of diverse palettes of India.

A somber note on the passing away of the Maharaja Bhawani Singh of Jaipur, we would like to pay glowing tributes to the late Maharaja Bhawani Singh who was the symbol of dignity and courtesy and one who was synonymous with the highest tradition of India’s rich cultural heritage.

Have an Incredible Week!

Most Warmly
Arjun Sharma
Managing Director
