Season’s Greetings!

Travelling through India is not a journey, it’s like an experience that will inspire you to rediscover this land, where we say ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ meaning Guest is God!!

This India Update beckons the passionate travellers to pick on the breathtaking views of the Pokhara valley nestled in the enchanting Nepal or experience the magic of Udaipur on an exciting cycling tour of the city, visit the medieval unknown city of Narnaul or take fun in the fascinating architecture of the shaking minarets of Ahmedabad.

Festivals in India are a colourful mosaic that have a vibrance like none other. Celebrate the festival of Good over Evil “Dussehra” with fireworks and drama or enjoy the Indian breeze with some Hot Air ballooning in Karnataka this year. Also for you in this issue, is the famous Chicken Tikka recipe and the Indian Sitar in the Incredible facts about India.

Happy Reading. Have an Incredible week!

Most warmly
Arjun Sharma
