Season’s Greetings!

From the foothills of the Himalayas to the backwaters of Kerala, the slums of Mumbai and Kolkata to the ayurveda ashrams, or the beaches of Goa.... India has it all to fascinate, shock and excite at the same time.

This edition takes you around the corners of India where a charming city, Guwahati welcomes you to begin a North eastern journey of India, from the west is the Kashid beach of Maharashtra state which is a perfect getaway to laze around, relax and soak in the sun on the Konkan coast. Experience the rural life of Anegundi village of the southern state of Karnataka, or make way for the festive mania of the north in the Bateshwar city near Agra.

The uncanny contrasts one can find here, is unmatched to anywhere in the world. Learn about Dargah, a Muslim Sufi Shrine in our What’s new section and read about the very famous Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple of Trivandrum from the Monuments of India section in this edition.

So, strap your seatbelt for a roller coaster ride of extraordinary culture & traditions, ancient landmarks & intimidating fortresses. A truly unforgettable journey!

Hope you enjoy this India Update as much as we did putting it together for you. Have an Incredible week!
