Season’s Greetings!

This time think about experiencing India in its natural form… India as it is! View the country in its totality: as a 5000 year old civilization besides being a modern nation. When a visitor opens his mind to see India as it is with its diversities, the country will unfold its charm. And what a variety! It provides the widest possible range of attractions from snow clad mountains to sun kissed beaches, diverse culture and an astonishing range of colours. Truly an experience to behold which starts from the first Namaste to the last goodbye!

This edition of India update, takes you through the city of many dimensions – Allahabad, the signature experience to unwind yourself on the banks of Ganges in Rishikesh and the historical marvel of Varanasi– the Ramnagar Fort. Not to miss the ongoing festive season here, know more about the Garba dance of Gujarat and Marwar festival of Jodhpur while you also explore the bazaars of Kolkata. Also try the irresistible lamb curry and get the taste of Indian authenticity on your dining table.

Hope you would enjoy the colour splash of this edition.

Have an incredible day!

Warm Regards
Arjun Sharma
