Joyous Greetings!

India Update today celebrates its first anniversary and we are absolutely delighted to share it with you as you are a part of our extended travel family. It’s been a delightful journey writing to all my dear friends and colleagues across the world, where we endeavored to bring you close to a land that leaves you mesmerized with every milestone crossed, presenting to you ‘India in its myriad colours’.

Many such diverse colours are showcased this week, presenting a traveller’s delight- Alwar district of Rajasthan, a shopper’s delight – the buzzing flea market at Anjuna Beach in Goa, a nature lover’s paradise - hill town of Kalimpong and nothing more like it is the Beach festival of Puri, where sand arts are truly a mesmerizing sight at this cultural extravaganza. Also featured are the adorning Tangkha painting art recognized to Buddhism and a recipe that can water your mouth by its very name, the delicious Shammi Kababs, every foodie’s delight in India and across the borders.

Hope you enjoy reading this edition that comes to you with immense joy and pleasure!
