The home of one billion people is a hotpot of culture, tradition, history, adventure and landscapes. It’s no wonder millions throng here every year looking for a slice of the magic that dwells in many an unassuming corner of the country. There’s a tendency to believe that India revels in her poverty, but some of the largest metropolises are growing glitzier by the day, and the smartest brains are ever on the lookout for the next big thing. From the foothills of the Himalayas to the tip of the mainland, you can find delicacies or spiritual awakening. No matter how you identify, India will welcome you with open arms and care for you as one of her own.
