OUR COUNTRY! INDIA IS NOT A DESTINATION, ITS AN EXPERIENCE UNLIKE ANYTHING ELSE. MOST TRAVELLERS WILL AGREE WITH THIS. IT TRULY IS THE MOST DIVERSE COUNTRY EVER, WHERE LANGUAGES, CUSTOMS AND SIGHTS KEEP CHANGING FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER. EVEN AFTER SPENDING THREE DECADES HERE, WE ARE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO EXPLORING A QUARTER OF THE COUNTRY. WE HAVE WRITTEN ONLY ABOUT THOSE PLACES THAT WE HAVE VISITED RECENTLY IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. HOPE TO VISIT A LOT MORE SOON. IF YOU HAVE NOT VISITED YET, START MAKING YOUR PLANS SOON. WELCOME TO INCREDIBLE INDIA!
INDIA AT A GLANCE
- LANGUAGE : HUNDREDS OF LANGUAGES. HINDI IS THE NATIONAL LANGUAGE. ENGLISH IS NOW WIDELY SPOKEN IN URBAN AND SEMI URBAN AREAS. SOUTH INDIA SPEAKS ENGLISH TOO.
- CURRENCY : INDIAN RUPEE
- WEATHER : MOSTLY TROPICAL THROUGHOUT THE YEAR EXCEPT IN THE HILLS.
- MAJOR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS: NEW DELHI, KOLKATA, MUMBAI, CHENNAI AND BANGALORE
