There seem to be a lot of misconceptions about India lately, and that is the reason why I wanted to reintroduce this beautiful country to tourists, travelers and adventure-seekers. India is not only rich in culture; it has the richest culture of all the other countries I’ve been to.
India’s current population is about 1.3 billion, many of whom believe in about 330,000 gods and goddesses. The caste system is still existence, and poverty can be seen everywhere, even in highly-developed cities and tourist areas.
I’ve travelled India from the cities to rural areas to even the far-flung provinces that power, water and telephone lines have yet to reach. That’s part of the advocacy I have about letting people see India from a different perspective than what is being reported. Sure, our economy is booming, and we’re considered a success by international standards, but tourism has always been a questionable aspect of the country.
India is a magnanimous country with rich history and tradition, hospitable people, and some of the most amazing sights you can behold. As a traveller, you can start by visiting the most famous sights in the country—the Taj Mahal, for example, shows an unending devotion. There’s also the Lotus Temple, the Gateway of India, the Agra Fort, the City Palace in Jaipur, the Ganges River and the Victoria Memorial.
India will never run out of places to attract travellers. My only real concern is that more and more travellers are being attracted by other places and other cultures, not knowing they are missing out a lot by skipping this country.
Historians, writers, politicians and other eminent personalities across the Globe have greatly appreciated India and its contribution to rest of the world. Though these remarks are only a partial reflection of the greatness of India, they certainly make us feel proud of our motherland.
“We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made!
