Best of India
Like many other westerner travellers I was alwys been attracted by ‘mysterious India’. Nowadays little remains of the exotic character that still lures the tourists of packed trips. More than mysterious, India is a very confusing and complex nation. Its religions, economy, history, society culture and above all its huge population present a kaleidoscopic array of diversity and complexity that can be quite hard to anyone who does not know this distant land.
But the attraction I always had for this country lay just in this diversity, expecially in its cultural distance that in our 'homologized' world of globalizations still survive although I fear not for long.
Travelling in India is not very appealing: the widespread poverty, the limited suitable accommodations, unreliable and uncomfortable transportation (riding an Indian train is an unforgettable adventure), polluted cities clogged with vehicles. But a journey though the cultures of India is an exciting and unforgettable trip. It presents a richness of diversity, unlike any other nation, with thousands of cultural variations established over millennia by the influences from outside on local religions and social systems.

Mountain landscape of Ladakh

India is a very rural country. Nearly 75% of its people live in rural areas, most often in villages where they engage in traditional types of farming.
Orissa the holy land of Hindus
Originally attracted by its celebrated temple architecture, Orissa surprisingly fascinated us with the beauty of its exuberant green countryside and the still largely rural character of the population of the many villages encountered during the trip, not mentioning the tribals, one of the major point to visit the country.
