India is vast country. Its geography represents
diversity in all its forms: people, religions, customs and traditions,
clothes, dialects, habits. She begins with the highest peaks and descends
across mighty fastnesses and rolling pains to submerge in not one but three
seas. Beaches surround her coastal belts, and in Rajasthan there is the
stillness of the Thar Desert. The great Seas, a still desert, the might of
the Himalayas, India has all this and more. Backwater canals and tropical
forests, rugged hill towns, river estuaries, wooded swamps and glacial
meadows. Regions unattainable by road, places unexplored.
The suavity of city dwellers contrasts sharply with Aboriginal tribes who
still lead their sheltered existence unhindered by the spread of
civilization. India's history goes back to 3200 BC when Hinduism was first
founded. Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity
and Islam all exist within the country today of more than one billion
people. Today's visitors revel in the fantastic breadth of history left by a
stream of dynasties and conquerors. British Raj relics, Portuguese churches,
Rajput forts, Mughal palaces, Buddhist stupas, Jain and Hindu temples all
create an unforgettable, incredible diverse horizon. Apart from these
cultural landmarks, India's calendar is studded with extraordinary festivals
that offer rare, highly charged experiences that could be the highlight of
our trip. This is the moment when you become more than just a tourist and
actually penetrate the living traditions of India and its people.
Indians are considered very hospitable. An Indian welcome is thousands of
years old, and the simple Aarti ritual that honours all guests as
manifestations of God, has been refined over centuries. To the Indian, the
country is a harmonious whole, which he does not question. To the foreigner,
the diversity is a puzzling complexity, which he seeks to understand. Come
see the dances of India, witness the pageant of its festivals, taste the
spirit of its culinary celebrations, or admire objects shaped by hand by
master artisans and you will experience some of the cultural mores of a
country that boasts a civilisation five thousand years old...
