India

As you’ve probably heard many times, India is not one country, but a collection of many. Traveling the length and breadth of India would take more than a lifetime, and the life experiences will make you wiser, stronger, and resilient. 🙂 I have only explored few parts of this beautiful country.

Namaste India: Travel stories from India

↑ Konkan, on the west coast of India, offers many tranquil beaches.

Lonely planet calls India a “Litmus Test” for travellers. Indeed, any traveller will realize in the first few minutes that their five senses (and maybe the sixth too) are going to be on full-on alert during their time here. Not many are used to this constant exposure to all your senses and it teaches you a lot about yourself and your place in the world. No wonder many people think travelling in India is an eye-opener, a spiritual experience. However, you’ll realize soon enough, once you are out of this exotic and spiritual mindset, that India has a lot to offer even to the most seasoned traveller. Traveling the length and breadth of India would take more than a lifetime, and the life experiences will make you wiser, stronger, and resilient.

I grew up in India before moving to Canada and I’ve managed to see only few parts of this amazing country. Come join my travels!

Traveller, musician, blogger, bureaucrat. In that order. I'm very interested in trying new things and my interests are diverse. Food, people, places, technologies - I like them all. Whatever I do, I approach life with optimism and strive to make each day happy and fruitful.
