    india is a large country so one has to choose for fifteen days something interesting , if you love food and culture avoid big cities and try to go to small towns and then you find there food life adventure shopping places, if you are a first time visitor , start from delhi which is the capital of india and an expensive city too , so spent time a little to know and then go to agra and then trip to rajasthan which will give you a mixture of all things palaces tribes food different artifacts, rajasthan is very colorful after every 200 kms you find a change in lifstyle , cloths food houses tribes place etc , remarkable , if you wish to make it very special do visit bazars of every city on your own street shopping is fantastic and very reliable , shop and haggling is required to shop in open space , this should be a casual, women wearing beautiful colorful costumes and men too .

    How can you really review a country as big as India? It's a little like reviewing 'Asia'. Different cultures and languages sprawl over the country as well as different cuisines. The South is generally more chilled and the North more frenetic, but it's all magical and fascinating.

    INDIA,the only subcontinent in the world.It is called so because it includes all the features of a continent like - India has mountains,seas,rivers,deserts,rocky areas,islands.Climatic conditions are moderate.There is winter,summer,rainy,autumn,spring.People here are very warm and welcoming.India is a multi-religious country.There are Hindus,Muslims,Sikhs,Christians,Parsis and many more.Therefore there are number of traditions,rituals,customs followed.about 75 languages are spoken across the country.Food here is authentic,it speaks about the culture.Every cuisine has its own beautiful tale.India is the only country with the highest % of vegetarians.

    India, the only country which is colorful.That reminds me of Bollywood where there is dance,emotion,songs,family,drama,tragedy,fantasy,fight,old revenge,sequels and rebirth.Other countries invest in India to grow their business as there are intelligent,hard-working people in the world.

    This is probably the only country in the world which is multi-religious,multi-talented,multi-cultured,multi-cuisine,multi-lingual,friendly and adaptable.As once quoted by a conquerer (this might not be the exact words but it is pretty much a gist) "To break India,break its heritage which is impossible till the end of the world".

    Incredible country with unparalleled diversity of cast, creed and faith. India with its rich topographical and cultural diversity is a place woth visiting. There are hills, beaches, islands and deserts.

    India with its extreme diversity offers myriad experience to the travelers. India is home to several wildlife sanctuaries which are home to some rare and endangered species of plant and animal.

    India also has many renowned beaches in Goa and kerala as well as pristine islands in Andaman & Nicobar and Lakshwadeep. For desert you could head to Rajasthan which is visited by millions of domestic and international tourists. For Rajasthan there is one popular saying when it comes to international celebrities: Marriages may be made in heaven but the bills are payed in Rajasthan.

    Then there is the Himalaya which offer plenty of hiking and trekking activities. Exploring the far flung mountain range of Himalayas is a task that could take a lifetime to finish.

    Then there are forts and palaces sprinkled across the country which are a delight to behold. Then there are temples and ancient caves and Ayurveda and Yoga. You name it and you'll get it. India is definitely a place where you should be at least once in a lifetime.

    Loved and hated, beguiling and infuriating, beautiful and abject, India is truly the land of contrasts every other country is billed as. Dirt cheap, enormous, and startlingly diverse, the country's fabulous rail network makes the huge distances manageable and, indeed, pleasurable. Remember that India is not one country, indivisible, but instead more like a huge number of smaller countries held together by the world's most riotous form of democracy. This land is one of the cradles of civilization, and harder to comprehend than almost anywhere else on Earth. You do not understand India, you live it.

    I love my country, I love to see the unity in diversity, hop here and you meet someone new, hop there and meet another. always smiling, greeting and friendly..all belonging to different ethnic background,cultures, race and language...INDIA with its myriad mix of colors, smells, language and uniqueness pertaining to each different states, shows an observer the very microcosm of humanity at one place.

    India...is...everything. It has rugged mountains, desolate deserts, wild rainforests, arid plains, miles and miles of rice paddies and farmland. Huge cities with no space at all, and huge swatches of wide open space. I won't lie...it is dirty, poverty and unpleasant sites are not hidden out of view, it can be incredibly hot or unbearably cold, there is not really a concept of personal space, it is loud, and busy, and overwhelming. But if you can open yourself up to the brilliantly pulsing heart of South Asia, it is impossible not to fall in love.

    What I liked best about India was the diversity of things to see, do and experience. It's a place where many languages are spoken and many religions practised.

    Mumbai is colossal, a financial centre with an equally powerful film industry and great architecture. Bangalore is less attractive visually, but very fun with lots of good bars and an impressive tech scene. Then there's Goa for party beaches and Kerala for beautiful backwaters and canals and rolling green hills...

    I could go on, but hopefully I've established that you should visit and see for yourself!

    The history of India begins with evidence of human activity of Homo sapiens as long as 75,000 years ago, or with earlier hominids including Homo erectus from about 500,000 years ago. The Indus Valley Civilization, which spread and flourished in the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent from c. 3300 to 1300 BCE in present-day Pakistan and northwest India, was the first major civilization in South Asia. A sophisticated and technologically advanced urban culture developed in the Mature Harappan period, from 2600 to 1900 BCE. This Bronze Age civilization collapsed before the end of the second millennium BCE and was followed by the Iron Age Vedic Civilization, which extended over much of the Indo-Gangetic plain and which witnessed the rise of major polities known as the Mahajanapadas. In one of these kingdoms, Magadha, Mahavira and Gautama Buddha were born in the 6th or 5th century BCE and propagated their śramanic philosophies.
    Most of the subcontinent was conquered by the Maurya Empire during the 4th and 3rd centuries BCE. It became fragmented, with various parts ruled by numerous Middle kingdoms for the next 1,500 years. This is known as the classical period of Indian history, during which time India has sometimes been estimated to have had the largest economy of the ancient and medieval world, with its huge population generating between one fourth and one third of the world's income up to the 18th century.

    August 15 is a memorable day in the history of India. It was on August 15, 1947, that India won her independence after a long and bitter struggle. At the stroke of midnight, Jawaharlal Nehru read out his “Tryst with destiny” speech, proclaiming India's independence.

    Born In Singapore, half-raised in India, went scuba diving in the Andaman islands, sold everything I had to start a business there. The Andamans are beautiful. Corruption is there in the air that one breathes, and the noble humans are the poor there who work honest days for me. I want to repay them soon and pray they'll never know hunger. Come to India with a mind as open as the sky and you'll enjoy yourself.

    Can you describe it in a small paragraph? The world's second biggest population can be best imagined in aggregate a teenager wanting to pull in different directions all at once. It is at once exuberant, gloomy, combative and pacific. It is the world's finest living oxymoron, a country that exists and thrives despite itself. If you travel the breath of the country, almost every facet of life changes except the feeling that it is all organized chaos.

Description

Home to almost one-sixth of the planet's population, India is, in one word, overwhelming. Most visitors love it or hate it, sometimes both, often in the same day. India's poverty and personal space is not for the feint of heart, but neither is its stunning scenery, glorious monuments or pulsating cities. The cultural diversity in India is almost unimaginable; of its hundreds of languages, almost ... read more
30 have a million speakers each. The range of cultures, religions, food and architecture feels more like you're visiting 20 different countries. The major population centers of Delhi, Bangalore, and Mumbai each offer countless cultural magnets (Mumbai wouldn’t be the same without Bollywood). The iconic Taj Mahal, built by Shah Jahan for his favorite wife, is one of the most impressive buildings in the world. India’s national sport obsession is cricket; tickets to a match at one of the many major venues are easy to acquire. One highlight of an Indian vacation is the food. While Indian restaurants abroad tend to focus on a small representative sample, restaurants in India celebrate the best of all cuisines: Tandoori in the North, Goan seafood or Bengali sweets.
