This Is India
Excuse Me, is This India?
Do you enjoy travelling, yet, are not fond of tours? Do not fear travelling in India alone. Hiring a car and driver (one who knows the areas) is quite economical and the big plus is that you can stop when you wish. Flying is not expensive either. Yes, you shall encounter poverty, but having visited over one hundred countries, I ask where you might travel without engaging some poverty? (save the Antarctic) Another plus is that both Sri Lanka and Nepal are easily reached from India.
India is a fascinating country. Its history and civilisation can be traced back to nearly 5000 years. Since time immemorial, it has excited the curiosity of many people not only from within the country, but also from distant lands, particularly because it offers something of interest to the people from all walks of life.
