INDIA

Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw stated that “On the face of India are the tender expressions which carry the mark of the Creator’s hand.”

It is impossible not be stunned by ‘incredible India’- a country that basks in its glory of grandeur and majesty. A storehouse of beauty and tradition, it is a country of glorious history that gave birth to Aryabhatt and Brahmagupta, gifted the world the concept of zero and the wealth of yoga and Ayurveda. The birthplace of Hinduism and Buddhism, India is a magical country with an aura of mystery and myth – the land where not only the magnificent Taj Mahal stands proudly but is dotted with ancient exquisite historical monuments all over.

India, the seventh largest country in the world with its 29 states and 7 union territories covers an area of about 3,287,590 square kilometer. It boasts every kind of landscape imaginable and is blessed with an amazing variety of flora and fauna. The rugged, snow-capped mountainous Himalayan region in the northern part of the country speckled with temples and monasteries stretches from the east to the west. The wind-blown sands of the Thar Desert with the magnificent fortresses, temples and village oases on them have a hypnotic effect. The sun-drenched Indo-Gangetic plain watered by the Ganges, the Yamuna and the Brahmaputra offer a fresh breath of nature with its lush beauty. The peninsular India that begins with the Deccan in the north and ends with Cape Comorin stands to enrapture the imagination of nature enthusiasts with its astonishing scenery of table lands, hills, hillocks and valleys covered with thick forests. Its 7517 km long coastline is flecked by countless dazzling beaches. There are two groups of spectacular islands - the Lakshadweep in the Arabian Sea and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in the Bay of Bengal.
