INDIA: An Introduction
There is no place on earth like India and no two places in India are the same. India's sheer size and diversity are staggering. It is difficult even to find an adequate metaphor for this mystical and wild, yet delicate country.
Geographically, it is set apart from the rest of the Asia by the still evolving Himalayan mountain chain and Nepal - its neighboring country in the North. It is the South Asian subcontinent that touches the three large water bodies and is immediately recognizable on any world map. This thick, roughly triangular peninsula defines the Bay of Bengal to the east, the Arabian Sea to the west, and the Indian Ocean to the South.
India is an inspiration that you can find in the glimmer of the eyes of every Buddhist Lama and Hindu Pilgrims. The temples that were raised in the ancient times to house the Gods and Goddesses became the focal point for the community’s daily life - a quality you can see in the magnificent architecture of the countless temples and even in the monasteries, mosques and churches.
Being the home of the sacred River Ganges and the majority of Himalayan foothills whether your quest is to follow the holy Ganges to the sea or you are searching for Nirvana, or trekking around Ladakh & Sikkim, India's spirituality is unavoidable. An abundance of mountain ranges and national parks provide ample opportunity for eco-tourism and trekking.
In a country as diverse and complex as India, it is not surprising to find that people here reflect the rich glories of the past, the culture, traditions and values relative to geographic locations and the numerous distinctive manners, habits and food that will always remain truly Indian based on its five thousand years of recorded history.
