INDIA

INCREDIBLE INDIA!
So vast, so old, so historical, so varied, so multicultural, so complex- almost anything I say about it is certain to be inaccurate.
28 states and 8 union territories. 22 languages recognised in the Constitution. 1.4 billion people. 2000 ethnic groups. 6 religions practised by 4 million people or more.
Some 30% of the world’s economy was in India prior to 400 years of British invasion. Now that they have gone, India is growing again.
For the visitor, the options enormous. From camels in the desert to forests in the wettest place on earth. Himalayan mountains, mighty rivers, endangered wildlife, Moghul history, frentic cities, poverty and wealth. The Golden Temple. Delhi. The Taj Mahal. Too much food. Cricket. And some serious moustaches.
1st trip, Mumbai, 2004; 2nd a bit of the north in 2019. 3rd ? covid-cancelled!
