The sun filters in through the windows. In the distance, early morning prayers can be heard from the surrounding temples and mosques. In a few minutes the city would be fully awake, the sunshine pounding down on everything it touches, clearing the morning haze. This is the scenario of just any other morning, right? I’m sorry to tell you, but you’re mistaken. This particular morning described here is a bit different and special. Because that is what a regular morning in India is like.India is a country bustling with life. Every road and street, nook and corner, you see, there is an essence that can’t be missed. There is much diversity throughout the country, each state with its own unique traditions and cultural customs that give the lively country a soul. You can sense the diversity around here in many ways. In the Himalayas, you would see beautiful snow capped mountains that will take your breath away. In Hyderabad, you will find beautiful pearls glittering under the sun. You could smell the aromas of samosas coming from a quaint home in New Delhi, or taste the chaat and the multiple flavors that’ll attack your mouth as you stand in the streets of Mumbai. You could touch the smooth marble of the Taj Mahal in Agra, which is one of the seven wonders of the world.No matter where you’re from, there are some things that everyone must experience in their lifetime. Like taking part in the festival of color, Holi, where you get doused in powder and liquid dyes. Or visiting the many forts and temples scattered across the sub-continent.
You can even go see Bengal Tigers, among other creatures of the wild in one of the 515 sanctuaries and national parks located in India. From the mountains to the beaches, and everything in between, there is so much to explore, find, and see. It’s easy to get lost in the excitement of the people here – whether you’re a local or are here simply to visit. You will find yourself in the only country filled with so much of culture and diversity. The only country with the great name of India.
