India

THE LAND OF MYSTERY AND DIVERSITY

Home to some of the oldest world civilizations and empires, India has been present on trade routes since ancient times.

With a billion inhabitants, 29 states, 7 territories, 22 official languages, 100 dialects, 4 major religions, the largest pantheon in the world, India is a country where diversity means it all.

Colorful and multiple, India vibrates at the pace of a powerful economic development and, at the same time, precariousness that is tangible outside major urban centers.

Rich, modern, traditional, mystical, happy, SMILING and GRAND, India is certainly overwhelming. It offers exceptional encounters and a humanity in its raw state.

Humility, non-violence and respect for elders are universal values in India. Sharing and community are also very important. People generally focus more on the needs of the group than on those of the individual. Indian communication tends to be indirect, very respectful and highly courteous.

This is indeed India!
The land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendour and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of hundred nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of traditions, whose yesterday’s bear date with the modering antiquities for the rest of nations-the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for alien prince and alien peasant, for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor, bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the world combined.
