Excursion

The land that continues to mesmerize with its larger than life image. The aura that is spellbinding, captivating and fascinating. A land where spiritualism breathes in and out, where Gods reside, where everyday is an occasion, where the forts and palaces still echo the bugle of victory, where you witness the arena of intellectual exchange, where the mustard fields delight you and the village life attracts you.

India is a world in itself. It is too vast and too diverse for any complete description. It is in the midst of a great transformation. It is an extraordinary land and every journey to this land brings to light some new facets, local legends or contemporary development scenes.

No nation has probably accumulated such a vast experience or endured so long as a civilization. As with knowledge, the more one delves, the deeper becomes the mystery and one finds that there is much more to know.
