The Lonely Planet says, “India will sideswipe you with its size, clamour and diversity”. Absolutely true! India is a land of stunning contrasts, many moods & diverse cultures. This blog is an attempt to capture India in all its varied hues. It will have a bit of everything: interesting anecdotes from history, political & social slugfests, perennially underperforming sportspersons, good food & hopefully a travelogue. Hop on & I promise you an interesting ride.
