Demystifying India is a perpetual work-in-progress and for many travelers that’s precisely what makes her so deeply addictive. Ultimately, it’s all about surrendering yourself to the unknown: this is the India that nothing can quite prepare you for because its very essence – its elusive soul – lies in its mystery. Love it or Loathe it – and most visitors seesaw between the two- India will jostle your entire being and no matter where you go or what you do, it’s a place you’ll never forget.
