From famous world heritage spots, grasslands, and religious sculptures to gastronomic eats and colorful festivals, India is just a mixture of different elements.

Indeed, diversity makes India one of the most engaging, spiritual, and life-affirming countries. While it is considered a go-to destination, it is not for the unnerved tourist. Those who have visited the country, at one time or another, would say they have been stunned by what they had seen. For a country marked by poverty, noise, and overpopulation, there is so much to be shocked about.

But behind this unattractiveness, India has a lot to be proud of. Indian people are naturally friendly. Food has a quaint appeal with the adoption of modern development. Various industries from textile and steel, mining and agriculture, manufacturing and export to arts and entertainment support its economy.
