India Tourism

 

India is a remarkable destination with plethora of experiences. India is the epitome of the world. The large number of different cultures, knitted together in such a close and perfect manner, make India's diversity one of the wonders of the world. India is the combination of 28 states and 9 union territories, each state and union territory has its own language, culture, colours and in some respect religion also. Diversity is something that is as ubiquitous as the air we breathe in India. India is also known as subcontinent and has all the geographical areas including mountains, deserts, plains, plateaus and islands. It is framed by the daunting Himalayas in the north, the Arabian sea in the west, and the bay of Bengal in the east. The southern tip of India is washed by the waves of azure Indian ocean. India contains an astonishing variety of geographical features of deep rain forest, blistering deserts, fertile valleys and palm sprinkled silver beaches. The reason the region is referred to as a sub-continent is because the sheer number of different cultures, languages and customs present here are enough to create their own countries and make it reminiscent of a continent much like how Europe is small landmass but divided by numerous cultural and language made boundaries. The beauty of the country lies in the harmony between all these different cultures and how it has created a heterogeneous society that has come together and adapted many things from one another creating homogeneous mixture which is identified as being distinctively Indian. From Jammu & Kashmir to Kanyakumari, every state in India has its distinct identity defined by its culture, language, traditions and food. Every region has its own identity creating a sense of regional pride which then seamlessly amalgamates into the national identity of being an Indian creating this bond of brotherhood and realising the idea of Unity in Diversity.
