Disgusting corrupt country that turns a blind eye to some sickening crimes, if you intend on going don't go with a woman

Let me tell you something about my country -

''QUOTES BY GREAT PEOPLE''...


Will Durant, American historian: "India was the motherland of our race, and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages: she was the mother of our philosophy; mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics; mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity; mother, through the village community, of self-government and democracy. Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all".


Mark Twain, American author: "India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only."


Albert Einstein, American scientist: "We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made."


Max Mueller, German scholar: If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions, I should point to India.


Romain Rolland, French scholar : "If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India."


Henry David Thoreau, American Thinker & Author: Whenever I have read any part of the Vedas, I have felt that some unearthly and unknown light illuminated me. In the great teaching of the Vedas, there is no touch of sectarianism. It is of all ages, climbs, and nationalities and is the royal road for the attainment of the Great Knowledge. When I read it, I feel that I am under the spangled heavens of a summer night.


R.W. Emerson, American Author: In the great books of India, an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence, which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the questions that exercise us.


Hu Shih, former Ambassador of China to USA: "India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without ever having to send a single soldier across her border."


Keith Bellows, National Geographic Society : "There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won't go. For me, India is such a place. When I first visited, I was stunned by the richness of the land, by its lush beauty and exotic architecture, by its ability to overload the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes, and sounds... I had been seeing the world in black & white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolor."


A Rough Guide to India: "It is impossible not to be astonished by India. Nowhere on Earth does humanity present itself in such a dizzying, creative burst of cultures and religions, races and tongues. Enriched by successive waves of migration and marauders from distant lands, every one of them left an indelible imprint which was absorbed into the Indian way of life. Every aspect of the country presents itself on a massive, exaggerated scale, worthy in comparison only to the superlative mountains that overshadow it. It is this variety which provides a breathtaking ensemble for experiences that is uniquely Indian. Perhaps the only thing more difficult than to be indifferent to India would be to describe or understand India completely. There are perhaps very few nations in the world with the enormous variety that India has to offer. Modern day India represents the largest democracy in the world with a seamless picture of unity in diversity unparalleled anywhere else."

YOU WON'T HEAR GOOD THINGS ABOUT INDIA IN U.K. THIS IS NOT BECAUSE THERE ARE NONE, IT IS BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR. TRUTH IS BOTH INDIA AND CHINA HAVE BEEN TARGETED IN UK MEDIA JUST BECAUS EOF JEALOUSY. IF YOU MEDIA LOVER, HAVE YOU EVER HEARD CAMERON OBAMA AND OTHER LEADERS OF WORLD? THEY KEEP TALKING OF SKILLS DEVELOPMENT LIKE INDIANS. I ADMIT INDIA IS NOT RICH COUNTRY BUT WE ARE MOVING FAST TOWARDS THAT GOAL. WE GOT FREEDOM IN 1947 AND HAD NO MONEY. WE WORKED HARD. INDIA IS NOW ONE OF TOP 5 ECONOMY IN THE WORLD. WE DID NOT BEG WE DID NOT PRODUCE TERRORISTS. WE DEVELOPED SKILLS AND COMPETE WITH OTHERS.

visa is about £100, best time btwn oct- march is holiday season. Its not worth going for less than 3wks as travel is very slow in an around India, ie getting bookings for tickets, altho having a guide may help. Also jet lag an adjusting to the heat and pace takes around the second week..great experience if u have the time, brace urself for the culture shock.

Check the weather in Delhi for the month you want to go as i went there in early Feb and froze.Then they have the monsoon September time.

Dont for get the £100 Visa charge.

Without logging into to Gmail i couldnt see what transport they are using to get you to all these places hopefully its trains as not unusual to offer coaches which would be awful.

I wouldnt get this deal as i have been to India so many times and could do it cheaper myself.

The country is corrupt in many ways and can be difficult to stomach, but there are some beautiful sights and places to visit.

I often see deals like this, but having done a golden triangle trip myself (organized by myself) I think you can get much better value for money by organizing it yourself. I suppose this is a good option for people who want/need the reassurance and support of a fully organized and guided trip.

Flights to Delhi should cost around 500 pounds, hotels can be found extremely cheap on Trivago and a little research into hiring a car and driver, or taking trains could save a lot of money! I did a 15 day trip to Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Goa, using a stop-over flight to incorporate Dubai and Abu Dhabi for 3 days and in total for my partner and I it did not come to much more than 2,000 pounds (including spending money!). So for those who want a real bargain and do not mind a bit of independent organizing and travelling, research and do it yourself I say!

This is probably the best way of seeing India (having somebody take you around & staying in nice hotels.)

You won’t feel like pulling your hair out as much this way.

India is a fascinating/frustrating/intense place

Every country has its problems including the uk. India is a massive country with nearly 20 times the population of the uk. I found it absolutely fascinating. I organised it myself (flights, trains to Golden Triangle and Varanasi) rather than taking the easy option of a guided tour. Personally I'd recommend taking this tour if you're not a person used to travelling independently as India can be hard work at times.

How popular is it? Do you have statistics or facts to prove that gang rape is indeed popular?
Bear in mind the size of population.

On the other hand, paedophilia over here in the UK seems to be popular in the media right now - should that discourage tourists from coming here?

Foreign travellers including female are largely ok in india. very few incidents happened in past with foreigners just because of super fast catching and conviction of criminals. You will rarely hear positive news in uk about india and not a single miss in case of crimes. That does not mean there is no good happening there. Foreigners are largely welcome over there. Remember there are also states like Gujarat where not a single rape reported. Even uk does not have rape free city. India is largest democracy in the world and standing on its feet. We got development oriented govt this year so watch it. B

Dont forget to ride on delhi newly built metro train and airport express to see real delhi:). 90% of metro track is over bridge so you will get best view of city.

I think 'popular' means 'I read about a few rape cases on the BBC news, so everyone must be doing it' just like paedophilia over here.

Hey people
Stop criticizing India

We supply terrorist regimes with weapons (israel etc)

Our Balfour messed up before 1948

The germans killed the jews

So why did we make the arab palestinians pay for that
We shouldve demanded the germans to pay and construct for jews, homes WITHIN germany

We did a lot of evil and now people dont like us and we blame them?
Come on wake up

NO NO.
"Winter starts in November and peaks in January, with average temperatures around 12–13 °C (54–55 °F). Although winters are generally mild, Delhi's proximity to the Himalayas results in cold waves leading to lower apparent temperature due to wind chill. Delhi is notorious for its heavy fogs during the winter season. In December, reduced visibility leads to disruption of road, air and rail traffic.[3] They end in early February, and are followed by a short spring until the onset of the summer"
End of Feb is best time to go as it wont be too hot and wont be too cold.

Extreme temperatures have ranged from −2.2 °C to 48.4 °C.[4]

I use Goa as a base and in 12 years i have traveled most of India from The Pakistan/India border down to Kerala.
Goa is not the same as it was before the Russians started going to Goa and with them come the call girls and drugs.
But saying that i am going back to Goa after the Monsoon as my dentist is there and with the flight and hotel it works out cheaper to have a month in Goa than get my teeth done here.I think the Visa price will come down as its going to Visa on arrival soon which will be a nightmare at Goa airport.
