“India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great-grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.”- Mark Twain
Culture in India is a sensory explosion. From art to dance, music to theatre, architecture to textiles, crafts to cuisine, the common threads of creativity, charisma and colour will leave you deeply inspired, and transform the way you see our world. Whether it’s a tribal celebration or a film festival, ancient ruins or contemporary art, there’s a variety of cultural experiences that will speak to your soul, no matter where you go.

“The secret of the mountain is that the mountains simply exist, as I do myself: the mountains exist simply, which I do not. The mountains have no "meaning," they are meaning; the mountains are.”
Peter Matthiessen, The Snow Leopard
