It is a nation of over a billion souls, 6 major faiths, 18 official languages and 1,652 dialects. It is diverse in ways that are both obvious as well as subtle.
India is not a destination for everyone - but it’s a destination that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime.
It is the acid test for every traveller. You will either love it or hate it, but one thing is assured... it will change your perspective on life forever.
It’s the destination that you cannot wait to leave when you're there... and the one to which you cannot wait to come back to once you've left.
You will find peace within its chaos, calm within its intensity, and discover yourself after feeling truly lost. No other nation polarizes and contrasts all at the same time like India does.
If you're about to embark on a visit to this land of culture, history, colour and ritual, be prepared to be amazed as you’ve never been in the past!
This short film was shot in April and May 2014 during one of my few and somewhat far between visits to my nation of birth. It covers the main destinations of where every visitor to India should experience when visiting for the fist time.
