    SYNDROME OF INDIA (SYNDROME DES INDES - a 52mn's documentary in french with english subtitles) TV broadcasted : France 5, Voyage, TV5 Monde ENGLISH : Mesianic delirium, paranoia, acute psychosis attack : It exists in India a real « westerner’s traveller syndrome » which can require a fast return back home. From hectic New Delhi to the cremations of Benares, Philippe Vitaller meets many travellers who share their fascination or trauma. Accompanyed by Régis Airault, psychiatrist and writer, he tries to understand the reason why westerners become so fragile in India. FRANCAIS : Délires messianiques, paranoïa, bouffées délirantes: Il existe en Inde un véritable "syndrome du Voyageur Occidental" nécessitant parfois un rapatriement d'urgence. Plus curieux, ces troubles régressent spontanément une fois le touriste rentré chez lui. Des embouteillages de New Delhi aux crémations de Bénarès, Philippe Vitaller a rencontré de nombreux voyageurs qui nous éclairent sur leurs attentes. Accompagné du psychiatre Régis Airault (auteur du livre "Fous de l'Inde” Ed. Payot), il tente de comprendre cette envoûtement que l'Inde exerce sur les Occidentaux.
