Introduction

India remains a great mirror to mankind's progress and its failures. The mystery, magic and diversity of India has allured researchers from ancient times. Its holy rivers, challenging mountains, exotic wildlife and unending supply of spiritual leaders make it a favorite destination of  tourists as diverse as the nation itself.   Modern India, freed from the British in 1947 after an epic non-violent struggle, has struggled very hard to live up to the dreams of its founding fathers. Study of India requires a deep understanding of  culture and diversity of mankind, religion and languages. Please join me on a mythical, magical, often contradicting, yet fascinating journey through India.

-- Vikas Kamat

The Indian Travel Brochures claim "Discover India and Discover Yourself". India is home to some 200 languages and dialects, an equally diverse food habits and cultures. So how does the president of India address her people ? In which language is the national anthem sung? or currency printed ?

Fine print : Once I heard a Christian missionary exclaim " I don't know what you have heard of India, but it is true. The opposite is also true! " That summarizes the vast diversity of India. So please understand that this is one family's humble attempt and if you have a contracting information/view that is probably right also. -VK
