Just going through the post I saw that there are lot of apprehensions about India,being an Indian I may sound biased but there is no such thing to worry about India.Its like any other place or rather better in many sense.You may have some problems with beggars or people asking for money to pose for you .You may find people staring at you specially in rural areas,but it's all out of curiosity and nothing else......believe me they are rather we are all very friendly and will not harm you by any means.All you need to have the ability to tackle and mix up with people to an extent.
Plz do share you good experiences .....if any
wow. It's funny I come accross this post because I am dieing to go to India. Sadly though when I was in that part of the world and had the opportunity I was turned away because of tension between Pakistan and India about two years ago or so.... I won't let that stop me though... I just have to wait for the opportunity to come up again and I will be there. I have many Indian friends in Malaysia where I am able to travel to fairly often and I hear them talking about it there and it always makes me want to travel there, but for now I will have to wait a little longer.
India is an awesome place. Really safe and alive as alive can be. Every traveller should visit India at least once in their lifetimes. If you are longing for something or feeling empty, India is a good place to take that ache away.
