Mystical India
The Republic of India is old (over 10,000 years), big (7th largest country in the world), with over 300 languages (Hindi and English most common) and eight major religions (80% Hindu & 13% Muslim). It is now one of the fastest growing economies in the world. This pluralistic, multiethnic society provides a cultural diversity which is very tolerant and exaggerates the senses of many western visitors.
