As I said before India never fails to surprise me. Even after 10 years of independent travels, I prefer traveling within India due to unparalleled experiences such as @basarconfluence . In fact, Sandeepa from @sandeepachetan quipped, “It reminds me of my trip to the rainforests of Amazon! (South America)” Who would have thought! There indeed is no other country in the world like Incredible India! I had my eyes wide open as the local artists sang and danced on the stage or on the huge ground below the stage. The mega dance for example, had me in splits as the dancers, dressed in their local dresses moved in perfect synchronization. It was a delight to the eyes and ears as they performed flawlessly. ________________________________________________ Pls click the link in bio to read the full blog and see exclusive pictures & travel stories.
