Everyone Should Visit India at least Three Times in each Lifetime.
A first visit is recommended when you are in your early twenties: an initiation to take in the sights, the sounds and smells of India, to balance the exotic and the banal, to backpack, perhaps intentionally on a shoe-string budget even when you can afford more!
The second time when you are a 'householder': travel with your partner, stay in the luxury hotels, shop, romance at the Taj Mahal and swear eternal love to your beloved.
And a third time is necessary in search of Wisdom: when you think you have done it all, but feel you haven't got anywhere! India is the place to ask the big questions, seemingly without any answers for the world. "Who am I?" We have been debating these for some 5,000 years and yes, we do have some of the answers.
