Visit India and live a lifetime adventure

Visit India and live a lifetime adventure

Right from your very first steps into India, you will be submerged under a wave of heat and dirt, a palette of raw colours and spicy and pungent scents. The weather conditions fluctuate a lot, the inland trips take months, the minutes lengthen over endless surprises, then melt into the unravelling fog of hours and days.

Some may avoid India, others keep going back to visit : 28 states, 6 Union Territories and the National Capital Territory of New Delhi – it’s not just a country you shall get to explore, it’s a continent. The expedition is a physically demanding experience if you want to discover villages in Western Ghats; contemplative, if you get to listen to the snoring of your companions aboard long distance local trains; sociological if you want to observe the potter making awesome pottery, and if you want to be both poetic and romantic, there’s the Taj Mahal to take your breath away. . .
Visit an old Portuguese fort, or a venerable Jewish synagogue; seek shelter from rain in an isolated palace, ride a camel but be accompanied by a guide; at the bazaar, bargain for a silver candlestick, a carpet, an antique dagger or contemporary jewellery made of gemstones.

Some travel to India to recharge their batteries, find inner peace beyond chaos, or even stay in a meditation centre. Others opt for social or ecological engagement, often with the hope of learning more about themselves.

A trip to India still has a good deal of spirituality, with a river where elephants bathe, or in front of the colourful and deafening spectacle of a religious holiday. Go down the Ganges rapids rafting, practise yoga at dawn on a beach, capture on camera the wildlife in a wildlife reserve, photograph the flowers of a Himalayan meadow, admire the Kamasutra postures carved on the facade of a temple – you would not have too many avatars in your kitty to exhaust all the possibilities offered by this gigantic and resourceful country. Have a wonderful and safe trip!

The police retrieved a laptop, a mobile phone and a sum of 10,000 INR ($ 185) from the assailants.

This tragedy comes as a rapidly growing number of Indians increasingly demonstrating against sexual abuse of women and girl children across the country. The protest was sparked by the gang rape on 29th December 2012 of a 23-year-old Indian student in New Delhi who died of her injuries. That sexual assault, in the presence of the young woman’s boyfriend, who had been beaten, caused an uproar in India but also in the world. The perpetrators of the gang rape have long since been arrested, BUT according to many, it’s as if the victim never got enough justice for such a brutal violation of her body and resulting death.

However, in court, Madhuri Gupta said that she is innocent and the accusations levelled at her, are all false.

Madhuri was arrested by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police on April 22, 2010 for sharing sensitive information with Pakistani officials and staying in touch with two ISI officials Jamshed and Mubshar Raza Rana.

India to become world's 3rd largest air market by 2025

India to become world’s 3rd largest air market by 2025

The commercial aviation market is undergoing unprecedented disruption in India. The country is preparing to become the 3rd largest player in the world and is multiplying initiatives in terms of investments, regional links, the relaxation of security rules and the criteria necessary to operate international flights.

The improved performance of the airlines around the world could be due to the new rules imposed by the DGCA (General Directorate of Civil Aviation) in September 2016. According to the new regulation, if the flight does not take off within five minutes after the fire green of air traffic control, it will have to be pushed back to the back of the queue where it will have to wait for the next slot available to take off.

Previously, on Indian soil, if a flight scheduled for takeoff at a particular time did not leave in time, it also delayed other flights in the queue. With this new procedure, companies that are well organized and take off on time are not bothered by others. Indian airlines are now making efforts to avoid arriving late on the track.

At the same time, in Indian commercial aviation, there has been a clear increase in flight frequencies, routes and passengers. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) had published an interesting report in 2017 that foresaw significant future tourism trends around the world. The prediction that India is expected to overtake the UK as the third largest air market by 2025 is pleasing the hotel industry and tourism businesses.

In terms of market size, the United Kingdom will move from third to fifth place. India will overtake the United Kingdom as the third largest air market in the world by 2025. In 2026, the country (India) will have 337 million new passengers and a total of 478 million air travellers. It will be more than Japan (just under 225 million) and Germany (just over 200 million) combined. Of these numbers, growth is expected to come primarily from the Asia-Pacific region. This are will be the source of more than half of the new passengers over the next two decades.

These forecasts encouraged the Indian government to improve the aviation sector, as it has obviously been doing for a few years. India’s government is realizing the potential of this industry and the large middle class population of India of about 35 million people who now enjoys relatively increased purchasing power. In order to make flights affordable for a large proportion of middle class people, air fares have been reduced by 18% since 2016. Air India is also preparing to be privatized…
