India is such a large country, and it would take me another lifetime, perhaps two or three more to explore. Are there agencies/entertainment/tourism guides that offer video tours (virtual) films of the selected areas? Even more , sampling the cuisine of India would be great also. Good Article...extensive write up..Thanks for an in depth review. I enjoyed it.
