Season’s Greetings!

It is a pleasure to present to you another edition of the India Update … now a weekly edition.

In this issue we showcase for you some lesser known facets of the Incredible India from Baolis (stepwells) of Delhi in the north to the Goa Heritage experience in South, Rann of Kutch, Gujarat in the west to the new destination of Dooars, West Bengal in the East. Vying your attention are also the festive colors of India with Lohri celebrations across North India and the Float festival of Madurai. We are delighted to also share with you a whole new way of experiencing the thrill of Indian Desert with India’s first 4X4 Dune Safari experience in Jaisalmer.

In our quest to keep bringing something new and unique to you, we do hope many of you will chose to give your guests the opportunity to experience the one of its kind; Jaipur Literature Festival and India Art Summit, New Delhi this month. Truly, these art and literature extravaganza’s are worth a visit!
