What’s more ….the exclusive Kangra Fort’s Maharaja Chandra Museum, the newest royal experience in Udaipur – Fatehgarh and the Apsara backwater luxury cruises at Allepey. Adding to the flavor of the week is information on India’s Republic Day & Beating Retreat and the vibrant Camel Festival of Bikaner. A new this week is also our Face book page, would love to see you on this, just click on the Face book icon at the bottom of the newsletter and join us!

We also take this opportunity to share with you, a small yet meaningful step that our Foundation- ‘Shaping Lives’ took recently; a day outing for the children from NGO Deepalaya to a premier shopping centre Select Citywalk in Delhi, where they were the VIP’s of the day. Bringing a smile on their faces, was a special experience for all of us , truly incomparable!

Have an incredible week!

Most Warmly
