“To other countries, I may go as a tourist, but to India, I come as a pilgrim.”– Martin Luther King, Jr.
"India in 2016 is no longer a nightmare, it is a real antidote against stress. The famous philosophy of “no problem,” with a smile will serve as proof to the enthusiasm and confidence of the Indian people. India is a source of rejuvenation in all areas. Ask and you will always find answers."
Contrary to a popular belief that all Hindus are vegetarians, strict vegetarianism is limited to the southern area of Gujarat and some holy cities. However, do not dream of a beef steak; the cow is considered sacred, nevertheless, some restaurants serve buffalo. The culinary differences between North and South are considerable because of the climate and historical influences. In the North, meat, bread and cereals are most common, as well as Mughlai cuisine, akin to those in the Middle East and Central Asia, where spices play a more important role than chilli. In the South, the staple meal is rice and a vegetarian dish — Dal, a kind of lentil soup or as a side dish or as a basic meal; the Thali is the ubiquitous dish, originally from South India, it is used throughout the country.
