Here's India! Country of dreams and romantic emotions, fabulous wealth and incredible poverty, splendor and pale rays of hope, palaces and hovels, dwarfs and giants, cobras and elephants, the country of a hundred nations and a hundred tongues a thousand religions and two million gods. The only country which we all want to see, and once seeing, if only briefly, they do not want for all views of the world put together. "

(Mark Twain)
