India Student Travel

If variety is the spice of life then India can take the place for being one of the most exotic and rare concoctions ever formulated. But there is unity in diversity. During your trip to India you will be faced with this diversity – in her people, her geography, her culture, languages and lifestyles of the people. Backed with a 3500 year old heritage that is evident from the architectural splendor of temples, palaces and forts alike, the unique music and dance traditions of different regions and the fascinating cuisines across the country the Indian cultural mosaic is as colorful as its national bird, the peacock. As the Rough Guide to India says “There are perhaps very few nations in the world with the enormous variety that India has to offer. Modern day India represents the largest democracy in the world with a seamless picture of unity in diversity unparalleled anywhere else." What brings to life the historical splendors of the past is the rich folklore, traditional beliefs and art of the country.

Geographically, India provides myriad options for a traveler. From the remote, alpine Himalayas to flat dusty plains, from blissful backwaters in Southern India to wide seacoasts in the East and West, from the fertile plains in Northern India to the arid desert in Rajasthan, India has everything. Inundating the country are large rivers, most of which are associated with the many Gods that Indians worship today – the most venerable being the Ganges and the Yamuna. The mesmerizing beauty of the Himalayas, the deep spirituality of the river towns and yoga retreats has over the years attracted explorers, adventurers and sages alike.

India's diversity is a result of its heterogeneous demography. India has seven major religions (Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Sikhism, Jainism, Judaism and Zoroastrianism) and six major ethnic groups. From the Gujjars who rear their sheep in Himalayan meadows to the Monpa tribes in Arunachal Pradesh, santhals of Bengal and Bihar to the coastal fishermen, from the friendly Kinnauris of Himachal Pradesh to the fierce Jarwas of Andaman unique tribes co- exist with the more homogenous majority of people in both North and South India.

Traveling with Minds Abroad in India's capital Delhi, its second largest city and cultural capital of Kolkata, to the spiritual centers of Varanasi and Bodh Gaya students will try to begin to reach the heart of the Indian experience. Any trip to India is incomplete without the fantastic culinary experience that different groups in the country offer. Students will eat meals at restaurants serving the full variety of local cuisines.
