India possesses 14 official languages, an additional 24 languages and countless dialects spoken by over a million people. This is an anthropological tourists’ dream or a fascinating emersion in cultural diversity for those wanting a new perspective on the richness of human cultures.

Finally, the true international tourist seeking the splendor and grandeur of new cultural vistas will want to experience India and capture the essence of their journey with video and photographic memories of these must see destinations, attractions and activities as diverse as the tastes of each tourist.
