Mark Twain said: India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.

Going to India for almost 6 months in 2003/2004 was one of the best experiences of my life. The trip was my first big one, and it left a lasting impression. I long to return to India and see some of the same things as well as experience some new ones.
The Year of India in Canada festivals and activities started early this year, but there are still many events to come for the second half of the year. put on by the India High Commission in Ottawa, and click here for many other (tourism board).
