  • It has one of the most diverse and fascinating ecosystems in the world with tigers, wolves, rhinos, lions, and monkeys. Not to mention desert, jungle, forest, and snowy mountains.

    • Have you ever visited?

    • No but I would like to, preferably with a good guide who can show me the terrain and animals. Like a seasoned hunter or something.

    • Ok.. hunting is banned in India... so dont go looking for seasoned hunters. There are many government appointed guides though.. they are pretty good!

    • You need to be just a little on your guard in the old city in hyderabad. And if you do visit India, then visit Kerala. It has got one of the oldest churches in the world where we still worship.

    • Tangentially relevant-- Pakistan also has a major city called Hyderabad... lol. I know a guy from there, and he is *always* having to explain to people that, no, he's not from India.

    • @redeyemindtricks lol Oh, wow, really there is? Small world I see. xx

  • I know it's terribly hot there, people LOVE spicy food and there are too many rape and murder accounts.
    Spicy food aside - not an appealing country to me.

    • Also: Bollywood, bangles, baroque style of dress and decore, Hindi language (I'm aware there are other languages too) and Hindu faith.

    • Well, if u love the mountains then we've always got the Himalayas.

    • I do love the montains. =)

  • I just love their madras curry & nan lmao.
    Obviously I know about other stuff, too, like Hinduism and the caste system, but the food is just really good so it was worth the special mention.

    • Good. As you know, if you're not part of the solution, you're the problem.

    • Of course! But what I request you is that dont stereotype us. There is misogyny everywhere in the world, even in your own country too. Maybe such horrific things dont happen but nonetheless I am sure women face hurdles over there too.

  • Been there twice and i love the food. I have two friends from there as well.

    I like the cultural heritage and i visited some of the temples.

    Definitely not like what the media portrays

    • You're mostly correct, except for the respect for women part. Yes, we do have a misogynist society but things are changing pretty fast. You have to remember that India is a country in transition from a semi-feudal society to an industrialised country, it will take some time to overcome these problems. Anyways thanks for your input.

    • Nothing I can learn from the internet.

      Like... for example, the true history and legacy of the Karma Sutra on the culture of India. Not the sex parts, but the "go get your friends to kill her friends and then rape her so that she has no choice but to marry you" part.
