India is a gorgeous land of contrasts. Abundant riches and extreme poverty. The breathtaking (Literally! And I am a somewhat jaded traveler!) Taj Mahal and huts made out of cow dung (“poop huts” as my middle daughter called them). Full of spiritual seekers as the birthplace of Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and many other groups and sects and also full of prejudice and extreme misogyny. Gorgeous mountains, beaches, and one of the oldest civilizations on Earth and mountains of trash all around.

People tend to love it or hate it but I personally, loved India!
