Each of the story is so enchanting and singular that you will be left asking for more at the end of each narration.

   
 
For centuries, people migrating into the rich country, India, with their respective culture and tradition and later mixing with the rituals of the Indians have given birth to a new colour of heritage and culture. This amalgamation of culture have slowly but gradually have enriched the values and faiths of the Indians even further with each sun rise and sun set in the sky. The host country welcomed this huge change with open arms as a result of which the flavour of Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Jainism and Christianity floats in the atmosphere of India making it one of the largest secular country of the world where Diwali, Christmas, Eid and Buddha Jayanti are celebrated with equal enthusiasm and exuberance.
   
 
As one turns the pages of history, the rich heritage of India comes alive with all its fragrance and colour which are still breathing in the heritage forts, palaces, temples and monuments fringed in each and every corner of this multi facet country, India.
