Why I proud of India as a traveller it has reason, we as a nation are most diverse whether one talk about culture, geography and polity. The most amazing one is the language that changes even after 20 km one can feel it though regional language has no name but they exist today and we feel proud of that. Our country has most ancient religion of the world called Sanatan Dharma a religion which gives the real philosophy of life and is developed and published here on this holy land called BHAGWAT GEETA. We as a culture fought and survived more than 5000 years ago and I am proud to say that even today we are relevant and had saved our glorious culture that culture which has no animosity it has a feeling to welcome guests and take care of minorities and provide them rights so that they can live and grow here peacefully.

I also want to say that this land is evidence of inception of Buddhism, Jainism and Sikkh religion what a glorious faith we have why we should not proud of it? We should undoubtedly.

If I talk about me I want to tell that I had travelled India right from Jammu to Puducherry all solo going from different cities and capitals like Chandigarh, Jaipur ,Delhi,Mumbai,Bengaluru,Puducherry and so on. I had also gone through himalayan regions like Rishikesh, Haridwar, Dehradun and at every place I enjoyed weather, food and try to inculcate with the local people to know more and more because our country has immense potential.

I had also gone through spiritual tour of India which I started from Varansi: the most ancient city of world even exist today, this city is called land of Lord Shiva and one can feel it if he/she reach there.This city is combination of many ghats because holy river Ganga crosses this city in a semicircular path. I will urge people if they go in this city then must watch Ganga Aarti at evening at Dashashwamegh Ghat that is eye catching.
