India is a vast country with a lot of diversity. Post independence, India has struggled a lot to gain economic stability. The economic hub of India 'Mumbai' looks like any other dobeveloped foreign city now in 2007. You will see high rises, sky scrapers in this city of India. The biggest problem of this city is the slums. The government is doing considerable work to redevelop the slum areas in Mumbai. There has been considerable redevelopment of slums and the development in India is considerably fast. Even though the economic conditions here have improved a lot, there is still poverty in many parts of India. While cities like Mumbai, Kolkata are busy and people here are working days and nights, there are quiet and small villages of India which the tourists adore.

India General knowledge-Why visit India?
India has great hill-station. If you visit India, don't forget to stay a night at a hill-station. My favourite hill-station is ooty in Karnataka. Apart from great hill stations, India has great forests. You can go there camping, tracking, rap ling and do all sorts of adventure. Goa has great beaches. Goa has a great appeal globally. Visiting small villages will expose you to a different world completely. Sometimes in villages you also find sages. In this time when India is changing it's face, it's little difficult to find such sages. But when you find one, you' ll be surprised. You will discover a new world in India.
