Sparkle #192: Incredible India!

India – the land of multiple sights, sounds and experiences. A country which belongs to both the rich and the poor, the old and the young alike. This is the same place where you will find something as enchanting as the Taj Mahal, and something as depressing as the polluted river Yamuna. People here can be extremely helpful and friendly, or they can be really good con artists who will not shy away from making an extra buck off a gullible tourist.
