By the way UNESCO was established in the year 1972.UNESCO mainly recognizes cultural or nature sites where ever in the world. So India had only two heritage sites at the time when UNESCO was formed and they were the Agra fort and the Ajanta caves. As years passed UNESCO discovered 30 more heritages sites in India and of these 32 sites 25 are related to culture and other 7 sites are related to the nature. The latest site which was recently discovered was the Great Himalayan National park (2014), India has many beautiful temples and carvings on these temples don't even match anywhere else in the world. Nowlet’s look at important heritage sites of India.

Food on Indian Trains

0 comments
Foreign visitors to India are often impressed by the ingenuity of locals: they are capable of evolving enterprising solutions for the problems they encounter. One example is the traditional Tiffin service in Mumbai, which helps delivering hot, homemade meals to office goers in the city without a hitch.
This tendency to evolve innovative solutions to problems has also surfaced in dealing with the poor quality of food served on Indian trains.


The solution has come up with the introduction of private companies serving stations across India. Several companies like Travelkhana.com, Mera Food Choice.com have come up, which solves this pervasive problem.

These companies are platforms for ordering meals by tying up with restaurants found in places where the train stops.  Pre-ordered meals can be availed of at major stations across India. Ordering can be done using phones, by online means or using apps.

Once the order is placed, the restaurants pack and deliver meals. The bonus is the scheme of cash on delivery whereby you need to pay only after the meal has been delivered as per your satisfaction.
MeraFoodChoice is only a few months old, but is already serving hundreds of passengers across 75 stations in India whereas Travelkhana serves over 2000 trains running throughout India.

Most passengers love the fresh approach by these new services. The food is delivered hot and fresh to your seat without you having to go anywhere. Though it is a bit more expensive than railway pantry car food, yet the sheer variety of the menu compensates adequately.

From Continental to Mughlai to Chinese, the cuisine is much more varied than the standard Thali meal served by the train pantry car. Kids can be humoured by ordering various kinds of pizzas.

While travelling on long distance trains, it is better you also carry some accessories that will help make your meals more convenient and enjoyable. Some of these accessories are as follows:
  • ·         Tissues: Dry and Wet. Wet tissues are particularly useful.
  • ·         Paper plates: These are disposable making it less messy and convenient
  • ·         Spoons and forks
  • ·         Large serving spoons
  • ·         Bottles of water
  • ·         Newspapers to clean any spill-over’s.
  • ·         Plastic bags to collect waste.


The government has allowed the private companies to operate at stations throughout India. According to the proposal, a passenger can book his meal by providing his name, berth and coach number at a website for placing an order for a meal like a railway dinner.

There will be items like Pasta, Burger, Biryani, Pizza, Sandwiches, etc. to tease your taste buds. These are not available in all pantry cars. Food will be delivered at the passenger’s seat at a particular station. There is a minimum amount for order which will vary according to the site and train route.
Currently, the private companies serve food freshly cooked by tying up with local restaurants. One needs to pay only by cash on delivery. Such catering facility at stations and trains are availed of by lakhs of passengers daily, while 302 mail and express trains have pantry cars.

0 comments
India is a land of many contrasting and beautiful landscapes. This large country that borders the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea has numerous locations form beautiful beaches, scenic mountains, large forests and amazing cities, India is the ideal destination for adventure. A long drive viewing the amazing scenery of India is all that we need with our loved ones.


Dehradun to Nainital
This is a distance of about 270km. It should take you about 6 hours to drive along this magnificent road with sights to behold. Nainital is a lovely mountain destination with very scenic mountains. There are numerous lakes here. Avoid the winter months as it gets chilly and snowy, but if you are someone who would like to experience the snow and the cold weather just drive and enjoy the chill.

• Lake Nainital- you may enjoy a boat ride on this scenic lake. It is a crescent shaped lake situated between Himalayas and has most beautiful flora and fauna. You can even go fishing in here, the most common fish found is Hill Trout or Mahasir in the local language.
• Tiffin Drop- also known as Dorothy's Seat, on Ayapatta hill, about 4km from Nainital. The views are spectacular.
• Kumaon Hills in Uttarakhand offer breathtaking views.  The greenery and picturesque beauty can leave anybody mesmerized.
• Rishikesh-visit religious shrines.
• Corbett- there is wildlife to be seen here including the rare tiger.




Bangalore to Goa
This is a distance of about 700km and should be a full day's drive. The most popular route is through Hubli and Karwar though you may also take the Dharwad- Ponda route. The latter is more scenic. Don't miss these stops:

• Gokarna- This is near Karwar and has very famous and beautiful beaches.

Manali to Ladakh and Leh
This route is also known as Bikers Paradise, and for good reason. This area is near Pakistan and China, Tibet in the Himalayan mountain Range. Enjoy mountain scenery like you haven't seen before.

This is a fantastic journey combining city and country views all the way to the seaside historical area of Goa. This town has forts built by the Portuguese and is considered India's party capital.

Do not miss these sights:
• Kolhapur- the road goes through the mountains and has great views.

India Through A Foreigners Eye

0 comments
India has always been one of the countries people have heard about, but have not seen. Besides, it is also one of the countries (as many others, if not all of them) that has not been seen for what it is, but for what it is not or could be. The misconceptions that have been carried out in the world for a long time because people have sometimes seen only the things that are on the surface or that have not been properly told and explained at all.
It is not easy to understand or comprehend, but there are myths about India that are far away from the truth and cannot be left alone anymore.
                                                                    
India in Foreigners Eyes

First steps on the Indian soil and the first things that come to mind about India for most people, are
• Slums
• Poverty and mal nutrition
• Spicy food

However, when the visitors go on the amazing journey of exploring this place, the things that await them, are completely different. It is impossible to deny that, for Europeans, it might come as a culture shock even though they have seen it on the TV.

When people are thrown in the situation, they become different and they start seeing things differently. Even though there are many people in India, the cities and towns are beautiful, the people are welcoming and generous as much as they can be.

When getting to know Indian cuisine it is better to keep an open mind because the diversity is amazing. Even if the food is spicy, it is different than Europeans have ever had in Europe. Indian food should be eaten in India for people to be able to say that they know Indian cuisine at least a little bit. All these myths become unrivalled while on a journey to know India in person.

Indian traditions are not well known to Europeans, as well. Few things that most Europeans can name are
• Taj Mahal
• Colorful clothes
• Cows

Indian women are beautiful in their colorful traditional clothing known as the sari. The clothes are different in different regions across the area. Traditional jewellery is used and it also depends on the social status and other differences.

Cows are worshipped in India, but it gives a certain meaning to respecting every life around them, it may either be in the animal form.

Visiting Ganga Ghat was an amazing spiritual experience for me it gave new meaning to salvation. India has a wide range of scenic landscape in Kashmir. The exotic jewellery of the Nawab’s can never be ignored. India has a wide range of wild life. I was thrilled to hear the Bengal Tiger roar. As I experienced the amazing Agra on an Indian morning, it made me fall in love with the shape and colour of the country even more. All the ideas I had in head while visiting India changed for the better because the amazing traditions I got to experience, showed me another India that is impossible to explain but to be experienced.

The caste system, although harder to understand, still seems fascinating and the Indian culture has always been an interest. The history of this place has been into place for thousands of years and it has also had its ups and downs as all the other places in the world.

I now see the system as part of the history. I also believe that the society has adopted many things from Europe and will do so even more, incorporating these things in their own world.

After my visit to India, for me visiting India mean
• New experience with different people
• New love for different food and cuisine
• Acceptance and open mind about the world which is different from our own.

My experience in India cannot be said and revealed in a couple of words. It has to be felt from the heart, the beauty, the tranquility, the culture and tradition.

Young people in India want to be educated and those who might not be as well situated as others, appreciate the little things much more than all the people I have met during my travels through European countries.

A foreigner, who has travelled through a company that lead tourist groups, might never be able to see the amazing and diverse India and learn to open the mind towards a new perspective of India.

I believe that any foreigner with a license to travel through India and an open mind will be able to come back as a new person with different ways in life that are learnt in the amazing India.

As you need a turkey visa to travel in Turkey, similarly you should obtain a visa to travel in India
India offers beauty, colours and diverse tradition which are not described they are seen and experienced.

How to Select a Reputable Dooars Wildlife Tour Operator

1 comments
Summary: Dooars is a virgin wilderness which even today is much unexplored. If you want to quench your thirst for traveling, make sure you visit this magical wonderland and its untamed greenery. Get in touch with a reputable Dooars wildlife tour operator to make your dream come true. This article will offer you some guidelines to help fulfill your dream vacation.

Are you looking to escape your mundane routine and spend some quite hours in the lap of Mother Nature and invigorate your mind, body and spirit? Then, plan for a trip to the Dooars! Travelers mostly are still uninformed of the pristine beauty of this majestic wonderland in North Bengal. The richness of the vast area in the northern part of the state of West Bengal is literally unexplored to the average travel enthusiasts and that makes it all the more relevant for them to explore Dooars in her full bloom. However, owing to a limited number of tour operators who conduct wildlife tours in Dooars, it is even more difficult for tour enthusiasts to visit this region on their own. That’s where a reputable Dooars wildlife tour operator comes handy.

Wildlife Tour


Here I will discuss three steps to choosing a reputable tour operator who conducts wildlife tours in the vast expanse of the Dooars. But before going into details let me inform you about some of the best locales that you might want to visit during your trip to the virgin wilderness of the Dooars. While planning your trip make sure that it includes the following places – Jaldapara and Gorumaraas well as Chilapata jungle, Jhalong, Bhutan Ghat, and Samsing among others. Your starting point should ideally be at Malbazar or Alipurduar. Now let’s go back to the steps I mentioned before.

Online Search These days we’re all dependant on the Internet for obtaining information about anything and everything. The World Wide Web offers a vast storehouse of information on almost about anything that’s known to human knowledge. So it is obvious that you would find a number of Dooars wildlife tour operator information while searching on Google. However, I must tell you that since you would find a number of tour operator websites, you might get puzzled as to which one would be ideal for your dream tour. This is natural! I would suggest you to have a close look at their websites. Make sure you go through their websites in detail. Only a reputable tour operator would have a number of packages, custom tour package options and reviews listed on their site accompanied by a number of videos from their earlier tours. A detailed website and one that offers a good positive impression on your mind would ideally help your decide.

Compare Rates Today it has become quite a costly affair to go on a tour trip for the average citizen. The tour rates have skyrocketed and so does the cost of traveling alone. However, the wanderlust that you are, deep in your heart, you might want to spend the extra amount to quench your thirst of traveling! But, just one word of caution, make sure you spend your hard-earned money on the most trusted and reputable Dooars wildlife tour operator. One way of ensuring that is by comparing the rates of different tour packages offered by travel agencies. When you would see that a tour company is offering you a customized tour package, that is, the itineraries vary for a couple and that for a 4 or 6-8 member team, you know that the company has the infrastructure and potential to support bigger tourist groups and hence can be relied on. Moreover by comparing rates of different tour operators in Dooars, you’ll have an idea as to whether your operator is charging you way more or that you have struck a cheap deal!

Reviews and Word of Mouth Even today in this age of the Internet and mobile communication, it is our human nature to pay more attention and trust on reviews and word of mouth references. While choosing a Dooars wildlife tour operator, make sure you ask your relatives, friends and colleagues for references. If they suggest someone with a good standing, go with them, after all they’re closest to you and wouldn’t falsify any information. You can vouch on that.
Koustuv Roy is a renowned travel writer and journalist. He has traveled the length and breadth of the country exploring several unexplored tourist locations and presenting them to his audience in the form of his interesting and detailed write-ups. Here, he offers his advices on how to select a reputable Dooars wildlife tour operator.
