Welcome to India.
This week, we’re off to India, seeing the country through the eyes of four community members: Binoyeeta (whose photo heads off this post), Girish, Divya and Zabeeh. What unites these people, along with their residency in India, is a love of travel and adventure.
India ranks top 5 for countries that most of our community lives in. With a long history with deep regional culture, India is the second most populated country on earth with its population hitting 1.2 billion in 2013 and continuing to grow. Today’s community members come from some of the most populous cities in India: Bangalore, Mumbai, and New Delhi.
