  2. Love the headline. There is more to India than just the Taj Mahal, no wonder a divine beauty. The pictures are so gorgeous and the reflection in the water. We need to market our cultural heritage in a better way and stop indulging in cliche.

      • I am extremely happy that you did this post. There is much more to India than Phoren tourists clicking ‘poor and real India’. It irritates when thos cameras only showcase poverty.

        • I wrote a post about that too. Why western media is obsessed with ” The Poor India”. They show slums and naked children running in the street and I am like WTF? Is this all you see in INDIA.
          It is our fault too. Our people are themselves creating this wrong image in mind of others.
          Sigh.. I could go on and on.. It breaks my heart when we are treated like Poor and Hungry.

          • Yes! Though I am an Indian based and settled videsh, but Ive seen the country after staying in Mumbai and Pune. I hate this typical NRI mentality and when I came to Delhi for work assignment, it irritated how in the group foreigners brandished their camera. There is more to India and felt like hitting them with a hammer on the read. It’s such a glamorous picture by foreign media and India needs no lesson from the world. There are so-called modern countries who has their own issues. They would stop the bus during tour to shoot poor children on the streets of Delhi.
