Because of all the different cultures, populations, the caste system, differences between urban and rural areas, extreme poverty and a rich past India is a country full of contradictions. A visit to the country is almost always intense. It is perhaps the most outer-worldly country to be found on earth. Of course there are tribes and populations that seem to be further away from our way of living, but none has such a complex and different historical, architectural, cultural and visual richness as India.
Besides that there is the difference in landscapes ranging from the Kerala coastline to the plains of the Ganges to the deserts of Rajasthan and to the Himalayan plateau. These and more habitats have resulted in a diversity of the population that gives the country yet another dimension.
