Born here; grown up here; Its my country!
India is a strange country. Depends on what you are here for and what you want to see in this country. You need to define your takeaway from here. Its not one of those countries which will appeal to everyone moment you exit the aircraft. Certainly not.
India is a growing country; today as i write I heard a statement in one advertisement on TV, ‘India is always under construction’. That exactly sums it up.

India is a beautiful and diverse country blessed with abundant natural beauty and history.
