OVERVIEW
The hurly burly & the taxing life that we have got ourselves unwittingly into has only one antidote to rid itself of. That is when we travel ourselves into the simple & unassuming villagers of rural India, busy in their own world & unmindful of the rapid strides of industrialistion & the cluttered minds of other mortals elsewhere. They smile at you even in the face of gravest of challenges because they know nothing of the fashionable & heavy duty stress & anxiety. They are truly a blessed lot who know how to keep it simple. On this trip by Banjaaray, you visit some of the most picturesque villages and other fascinating tourist places of the stately land.
