Travellers often underestimate the depth of cultural isolation they can face abroad, particularly in a country with a different language. To many people, India may seem a relatively easy option, with its historic ties to Britain, widespread use of English (the country’s lingua franca) and millions of annual visitors. However, sooner or later most newcomers find certain aspects of Indian life alien – and some come unstuck as a result. Culture Wise India will help you understand India and its people, and adapt to the Indian way of life. Most importantly, it will enable you to quickly feel at home.
