Praising India?

I can see the Rabbi's point but I don't think it's prudent to heap praise on gentiles. Hinduism is avodah zara, so why give a rationalization to the many Israelis who go there seeking to find meaning in life? Also, hundreds of millions of Indians live in extreme poverty and they live under a caste system which, basically, prevents them from ever improving their social and economic status. Aish.com excels at showing the greatness of Judaism. We have everything we need right here in our Torah. Why look elsewhere? The grass is not greener in India!!

India Tour

I should mention that I was working for Legacy Kosher Tours in India, run by Mrs. Miriam Schreiber. The food, hotels, logistics were all amazing and luxurious

Good Insights

Your experience of the crazy and chaotic traffic in India and how everybody manages fine made me smile. It is completely shocking for a first time visitor,not used to this part of the world,and your insights drawn from your experience are so wise. I wonder if you travelled on our even more crowded local trains which is very unique too!

PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF TRAFFIC

I LOVED your description of India's traffic. It was absolutely perfect and I loved the phrase, "by horn rather than indicator!" LOL LOL LOL So true! I call it Coordinated Chaos, and truly it is. I live there as my adopted home from the US, and my family is there while right now I'm in the States.
