India, the country of many climates, many languages and many beliefs, is constantly celebrating a festival or a fair. The varied fairs and festivals of India add color and integrity to this beautiful land of culture. Fairs are the focal point of socio, economic activities and attract people from far and near.  Most important trade shows, exhibitions and conferences are held in New Delhi, Mumbai, Greater Noida and Kolkata. One of the biggest convention centres in India is Pragati Maidan  in New Delhi. It is owned and managed by Indian Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO), the premier trade promotion agency of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. FOODTECH INDIA, the most established event for food industry is held in Kolkata, the business capital of Eastern India.

The Republic of India ranks among the well-known tourist destinations in the world. The country is famous for the unity of various communities living in the country and it is one of the distinctive features of India. The country is home to a host of tourist attractions that draw travelers from across the world. India is the world’s seventh-largest country stretching from the high mountains of the Himalayas to the tropical greenery of Kerala, and from the sacred Ganges to the sands of the Thar desert. Its more than one billion inhabitants are divided into two thousand ethnic groups and speak over 200 different languages. India has an almost endless variety of cultures, landscapes, monuments and places to explore. Ranging rom the ancient ruins, fascinating religious structures, exotic cities and diverse landscape there is an endless collection of tourist attractions in India. India is famous for its traditions, historical background, carnivals, events, conciliation, adventure sports locations, flora and fauna, seashores and other tourist attractions.

There are many interesting ways to travel around India, most of which cannot be described as efficient or punctual. Indian Railways is one of the largest railways under single management. The railways play a leading role in carrying passengers and cargo across India's vast territory. Indian Railways gives you the opportunity to discover the Indian landscape and scenic beauty first hand and is generally more economical than flying domestic. It is one of the safest ways of travel in India. With classes ranging from luxurious to regular, it's the best way to get to know the country and its people. What is more, India has one of the largest road networks in the world. While you can't take a cross-country bus-ride across India, buses are the second most popular way of travelling across states and the only cheap way of reaching many places not on the rail network. Most Indian airports continue to function with one runway and a handful of boarding gates. Check in and security queues can be terribly long, especially in Delhi and Mumbai.

Options of accommodation vary widely depending on your budget and location. Cheap travelers' hotels are numerous in big cities. Rooms at guest-houses with a double bed (and often a bathroom) can be found in many touristic venues. Also, good budget hotels in India are not hard to find. Most Indian train stations have rooms or dormitories, which are cheap, relatively well maintained and secure

One of the great things about traveling is being able to check out the different types of nightlife that other countries have. India's nightlife is diverse and growing.  In India you can find everything from cozy bars and pubs, to multi-level nightclubs.  In most cities in India, nightlife is early to start and early to end because of the curfews. While Mumbai may have the biggest selection of party places in the country, they’re all starting to close around 1am. With a few exceptions, the scene is similar in Delhi and even worse in Chennai and Bangalore. Surprisingly, the nightlife in Kolkata offers the most for late night party people. As drinking traditionally isn’t part of India’s culture, the country's bars tend to be divided into two categories – cheap, seedy local bars frequented by India’s male population, and classier venues catering to the progressive middle and upper class crowd. The latter can only be found in major cities.

English is an official language of India and is widely used in both spoken and literary contexts.
