Hi Mark,
Heard that you were planning to visit India. Though we may not know each other so well I wanted to ensure your stay here is satisfactory. At first sight you might feel uncomfortable at the pollution, the soot and dust and the huge population but let me tell you, soon you will find that India is a people's country , the warmth and love that you will get form all of us here will be cherished by you for a lifetime.
Since this is your first visit here obviously you will want to do some sight-seeing. You must have heard about the interesting palces to visit like the world famous Taj mahal, the beaches in Goa, the forts in Jaipur or the more exotic places in Ooty, Kanyakumari, Kovalam but there are some hidden gems of places that you should just not miss. I am listing some of them here for your reference.
This part of Greater Himalaya called "moon on earth" consists of naked peaks and deep gorges which you should absolutely not miss.

Cherrapunji - Just 56 kilometer away from the state capital Shillong (capital of Meghalaya),  is a heaven’s garden away from the reach of city life.The sky scrapping hills offer a view of the lush green area, the floating clouds and the rustic lifestyle of the local residents.

Tarkarli Beach - Mumbai is a cosmopolitan city known for it's shopping, architecture and Bollywood cinemas but if you drive a few hours , you will reach the  land of pristine waters, Tarkarli. It is a heaven for the adventure lovers who love to do snorkeling and scuba diving. You can still feel the tranquil whispering of the sea waves in this less tourist frequented beach of Maharashtra.  

Daman & Diu - is the 2nd smallest Union Territory in India. The reflections of both Gujarati and Portuguese lifestyle can be seen in this part of the country. The far stretching shoreline adds on enchanting charm to this beautiful abode. Dotted by forts and churches, Daman & Diu is a good choice to explore the unexplored.

Athirapilly Falls - This famous waterfall in Kerala is not just calm and sweet, but something really wild and natural. The word ‘picturesque’ hold true while I talk of these giant natural wonders.

Apart from these you should also try the various cuisine of India. It is heaven for your taste buds to savour the variety of food you will get from each and every State of India.
Have fun while you are here and do not hesitate to contact me if you need more information.
