One's first experience of India is almost overwhelming...India stimulates all senses...visual, smell, sound, touch, and ultimately, taste. There are great areas of poverty in India, which has the second largest population in the world (and will become first in the not-to-distant future). India has the largest actual number of poor people in any country...40% of the population. Driving through India, as I did much of, one can witness this first hand. Fortunately, even poverty cannot wipe a smile off of someone's face, as these girls by the side of the road demonstrated.
