You got it. Several of my colleagues have gone for 2 to 4 weeks. I may go out there in 2015.

Amazing food and culture. I'd go back in a heartbeat, either alone or in a group. But, then again, I'm not a woman.

Another reason to stay out.

I was witness to that firsthand. It's really gross. In the smaller towns and villages, it is common for you to see the practices described in the article or for you to otherwise experience open, low-cut sewer systems running through the middle of the streets. Now, given that many Indians don't eat meat, the smell isn't as bad as it would otherwise be, but its still a huge problem. These open sewers (or lack of a sewer system), and subsequent contamination of water supplies, etc., is precisely why people get what they call "Delhi Belly." As the article alludes to, its not just foreign tourists who aren't "used to the water" (but, seriously, I don't see how one gets used to feces-infested waters), but everyday Indians as well. I recall when I was at a Bollywood flick in Mumbai in 2010. Once intermission time came, the bathrooms were full of Indians puking in the toilet (and, not, it wasn't due to the movie ). Still, I'd gladly return to India as it was a culinary heaven otherwise.

Pretty much my first thought. India looks so ghetto.

I've heard far more cases about cop violence or mass shooting in the US than women raped in India. However, nobody has ever asked "why would anyone want to go to the US?".

My ex-roommate, a Chinese woman, was going to go to India with her female friend; she hadn't heard of the rapes here, and after I told her, she did some research and changed her ticket to Jakarta instead.

They have earned the title "Street Sh+++++ Nation".

Why anyone would want to go to such a ghastly place is beyond me and when Chinese tourists give India the smack down you know it has to be bad.

The best way to visit India is by internet because you can always leave immediately.
