Over 1.5 billion of the planet’s inhabitants call South Asia home. South Asia is a kaleidoscope of colors, a cacophony of sounds and a cornucopia of tantalizing tastes — a feast for the senses. It’s one of the most fascinating and rapidly changing places on the earth.
It’s an up-and-coming global high-tech center along with being about as low-tech as you can get — with thousands of villages having no running water or electricity. South Asia has all the major worldviews represented — and more. Over 800 million Hindus, 450 million Muslims and 100 million Sikhs, along with Jains, animists and atheists, call South Asia home. Buddha began his journey in India, and his influence is still felt throughout the subcontinent.
