India is the world’s “it” country. Tumultuous, colorful, and fragrant, northern India is a mosaic of urban and rural life. “You can put a camera down almost anywhere in India and let it run for two hours,” Rudy Maxa says, “and when you return, you’ll have a film to rival an ‘Indiana Jones’ movie.” From the serene beauty of one man’s love poem to a woman, the Taj Mahal, to the crowded alleys of downtown New Delhi, India is a feast for the senses. Maxa discovers temples straight out of Disneyland and consults a street astrologer who tells him he will live a long life but his hotel room number is not an auspicious one.
