To make sure the ride doesn't make us dizzy we get off the rollercoaster in the tropical south of the country, in Kerala. Nowadays Kerala is the most affluent and modern Indian state and it is here that Ayurveda was born five thousand years ago. Since then this science of life has evolved with the times, but remains true to its core teachings and traditions. It resides not only in high-end Ayurvedic centres, but also in every Indian spice cupboard. In India Ayurveda is a way of life – mothers know that turmeric is the best antiseptic medicine for scraped knees, and teenagers chew on cinnamon bark for fresh breath. The masters of Ayurveda can teach you many other secrets that will lead to sturdy health and a more balanced life.
The vast Indian subcontinent just might be the world's biggest rollercoaster. It’s a ride that you must experience for yourself, immersing yourself into a world of colourful saris and holy cows, the opulent scents of countless spices and the gentle sounds of morning prayer at the temple. India is a country that will change you forever.
