.In TV commercials and glossy tourism campaigns, it’s “Incredible India.” To David Mould, it’s a sub-continent so diverse that it defies description—simply inexplicable. India is an epic of epics, spanning thousands of years—of war and conquest, of the rise and fall of great civilizations, of architecture, literature, and art, of migration and settlement, of commerce with Asia, Europe and Africa. Faced with crowds, poverty, pollution, traffic congestion, crime and heat, some people find India too much to bear. But if you’re prepared to take India for what it is—often messy and disorganized,occasionally dangerous, and always unpredictable—you will be well rewarded, and relish its smells, sounds, sights, cultures, and people. David travels from the capital, Delhi, to the ancient Muslim city of Hyderabad in the Deccan, and via the so-called chicken neck to the states of Assam and Meghalaya in the northeast.
