India | Jaisal Singh & Shonali Datta

April 07, 2021

Today we’re heading to the magnificent country of India.  With a full quarter of the earth’s population living in South Asia – a visit here is a must if you intend to understand the world today.

India in particular is a continent unto itself – so different from tip to top that you could spend months here and only scratch the surface.

We have two guests today, Shonali Datta – the Managing Director of Banyan Tours and Jaisal Singh – the founder and owner of Sujan – a collection of luxury wilderness camps which provide the perfect backdrop to see tigers, leopards, and reconnect with nature.

Jaisal and Shonali weigh in on intriguing new experiences, misconceptions about India, and tell some fantastic stories about tigers, temples, and traditions.
