India is the world’s largest democracy, with a growing global influence. Its more than one billion inhabitants are divided into two thousand ethnic groups and speak over 200 different languages, all of which have shaped this incredibly diverse culture. India is an ancient land, yet its modern food, music, and movies are popular all over the world. Although India has a reputation for crowded cities, most people live in rural areas.

No matter the location, Indians are warm, engaging, and family-oriented. An AFSer going to India should be prepared to live under different conditions to what you are possibly used to at home. While many houses might not have central heating or air conditioning, there will always be an abundant supply of love, hospitality and warmth.
