    India: a nation of selfie-lovers

    The India found in the guidebooks is a magical and mysterious place.  Where exquisite palaces gleam and sparkle on the shores of majestic rivers.  Where dark-eyed beauties walk demurely between crumbling temples, their vibrant saris wafting the fragrance of perfume and spices.  Where monkeys play amongst statues of ancient gods …
