The links below feature excellent writers, inspiration and resources for travel, music, food and yoga.
For some of the travel writers, I’ve also included the first ‘gateway’ article I encountered that for me, prompted love at first read.

http://www.amazingsouthindia.com – A site where my friend and former colleague Suresh Subramanian features education and tourism offerings for the vibrant region of South India, which dates back to 8000 BCE. While much Indian tourism focuses on the country’s north, the south offers diverse natural wonders from wildlife sanctuaries to lush forests and beaches, as well as historic museums, monuments and temples. South India is rapidly advancing socially and economically, with high-tech metropolises such as Chennai and Bangalore, and high literacy rates and low fertility rates compared to the rest of India.
