Indian people are wonderful, they seem to be very honest, certainly very accommodating. It's the only country where I became sick as a mad cow!
Very similar to the people of Bali, Indonesia, naturally they are both predominantly Hindu, whereas the rest of Indonesia is Islam. I was just in the Maldives Islands and the island we stayed on Hadahaa http://www.alilahotels.com/hadahaa
had mostly Indian staff, wonderful people.
