A quick week in India

I’ve just returned from a quick six-day trip in India, visiting Delhi, Hyderabad, and Bangalore (each for two days) in support of our research on the use of mHealth technologies in India. I met collaborators at IIT Delhi, explored new research collaborations at MediCiti near Hyderabad, and presented a paper at the NetHealth workshop in Bangalore.

But I also had some time to get out and explore, by poking around the streets of New Delhi on Sunday afternoon, exploring the historic sites of Hyderabad, and visiting my favorite places in Bangalore.  Although I enjoy snapping photos of the monuments and historic sites, I have to admit that it’s the people that I enjoy so much.  I’ve collected about a hundred good shots in one slideshow, and (with great difficulty) whittled it down to a top-20 slideshow for those who just want a quick peek.

    Good to hear that you have made a trip to India. As a traveler and an outdoor enthusiast you could have also come down to South part of India where in you could have experienced more authentic places. Hope the next time you would have time to visit.

      Thanks for your comment, Chris. Indeed, if you read further into the first sentence of my post you’ll see that I spent most of this trip in south India. I have lived in South India and return there at least once a year, and most of the India posts in this and my earlier blog are from South India. It’s a wonderful place.
