Precautions to take

- Never eat oily and fried food, as it may lead to digestive issues.
- Don’t visit in summers if you can’t bear hot Indian summer.
- Always keep your valid Indian visa in your pocket or purse to show it when an official asks you.
- Keep some cash because small shopkeepers and rural-people don’t accept online payments.
