Unity in Diversity

maximum INDIA

To begin to appreciate the wonders of India, just look at this logo. Notice the different scripts (letters) within each letter of “India.” They come from India’s many languages and represent the diverse peoples, beauty, complexity, history, and traditions that fuse together to form the unique entity called India. It is the unity seen in this artwork, this singular identity that has inspired people for centuries.

The land itself offers magnificent sights, from the Himalaya Mountains to the Indian Ocean and stunning architecture, from ancient Buddhist temples to the Taj Mahal, one of the world’s most recognizable buildings. The culture, one of the world’s oldest, has given us expressive dance and music, major religions, yoga, colorful fabrics and tapestries, intricate crafts, spiced foods, and performances on stage and film that mesh words, music and dance.

Through maximum India, we invite you to discover, experience, and savor India’s cultural and artistic wonders, in vibrant color.
