Safety and security
Traveling in some countries or regions can be dangerous. That isn't always a reason not to go there, but part of preparing well for a trip includes finding out about possible risks.
The CIA World Factbook: India is a good place to look. Of course you always should consult your own country's Foreign Department web site.
Find current information on the web site of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: India. Always consult your family doctor and your country's Health Department web site.
