Travel mates wanted for a half-year trip in India. I will arrive in mid-January and travel around for 6 months (well, so long as i get the appropriate visa), entering by land from Myanmar and beginning with the NE States. Consider joining me at some point. Expect low budget (~10$/day), local amenities, non-touristic locations, a lot of ethnographic research (i'm a travel photographer), a fair bit of hiking, including Himalaya. Some of my plans are:
* a sequence of tribal festivals in Arunachal Pradesh, Feb.;
* living root bridges, landscapes and Khasi culture in Meghalaya, Majuli island in Assam;
* Holi in Mathura and/or Hola Mohalla in Punjab, Mar.;
* traditional sports, such as buffalo racing, kushti wrestling, etc.;
* possibly - Aoling festival of Naga Konyak tribe in Nagaland, 03-06 Apr.;
* Charak festival in West Bengal, mid-Apr.;
* non-touristic ancient towns of Rajasthan (Tonk, Samode, Barmer, etc.);
* and more.
I've been to India 8 times, having spent about 4 years in total there. Not interested in parties, getting pointlessly drunk or stoned, meditation and spiritual development, tourist ghettos, beaches. As for popular sights, i agree that they're often deservedly popular, but the thing is, i've seen most of them.
Let me know if you're interested!
Mark.

P.S. Also, i need a partner WITH A FOREIGN PASSPORT to get a restricted area permit for Arunachal Pradesh. An exemplary case of bureaucratic redundancy, this paper is only issued to two (or more) foreigners applying together. It is not necessary to stick together afterwards. Indian citizens need a different permit, so they can't help, a foreign passport is a must. I plan to apply in Guwahati in late Jan. Any other tourists there?

Hello Jai!
Sorry, for whatever reason i got no notifications from this forum. I assume you have a Canadian passport? If so, let's explore Arunachal Pradesh! We can meet in Guwahati in the last week of Jan. to apply for the permit.
