India is made up of layers of reality. There is no one “real” India. The upper classes have always enjoyed a lavish and sumptuous life. My wife Sara and I were fortunate enough to experience a window into that world by staying at the Nadesar Palace in Varanasi. It was built by the Maharaja of Varanesii in 1834 it is in the style of an English country house. It only has 10 guest rooms. Fabulous!
