View Thane from the air with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)’s Hidden Journeys



The Hidden Journeys Project aims to enliven the flying experience and transform it into a fascinating exploration of the people, places and environments thousands of metres below by providing inspiring information to air travellers about the parts of the world they fly over (www.hiddenjourneys.co.uk).

The latest guide to be released explores the fascinating landscapes of northwest India, covering the fort city of Alwar high in the Aravalli Mountains, the pristine Chambal River, the sacred Narmada River and tribal cultures of Thane along the flight path from Mumbai to Delhi.

India is experiencing one of the most remarkable economic transformations of any nation on Earth. At the heart of this economic evolution are the financial and cultural hubs of Mumbai and Delhi: two ancient cities, brimming with thousands of years of history which now represent a modern India.

However, this economic transformation is evident throughout the rest of the country far from the streets of Delhi and Mumbai. Along the rest of the flight path over northwest India are new environments, people and economies which have developed amongst traditional cultures.

For example as the Indian population's thirst for electricity grows, the sub-continents many rivers have been dammed to generate hydroelectricity such as along the Narmada Valley. Amongst Thane, the most populated district in India just north of Mumbai, traditional Warli paintings adorn building as part of the ancient art form's inclusion into current culture.

I believe that life is a journey, often difficult and sometimes incredibly cruel, but we are well equipped for it if only we tap into our talents and gifts and allow them to blossom.
