2012 will be a leap year starting on Sunday in the Gregorian calendar. It is predicted by many, that the year will mark the end of the world or a similar catastrophe. December 21, 2012, according to the Mayan calendar, various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae related to this date have been proposed. But, the New Age interpretation of this transition postulates that this date marks the start of time in which Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation.  Astronomers and other scientists have rejected the apocalyptic forecasts as pseudoscience, stating that the anticipated events are contradicted by simple astronomical observations. The New Age movement is a Western Spiritual movement and its commandments have been described as drawing on both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions. It aims to create "a spirituality without borders or confining dogmas" that is inclusive and pluralistic.


Be it the end of the world or the beginning of the New Age, it should not be a deterrent factor for the travel buffs. And, if it is one place you would like to visit before December 21, 2012, why not India, a magical country that intrigues everyone.
