I am an Indian from origin and have been born and brought up in London. I have been to India a couple of times with my parents but only traveled to my native place in Gujarat, but there is so much more to see in India which needs to be explored with a lot of time. I love traveling only last year I went to explore Canada. India being my native place I think it is vital for me to see and learn about the different cultures and customs (another topic which interests me), but the only thing that is bothering my parents and bothering me a bit is the safety in India for a single female traveler. I know basic Hindi so I suppose that is not an issue, my cousin maybe with me through some of my travels, but chances are low. How safe is it for a female to travel across India on her own and in particular which places would you not recommend for me not to visit purely because of safety reasons.
