Getting an Indian Visa!

I logged onto the website for the Indian visa at www.evisaindia.com to complete the forms. Multiple pages and very confusing. I entered Retired and I could not continue as it stated I needed to enter my work address and phone number. I had to put in a fake job and my home address to continue on. It also asked what hotel and who to contact in India. Well we are on ship and not going on the land except for a few hours tour. Why doesn't the website have a link for ship cruises and ship contact? Why he kept asking.

   Brief History of India

The Stone Age:

The Stone Age began 500,000 to 200,000 years ago and recent finds in Tamil Nadu (at C. 75000 years ago, before and after the explosion of the Toba Volcano) indicate the presence of the first anatomically humans in the area. Tools crafted by proto-humans that have been dated back to two million years have been discovered in the Northwestern part of the country.

Indian Elephants?

About ten years ago my travel agent heard I might want to go to India and one day I opened the mail and there was a present for me from Beverly Hills! What was it? Elephants! Viviane told me she thought since I had ridden a camel but not an elephant, she would send an elephant just in case! Well I will be in India but who knows about riding an elephant?
