Fried silk worms for breakfast or hunt your own rat for lunch? Chilli eye rub for cleansing or a roadside dentist appointment? Sounds absurd? FOX Traveller presents the most amazing and quirky stories from across the country in the second season of its popular show, It Happens Only In India! Join vivacious actor and anchor, Sugandha Garg, Sunday nights @ 8, as she undertakes a fun journey through the lesser-known India to find what can only be termed as bizarre.
Unlike a regular travelogue, there are no luxury hotels, gourmet cuisine or cruise parties on this show. It Happens Only In India is all about the madness, the unimaginable customs, freaky traditions and improbable heroes that make our country unique. This series takes you to places that are off the regular tourist map including Bundi in Rajasthan, Sindhudurg in Maharashtra, Jamnagar in Gujarat and Bidar in Karnataka, amongst others.
Speaking about her experience on the show, Sugandha Garg said, “From monuments to crafts, textiles to cuisine, a lot has been talked about India’s diversity but there’s still so much more to explore. Coffee processed from the droppings of a civet cat; Ulta Ramayana and Bhagvad Gita, which can be read only with a mirror; street dentists who practice their ‘art’ on the footpath; emu egg omlettes to red ant chutneys; water colour nail artists to mustache artists- I have discovered so much that it has left me wide-eyed and open-mouthed.”
“As we all know, India is a large and diverse country, with many interesting stories strewn across the states. In the first season, we have presented a few of these lesser known places and facts and had received a great response. This year we have gone deeper into the country and have discovered, to our immense pleasure and surprise, the truly quirky country we live in, hiding in the many lanes and by-lanes. The show promises many fun journeys and stay high on the wow factor,” Debarpita Banerjee, Vice President, Marketing, Fox International Channels added.
It Happens Only In India! starts on 6th May, 2012, Sunday nights @ 8 only on FOX Traveller.
