Jharkhand

 
The hype, the glitter, the urban settings and even five star hospitality are conspicuous by its absence in this state. Not with standing all these, the ripple of the falls as they cascade down steep mountain slopes seem as mighty as Lord Shiva's Tandav. History stands still amidst the serenity of hundreds of years old rich teak forests of Saranda that have witnessed the rise and fall of the British Empire.
