A Fun-filled “Experience of a Lifetime” for our Fairfax Members – created by Sita!


When the Board Members of FAIRFAX Corporation, along with their partners, visited India from 8th-14th January 2017, Sita in Delhi decided to make it an “Experience of a Lifetime”, and that’s exactly what they named the event! The 7–day trip included Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Mumbai.

Every detail was planned with meticulous care, right from the accommodation at exclusive hand-picked hotels that let them indulge in the grand Indian hospitality — to the carefully designed itinerary which ensured there was something for everyone to enjoy. A logo was specially created for the occasion, and there was even a specific website and App to coordinate and facilitate the event!

The travellers engaged in activities as diverse as visiting the Rashtrapati Bhavan in the upper echelons, to rickshaw rides through the narrow lanes of Old Delhi, and equally enjoyed both! Besides the mandatory visit to the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra, the visitors were welcomed to the Canadian High Commissioner’s Residence for a reception and dinner. 7K2A0271Again, a private Royal dinner at the city palace in Jaipur, and a visit to Amber Fort, were a great contrast to the forays into the crowded colourful bazaars looking for traditional gifts and artifacts.7K2A0395

Mumbai meant a trip to the famous Chatrapati Shivaji Museum, and no trip to the city is complete without some entertainment from our film industry.  So there was a dazzling, specially organized “Bollywood Night” at the Taj Crystal Room, which delighted the guests.

All too soon the week was over, and the visitors were ready to return, but they did seem to have enjoyed the unique vacation immensely, and they all agreed that it was, indeed, an “Experience of a Lifetime!”
