Following are few foreign nationals that fell in love with India so much that they decided to spend the best phase of their lives in India.

The author of Shantaram – Gregory David Roberts – spent almost 12 years of his life in India which also included a stint as a doctor in Dharavi – One of Asia’s Largest Slums. His love for Mumbai city compelled him to take up several odd-jobs to sustain in the city of lights. One can go to the extent of saying that no other writer has presented India so beautifully in the modern reality-era.
