Exploring off the beaten path, not so touristy India

It was my trip to India and I did not want to do all the touristy things. I was not interested in marching through the Taj Mahal in Agra with millions of other sweaty tourists taking selfies with their iPhones. I wanted an authentic India experience eating local meals like Bheja Fry in restaurants where you would not find another American and the menu is not in English. I wanted to try local delicacies and see how Anglo-Indians spent their days. Rather than laying out and partying at tourist beach hot spots like Goa or fighting my way through the crowds in Mumbai, I wanted to swim with elephants in the jungle and go on safari looking for panthers at night. This is my untouristy India experience.
