MIDDLEBURY — The land of Bollywood, the “call center capital,” creator of curry and home to the Taj Mahal. India is a country of 1.5 billion people with a booming gross domestic product of about 7 percent even during the world’s recent recession.

A rising superpower, India is extremely diverse with 18 official languages and about 700 dialects, is expected to be the world’s third largest economy by 2050, is the largest democracy in the world, and, yet, it’s a country mired in contradictions of religion, ethnicity and language.

ADDISON COUNTY — Finally!

That’s what many in the area said when they woke up Wednesday morning to the first real snow storm in Addison County in more than a month.
