What should travelers always remember to pack when visiting India?

Remember to bring comfortable shoes and clothing. If you can get your hands on bug spray with DEET in it, bring some of that, too; the local mosquito repellent, Odomos, doesn’t work very well. Most over-the-counter medicines are widely available in India, but it’s a good idea to bring an adequate supply of prescription drugs with you if you need them.
