Expat health insurance customers in India may wish to attend some of its key religious or ceremonial events.
These include Diwali or Deepvalu, which is held to commemorate the goddess Durga, according to thetravelmagazine.net editor Sharron Livingston.
She noted that this is "the festival of lights", which occurs between October 15th and November 15th.
It celebrates the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness, but is often related to prosperity and wealth, the expert explained.
Further celebrations include Holi, which is one of the country's major festivals and is also "the most fun", Ms Livingston asserted.
She added: "You have to have a sense of gaiety."
Attendees throw water over each other or at passers-by, while children "love spraying colours on one another with their pickharis", the expert added.
This event occurs during the full moon day in Phalgun, or March.
India is a predominantly Hindu country with over one billion inhabitants, with English and Hindi both widely-spoken languages.
