O’Harani, in association with Rising Star Entertainment & Viveck Vaswani, proudly unveils RE (LIVE) INDIA, a first-of-its-kind luxury pilgrimage for NRI (non-resident Indian) senior citizens in the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Africa and Australia. 

Most NRI families, living and working outside of India, include aging parents, grandparents and other relatives. Many of these senior citizens would love to go to India to meet their near and dear ones and for one (maybe last) time, visit their favorite Holy places. However, the pressures of modern life prevent the entire family from traveling together, and because the younger ones cannot take the time out, the elders are not able to go, since they have to be especially chaperoned. 

So, we have curated these custom designed tours especially for those senior citizens who need to go on pilgrimages, unaccompanied. They are created specifically with safety, luxury and quality in mind for our special customers. Because at O’Harani & Rising Star Media, our senior travelers are truly special!
