The region has a blend of modernity trapped into the traditions which are rooted in time. To go back in history, the Deccan-Peninsular Plateau has a history which can be traced back to the times when Gondwana land broke into fragments, which moved northward with time. One of the oldest landmass of India, it can further be divided into Central Highlands, north of the river Narmada, which forms most of the Malwa Plateau and Deccan Plateau, a triangular landmass which falls below the river Narmada. There are five major river systems which flow through them: Narmada and Tapti in Madhya Pradesh, and Godavari, Bhima and Krishna in Maharashtra, whose sources lie in the western ghats which further run eastwards. It becomes easy to trap all the monsoon rains blowing off the Arabian Sea, as the mountains form a divide between the lush, densely populated coastal lowlands and the more arid lands of the Deccan Plateau.
The major part of the region is held largely by Madhya Pradesh. They hold enough ancient monuments, wildlife reserves, sacred pilgrimage towns, the thick densely forested remote forests which has a charm of its own. Forays into the Central Indian Sal forests which offer a glimpse of wild tigers, and a rendezvous with the tribals will let you experience the region which has a lot of offer in term of culture. Visit the region, and explore the central part of a diverse subcontinent, rooted in its traditional ways of life, yet outward looking.
The region offers you tales right from the pre-modern cave hunter gatherers society to up town, forward looking modern cities, which have their cultures intact in them.
