If you had the chance to visit India for a few days nearly for free, would you do it?

My mother visits India every year and this year she has an extra flight ticket (2-way). Accommodation is quite cheap.

Would you take the chance and visit India for a few days to broaden your horizon and experience or would you stay at home working on other productive goals and urgent projects? Would you be afraid of getting sick? Would you just watch a good documentary about India instead or read about other people's experiences, insights, revelations, etc... from visiting India?

Thank you in advance for any advice, tips or opinions. I will probably have to decide whether to go in the next couple of minutes/hours. :)
