India Now

Long after the cheering crowds and pageantry have deserted parade routes across India and the tricolour has been brought down and folded away, London continues to commemorate 60 years of Indian Independence and celebrate all things desi with India Now. A three month long love affair with India, it's been is billed as 'the most comprehensive festival of culture from the subcontinent ever to be staged in the capital'.

The rest of my article on the India Now festival is here. Here are some pictures I took at The Trafalgar Square Festival.





And at the British Library

People sure are fascinated by the whole dancing thing right?

This morning I went in for a manicure. The (Iranian) manicurist was so disappointed I didn't know "Bollywood dance" :-)

LOL about Reena Roy (Asha Bhonsale warbling Disco Staaaay..tion disco is all that comes to mind)

That British Library sign is so interesting. After staring at it for a few minutes, my mind only processes the word "TRASH" among all the other letters.

just read your piece - I so hate it when Bollywood is equated to Indian cinema. What are the Tamil, Telugu, Malyalam, Kannada, Bengali etc films then, I would like to know.
