  • What is the colour of India for you?

    Every colour under the sun - but two of the most beautiful are the jasmine green of a sari and the burnt orange sky of a hazy sunrise.

  • What is the scent of India for you?

    Intoxicating incense, the aroma of flower markets. The arresting char of a distant bonfire.

  • What is the taste of India for you?

    The most incredible blend of chutneys, curries and coconut candies you'll ever know.

  • What is the sound of India for you?

    The buzz of a thousand tuk-tuks, a rooster crowing, worshipers in prayer spilling from a temple.

  • What is the touch of India for you?

    Salt, wood, oil, cashmere.
