old India

India is one of the most magical places on earth to visit. Not least because the women are beautifully dressed regardless of their circumstances and their age. Some of the most beautiful women I have ever seen here are over the age of sixty without so much as a lipstick between them…..

I love Indian markets. What  they sell now and what they sold one hundred years ago can’t have changed that much – flowers, vegetables, cloth, grain, silks, sweets (my favourite)…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Indian women have style. Whether they are working in the fields or starring in a Bollywood movie.

What’s brilliant is the way they take the best of the west, meld it with their own cultural dress and chuck out anything that doesn’t work. It’s sort of practical meets princess…..

note the plastic bag and the phone....
