Preface of INDIA and my Persian garden
“…I felt I was breathing an India of another time… an entire symphony of luminous diamonds, sapphires of the deepest blue, rubies the colour of pigeon’s blood, pink pearls and sea-green emeralds, most of which were set in gold… like in the tales of A Thousand and One Nights…”
The Jewel in the Crown of England in the 19th century, today India spreads its shine on the Globe. A feast of colours, landscapes and works of Art; a mosaic of ideas and people that bear the stamp of its ageless wisdom. Everything in superlatives in the Indian world, seen through the alteration of contrasts: another order, both subversive and charming to the gaze of the traveller.
