10 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT INDIA
There’s never a dull moment in India. Wherever you look, at all times of day or night, you will see something that surprises you, confuses you, or amuses you.;D
India is a photographer’s dream. The spices, the dyes, and the beautiful saris mean that you’ll definitely need to take more memory cards than you anticipated needing.
The variety,colour and devotion involved in India's kaleidoscope of religion is fascinating and mesmerising.
First thing that comes to mind when you mention Indian food would probably be CURRY/SPICY/SAMOOSA lol anyway am really not into Indian food but i do appreciate the variety they have!
6. THE INDIAN BRIDE.
Just as you would expect,an Indian wedding is laced with all sorts of traditional stuff its amazing to watch! oh and quick fact, red is the theme of many an Indian wedding because it symbolizes prosperity and good fortune! they also use mehendi (henna tattoos) on the palms and feet of the bride to symbolize the deepening of the love between husband and wife(when the henna is applied its not as dark as it is when its dry=may the love deepen as time goes by)
7. THE OLD ARCHITECTURAL STRUCTURES
Of course there are modern buildings in India but India has this feel of modern VS ancient when it comes to the environment...its almost like your living in two different worlds!
8. THE JEWELLERY AND MAKE-UP!
Most Indian women are dressed to the nines y'all ! they aint playing....they step out with a face full of make up but the thing that gets me is the make up...its so Arabic looking its fantastic*am a closet make up artist so excuse my excitement* lol
9. STREET SHOPPING/THRIFTING
As we all know, Indians LOVE their business and we are here to help them make it flourish lol thrifting is sooo fun in India because not only can you find an authentic designer piece...they have markets all over the friggin place! there are high end and street shopping malls all over the place!! and i happen to love em #DONTJUDGEME
Last but definitely not the least i love festivals..even if I don't participate it means no university for me yay!! lol and there are ALOT of festivals in India, don't even get me started but the pics below show 2 festivals 1) HOLI- the festival of colour(goggle cos am really too tired to explain guys) and 2) DIWALI- very common holiday this,the festival of lights
