I’ve been lucky enough to spend some time in the wild and wonderful, multi-cultural swirl that is India.
People in India are not afraid of color. It’s everywhere and I love it.
Wearing color is a gift. As long as you’re putting on clothes, you might as well put on something that brightens the eyeballs of everyone you see, right?
I understand the appeal of basic black – it’s easy, it’s sophisticated, it hides whatever you might have inadvertently sat in on the NY subway..
But color is a mood-lifter in a way that black will never be.
In India, they even sell piles of color at the market!
And, of course you can also get your strings of flowers…
So they can decorate for the holidays. India also knows a thing or two about holidays.
India has some 17 official holidays a year plus dozens of others that people can choose to observe, according to their religious preferences. The U.S. only has 10.
More color. More holidays. Good thinking, India.
