Yesterday, after a relaxing Christmas brunch on the Juhu beachfront at Vie, we unwittingly found ourselves at the sunset launch of a new brand of whiskey, which was taking place there. The invitees were fashionable and rich “twentysomethings”, who are clearly bringing about cultural change in this country. My friend termed it “The New India”.
So, what does “The New India” look like?
Polo shirts have replaced the much favoured stripey long sleeved shirt. And they come in an array of bright colours, one for every mood really!
Girls, on the other hand, prefer to show their beautiful tan legs off in the shortest of shorts. Cute!
There are public displays of affection in Santa hats.
And fake moustaches that can rival the real ones of Rajputs. (Go on, bet you can’t spot the fake!).
