I have always envied the talent and creativity of some of the photographers who submit their work to the Iranian.com. So here is my first attempt at taking . I was in India for a 10 day work trip and, to keep me company, I asked my wife Varinder’s youngest uncle to join me. (V is 8 months pregnant with our twins and unable to travel to the end of our street let alone India.)
After spending a few days at the opulent imperial hotel in Delhi, we flew south to Bangalore. Although we had meetings almost every day, I managed to duck out of a trip to Madras and instead we asked our driver to take us 150km south to Mysore, the sight of a 12th century Hindu temple and a Maharaja’s palace.
I took pictures at every opportunity despite the unbelievable heat and humidity. In an attempt to cool off I even ordered several tailored Indian suits to wear during the day. Our driver told me that most people asked him if I was a politician (fat, white suit and chauffeur car).
