Remarkable things often come in small, unassuming packages. Such is the case with 1000 Rupee Note (Ek Hazaarchi Note) which is being released this week in New York. Far from the 3 hour plus Bollywood extravaganzas, this little film is just 89 minutes but it packs a punch. Check out this little gem.

I’ve been popping pieces of India into my mouth since childhood – and it’s an insatiable hunger for more and more. My trip to India is about remembered feasts and new foodie adventures.
