Tea is India's most popular drink - the country consumes 837,000 tonnes of it every year. The ritual of drinking chai transcends all boundaries, and roadsides are dotted with #Chai wallahs who serve it boiled up with spices, sugar and milk.

"The vivid images and stories include Indian labor in the building of US railroads and in farms and lumber mills in the 19th century, to the well-known journey of Swami Vivekananda to America later in the century."

"Unfortunately most people have not heard the post-colonial scientist. We are still spellbound by the colonial judgment. We have become what the British wanted us to become: more material, more timebound, rejecting the mental, the psychological, the timeless. This increasingly material mindset reveals itself in the determined, sometimes violent, desire to locate the exact birthplace of Ram and Krishna, in the spate modern mythological fiction books that seek to historicise mythological figures and in the decision to make Gita a 5151-year-old event."

Shakespeare lived at a time when India was ruled by Akbar the Great, or the Great Mogor as he was referred to by the sea-faring Europeans, whose long reign was marked by opulence, harmony and a resultant peace. There are various references to India in Shakespearean plays. He uses words like Ind, Inde, India, Indies (East) and Indian to refer to a country fabulously rich.
