In the lead up to the Indian Independence Day, we go through the alphabet and find, for each letter, an iconic facet of Indian life that screams “India!”
We asked you, our readers, to share your ideas.
We are grateful to those who contributed because their responses show an incredible variety that reflects the vibrancy and dynamism of the country (and to be honest, made us a bit sentimental too).
From patriotic fervour to favourite foods to savour, from the spiritual to the sublime, from traditions to trends, from the heart of India to its hidden corners, we explore everything uniquely Indian from A to Z.
Happy Indian Independence Day!
