Bloggers_Boyfriend discovers his first love: India

Lifestyle blogger @bloggers_boyfriend strode through India in style ( with and without shoes ) looking good, being cool and experiencing the finest designs, crafts and architecture with India by Hand. He says India is his favourite country in the world , and we can see why !

Charmed by the artistry and architecture of the 200 year old Castle Kanota where India By Hand hosted a dinner with the royal family, he made sure he got there hours before the party, to capture its beautiful colours and old world ambience with his camera. His undeniable flair and uncanny knack for posing in the exactly the right spot certainly made for some pretty pictures.

Not one to laze around when there’s so much beauty to discover, he woke early to catch the magical Jal Mahal palace in the first light of dawn, and reflected on how much more he had to see in India.

He found his perfect corner in the inner sanctum of the Gem Palace, during a private audience with owner Sidharth Kasliwal. As much in love with the candy pink walls as the splendid jewels on show at this very exclusive atelier, Bloggers_Boyfriend knew he had discovered his niche.

Never one to shy away from the action, Bloggers_Boyfriend got up close and personal with the artisans of Bagru village near Jaipur, where INDIA BY HAND guests experience the rare craft of hand block printing first hand in a 5th generation printer’s workshop.

There are so many places you have to visit, even just visiting without any purpose – wondering around and geting lost inside the city, the markets, have your all senses indulged, slowly getting used to it and finally faling in love ...
