It’s turning out to be the best summer ever and I’m consuming the English countryside – these are the days when I feel totally in the present and don’t want to be anywhere else. I remember the times when I was sweltering in the African heat and longing to return to our green and pleasant land. No wonder the Indian Maharajas chose to holiday over here – when the weather’s fine, it’s beautiful. I love the views from our village…acres of rolling green hills, golden cornfields and meadows of flowering blue linseed. Here’s a glimpse of village life..watch out for ‘Lover’s Orchard’, my favourite little place.
