In Honor of India’s Muslims

Three Generations

Three Generations

The Muslim people of India have always extended the same kind of hospitality, warmth and kindness to me as any of the other people of India. As their month of fasting has come to an end and they celebrate, I would like to pay tribute to them by posting a few portraits of Indian Muslims.

About ninagrandiose

I am based in NYC but travel regularly to India and Mexico. Both of these countries feel like home. In India I scour the country in search of fabulous textiles to incorporate into my clothing designs. I sit back and let the ambiance and wonder of India seep into my consciousness so I can be inspired to write about what India is for me. I bring a limited number of people to India on exclusive and intimate tours of my favorite hangouts. In Mexico I take in the natural beauty that surrounds me and dance the night away. I constantly give thanks for all this and am pleased to share it all with you.

  1. Wonderful portraits. I like that you pay a tribute to the Muslims of India, we don’t often hear much about them as they are a minority in the country.

      Today, Muslims world wide are so unfavorably viewed because of all the attention on fundamentalism, which is just one small branch of this fascinating segment of the population. Years ago I was involved with the Middle Eastern dance and music community in NYC and have always had a tremendous admiration for this group. Thanks for the visit and comment.
