Taking ‘Lion’ steps in India: Following the journey of Saroo Brierley
India
Cultural
Off the beaten track
Based on the book ‘Long Journey Home’, Garth Davis’ Lion has taken audiences on a journey of their own (and is tipped to become an Oscar favourite). The film depicts the life-changing events experienced by Saroo Brierley. He boarded a train as a poverty-stricken five year old and was subsequently taken clear across India; separated from his family and all he recognised as home. These tragic scenes are played by Sunny Pashwar. His moving portrayal of a child, displaced and distraught in bustling Calcutta, is sure to tug at your heartstrings.

Indian Street Food: a Culinary Phenomenon
India
Cultural
Food and Drink
India is truly a culinary phenomenon with a cuisine as rich and varied as the country itself. Street food is a significant part of the story, fuelling much of the urban population as they go about their daily business. Whether it’s tiny morsels or a full meal, the Indian street food scene is an energetic and memorable experience. Expect explosive flavours and moderate sensory overload as you absorb the cacophony of sights, sounds, smells and sensations of the day.
