Brasil ♥ India – Here’s proof!

Just as Brazil is as exotic as it gets for us Indians, guess what… India is equally exotic for Brazilians!

So much so, that as you travel through the land of samba and sunshine, you’ll discover many interesting things that remind you of home – and personally, had me beaming with pride.

India a Love Story – Caminho das Índias

Perhaps the hottest Indian export for Brazilians is Indian (women’s) clothes.

I would strongly recommend gifting your host / friend in Brazil a saree, scarf or kurta and you’ll be scoring major brownie points for it!
