Holi hai!

It was a busy week with client, Dishoom. On Sunday, we celebrated the Hindi festival of Holi with a proper party at Village Underground in Shoreditch. Maybe not quite as full on as something traditional in India, but it sure brighted up a dull, freezing cold day in London.

I’ve even got a plate with a story of mine from our trip to Mumbai in January, written as a haiku.

You won’t find a nicer, more genuine couple of guys than the founders of Dishoom, cousins, Kavi and Shamil Thakrar.
