South India-born and raised in the vibrant suburbs of Peterborough, writer and photographer David Stott acquired his taste for India in the womb. At the age of 28 he finally discovered the variety and diversity of flavours at which butter chicken had merely hinted and since his first visit he’s become an annual visitor to India, steadily learning to tell his chole from his bhature and establishing a serious addiction to masala dosas along the way. David now splits his time between India and his adopted home in vibrant suburban Sydney, where the pace of life is such that he occasionally has to pinch himself to make sure he’s awake.
Victoria McCulloch first ventured to India in 1997, but has been living in 'the motherland' for the last six years and can now only drink her tea with masala in it. Armed with a laptop and a yoga mat, she plies her trade as a freelance journalist and Kundalini Yoga teacher. Victoria has also been influenced by the music and chanting in India and is recording her second mantra album. Hailing from the UK, Victoria studied postgrad Journalism at City University London before absconding to India.
