India is the country of global attention – there is an economic boom, and this is now making it a powerhouse on the world stage. The India that lives and breathes in Britain, not just among Indian people and communities, but also among thousands of non-Indians who have fallen in love with aspects of India, is often forgotten, by-passed or ignored by the national media. This is a very creative and positive story - and I will bring it out for the world to see and read about in the Masala Tour. Every day, a huge amount of volunteering and charity is done to maintain and manage the hundreds of temples, mosques, gurudwaras, community centres that have been built by the Indians up and down the country and also by organisations like Oxfam and smaller charities to help India. Yoga teachers all over the country help to build a healthier Britain. Indian entrepreneurs are some of the best job creators and investors in Britain. Indian family care for children and the elderly is legendary. These are the practical, positive grassroots stories that will become nationally visible during this Masala Tour in the month of November 2010.
