Nothing exists without its opposite. India has many ‘opposites’.
The hotel in Jaipur was gorgeous: beautiful interiors, some authentic touches in the design and the appearance of all staff. That bellhop explained to me that he grew his sideburns 14 years to fit into the role. I bet the grooming takes him awhile: he needs to roll them up and fix them on his cheeks secure with some hair pins. However, right across the street of our hotel I observe totally different environment.
