|Watercolor paintings by Cate Parr remind me of my appreciation of Indian culture and love for Bollywood|
I love Bollywood movies, mostly the old school ones I grew up watching. Growing up in Cameroon, Bollywood movies were actually more popular than Hollywood flicks. When you love something as a kid, it always holds a special place in your heart. I won’t daredelve into the criticisms for being 3hr plus long, being overly melodramatic, breaking into song (best part for me) or that you never see a dark skinned Indian in leading role or even supporting roles. That’s all discussion for some other time and forum.
