"This is indeed India! The land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendour and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of hundred nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of traditions, whose yesterday's bear date with the modering antiquities for the rest of nations-the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for alien prince and alien peasant, for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor, bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the world combined." - Mark Twain
Singh Tartan - Designed April 1999 by Lochcarron of Scotland for Mr Sirdar Iqbal Singh of Lesmahagow (south of Glasgow). The ground shade of blue was a special Singh colour with the yellow symbolising peace. The red and white is in recognition of Mrs Singh who is of Swiss origin and the green represents various landholdings of 'Grandfather' Singh. The tartan can also be worn by any Asians with Scottish connections.
