I was born and brought up in India. I moved away when I was twenty-one, but as most expatriates will know, India never leaves you. Which is why the major inspiration for my own website The Tiffin Box is my childhood memories of growing up in this amazing, crazy, unpredictable country.
We lived in a century-old red-tiled house, surrounded by coconut trees and a tropical fruit tree orchard. Mangos, bananas, grapefruit, lime bushes, guavas, passion-fruit vines and, yes, avocados were all just a tree climb (and the occasional bone thumping fall on backside) away.
