UNITED BY TEA

The Sunday Guardian - - PICTURE ESSAY -

If there is one thread that in­ter­twines us un­equiv­o­cally as a na­tion, it is our love of tea. Nu­ances, in­ter­ac­tions, sto­ries from ev­ery­day life in our coun­try, be­tween us and our cup of tea form an ev­er­last­ing bond that’s wo­ven into the fab­ric of our national iden­tity. We at So­ci­ety Tea knew it can­not be ex­plained ra­tio­nally, it can only be felt sub­lim­i­nally. The task of covering the coun­try was di­vided be­tween Palani Mo­han and Rakesh Hari­das, both ac­com­plished pho­tog­ra­phers.

This is a labour of love that takes us from Kash­mir to Kanyaku­mari, from Na­ga­land to Jaisalmer. These pho­to­graphs cap­ture and en­gage au­di­ences from across the coun­try cel­e­brat­ing a uni­fy­ing tea drink­ing cul­ture across the length and breadth of our coun­try.

The pho­to­graphs are at­trib­uted to So­ci­ety Tea’s cam­paign, en­ti­tled Tea So­ci­ety Called India.
