How to Make Appealing & Unique Indian Design?

Mira Malhotra distinctly classifies the nitty-gritty of Indian design, and the reasons why it is so different from design that comes out through most of the other parts of the world. To provide perspective, she uses the contrast of European art to display the difference in the two approaches.

From colourful folk items of Kutchh, to earthy colours of block prints, or to certain organic elements like depictions of lotuses, all constitute 'Indian-ness'. Yet, it can be just the content that makes something Indian i.e. what something constitutes, and not just the way it is represented.
