What is the idea of ‘Indian-ness’? There are clues all around the Indian way of life, the culture, the clothes they wear, the turbans that are traditionally worn and the essence of responding to the climate and creating a life around it. In this third chapter of the film ‘Doshi’, Balkrishna Doshi opines about what it means to belong to Indian culture, and as an architect.

This, as Doshi explains, becomes the the key to observing, learning and further executing.
