The year: 2030
The Place: Rajasthan, in the Indian sub-continent
The report: the travel diary of a tourist travelling around the country, accompanied by his local guide.
As I board the aircraft of RajAir, I am struck by the hospitality of the smiling stewardesses and their peculiar uniform: a sari with a dark maroon coloured sash worn around it. As I travel the country later, I realize that the maroon coloured sash has become a way of life in this part of the world.
