India doesn’t always get the same credit for influencing pop culture as other global powerhouses like France, Italy, the UK, Canada, and the US. Innovators in India have embraced technology and channeled creativity in ways that rival the rest of the world.
In terms of style, sari couture introduced global fashionistas to the inherent beauty of Indian culture. And during India’s Fashion Week, Manish Arora strutted jester-inspired designs down the catwalk, kicking off a worldwide circus revival.
There are plenty of responses to the social issues in India as well. Bill Gates is among the investors who funded an AIDS PSA to promote safe sex. And in May, we wrote about Indian barbers who gave free haircuts to impoverished children to raise awareness.
