Following last week’s post about what young Chinese think about life, this week we’re featuring India, the second country from photographer Adrian Fisk’s iSpeak project.
The following photos show something of India’s diversity – in terms of language, religion, lifestyles – with the aim of understanding what young people think about and where the country is headed. Does it work? Take a look and tell us what you think.
