Camp. A word we've grown familiar with this past one week. Thanks to the Met Gala. For us, in India, it was a revelation - stars had to try to figure out the term. Some nailed it. Most failed. But back here at home, it comes so easily to us. We, the land of big fat weddings and a million-other-in-between-ceremonies, are all about the over-the-top look regardless of the question whether it suits us and take it into even less consideration about what others would think of the bombast. It’s in our fibre. So much so that the world’s largest film industry, Bollywood dips into Camp liberally.
