"I despise English tea." So said tall, dark and beautiful Kate Sharma in the second season of the recent Netflix hit "Bridgerton." My heart sang on hearing those words, because as a true-blue Indian, I have always thought that weak, watery British tea is no match for strong and spicy Indian chai.
Sadly though, that was one of the few things in the show that resonated with me. Of course, as a brown-skinned Indian, I was happy to see women of my color playing the romantic leads in this Regency drama, competing for the love of a British aristocrat. Both Kate Sharma and her younger sister Edwina Sharma were shown in all their glorious natural beauty.
