When it opened in 1903, the Taj Mahal Palace was the first hotel in India and the first to have air conditioning, electricity and a licensed bar. This obsession with the new continues with the hotel’s deputy General Manager Parveen hosting Christie’s first ever auction of Indian art in India – and the hope is that Mumbai’s super-rich will break a world sales record. We’re with concierge Satish – the man who can get you anything – as he plays Man Friday to regular guests Peter and Suzie Noble who have shipped their vintage car from Essex to tour around the Indian subcontinent. And Anoushka Shankar – sitar player and daughter of Ravi Shankar – returns to the hotel where her father first taught George Harrison to play.
