    • Yes, I was so taken aback that at first I wondered if I’d misheard – and am still unsure if I should have used the clip at all..

      It was the novelty of seeing a field of sunflowers in southern India that made me take the picture – though as sunflower oil is increasingly used here as the low-cholesterol option, I guess there must be untold acres of them somewhere…
