Danny Boyle, director of Trainspotting and his latest flick Slumdog Millionaire, talked recently about the experience of filming in India. Besides describing the smell as “humanity, which is our excrement, and saffron, and then excrement again”, Boyle also had some kind things to say about the region’s vegetarian offerings.

“If you’re a vegetarian, you could not go to a better place in the world”, he said. “I’m not a vegetarian, but it is wonderful, and there’s more choice there than anywhere, because it’s a vegetarian nation, although they do eat meats. That food is extraordinary.”

Boyle also said that India is lightyears ahead of any other country in terms of recycling. “It is a bit hippie, and I was never a hippie—I was always a punk—but you do go there to learn,” he said. “You learn about yourself, and obviously about those of us who occupy this planet. They always recycled in India, and we recycle now, because we’re desperately trying to catch up with the fact that we’re destroying the planet. But they’ve recycled forever in India. It’s part of the whole way the nation is built. People throw things away, but as they do it, there’s a whole other class of people who pick those things up.”

Check out the rest of the great interview here. Slumdog Millionaire opens this weekend.
