Doing Time With Nehru - Company Message
Voices of Deoli

Journey continues on to Delhi

Last event in 2012 in connection with "Doing TIme With Nehru"

On December 7, I was intvited to be the guest speaker to a friend's extended family gathering in New Delhi's Gymkhana Club. I talked about my family living in Darjeeling and about Chinese Indians being put into an internment camp during the 1962 India-China Border War. Few, if any knew of this episode. We had a good exchange afterwards and then two members of the younger gerneration had an Oxford style debate on "Is Internment Good or Evil?" It was a lively debate and in the end the audience voted on who was more convincing. Of course, the person who chose to defend the theme that "Internment is Evil" got more votes, hands down. It was a delightful evening. Thank you Harry and Robin for setiing this up! Much appreciated.

Train from Kolkata to Delhi

On November 30, 2012, we took an overnight train from Kolkata to Delhi. Ramesh dropped us of at the train station and came onto the train to make sure we got the compartment and right seats, etc. We finally said our goodbyes and the train started shortly afterwards. 

We shared our first class compartment with two guys. We had hoped to have a compartment to ourselves, but it was not to be. The train was totally booked. One of the two fellows was in his mid-forties and the other guy was a retired MP who had represented the State of Bengal, who got on after the train had been going for an hour.

Last Day in Calcutta

Sorry it's taken me so long to write another blog.The years of writing, then going through the editing process, publication, and promotion, and then taking the trip to Burma and India. I felt totally burned out and after the holiday season, I put everything related to my book on the back burner and couldn't' find the energy to get back into promote it again. My last event connected with the book was a talk I gave to the Berkeley Breakfast Club on January 11. There were probably about 150 people and it was certainly the biggest group I've given a talk to so far.
