          Two streets away from Delhi station and the porters start knocking on the car window - they know its quicker to walk than for the car to negotiate the station forecourt. Porter with official badge unloads car at entrance without asking then mumbles something about 1000 rupees - I refer him to my son who applies the assertive style of a vetran Delhi …

In 1947 Mountbatten, Nehru and Jinnah held talks here in the run up to Independence and Partition. We took a tour around the grand panelled interior, the state rooms hung with photos of ...

          ... at a food court in the gardens. No-one speaks a word of English so we point at some things that look like potato cakes, freshly cooked on the griddle and hope for the best. Our plate arrives and looks nothing like what we ordered, but in fact the potato cakes are on the plate but heavily disguised under curry and dahl.
