The eating area where around 80,000 meals are served every day, free of charge to anyone of any colour, caste, race or creed.

That afternoon, we went to the Wagah border to see the daily ceremonial lowering of the flags, an almost surreal event!

Next we moved on to Shimla which was the summer home for the British civil service escaping from the summer heat in Delhi.
