Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

FAMILIES IN BRITISH INDIA SOCIETY - My talk

Date: 29th October 2018

Invited to give the After Dinner talk at the FIBIS Conference, I learned that it was recorded and can now be viewed on line - but only if invited by myself or a FIBIS Member.  Had I been aware of it being recorded I'd not have worn the distracting dangly earrings.This is the link.

I talked about my Family and it's association with India - my father having been born in the Nilgiri Hills and our family going back almost 200 years in India.  I also gave the audience a glimpse behind the scenes of when we filmed 'Real Marigold Hotel' in India 3 years ago.  Gosh, is it that long.  Where does time go.  I remember longing to be 18 and adults telling me not to wish my life away as it would go quickly enough when I was older.  How right they were.  Months and years go by now at the rate of an express train - going downhill!
