      For David...

      Homecoming still is a great feeling in the times of
      `The Global Soul', I hope you agree. I remember this
      book `The Global Soul by Pico Aiyer - an author with
      Indian parents, born in England, having spend most of
      his time in the US, and now staying in Japan. He says
      there is noting called a home for the global msoul, if
      there is - it's the new age airport. But I dissagree,
      and your mail supports my point of view. There is a
      home, one that is always calling you from within.
      Anyway, your Simla has over the time has become
      Shimla, and if in the pre-independence days it were
      the white rulers who made to the newspaper headlines,
      now we have their ghosts foing the same. I remember
      (being a journalist) several stories titles something
      like `Haunted houses in Shimla', or simpley `Imperial
      ghosts'. But besides the spirits, there are the living
      ghosts too in the city waiting for their time. But
      Shimla's saviour is certainly the globetrotter - the
      one who is looking for his roots, here and there
      (Shimla included), and that's what gives this town its
      new identity - it's the place from where the mighty
      Bitish once rules India. And it's true, the town makes
      you feel so.
