  1. That’s a lovely picture, I really like the curved driveway with plant pots. The house I lived in in Pakistan was a bit like this, with archways and a verandah, although perhaps a bit more tumbledown. We had chowkidars sleeping on the verandah at nights, was that a common thing in the tea estates too?

  2. For thirty years I have studied the architecture of BRITISH INDIA and would enjoy seeing you have the bungalows put into print for myself and all to enjoy. My wife would also enjoy your novel

    1. Thirty years! I would imagine you would have great in depth knowledge about the subject. Sadly, many beautiful tea garden bungalow have fallen to ruin or been washed away by floods. I have heard several sad stories. One bungalow I know is lying unoccupied because of a GHOST!!

    1. Hi Srikant, I was most interested to know you are a tour operator. I am very familiar with Gopalpur. My father’s tea company Jardines Henderson had a small white washed two storey bungalow there where we used to go for our holidays. It was called “Waverly” – it’s right on the beach. We also used to know someone who owned a canning factory there. Gopalpur brings back many memories. Best wishes, Shona.
