Looking for clothes made for "British India" label

by Tuptim

There is a clothing company called "British India" with outlets in Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. All their clothes are made in India. I would like to find an outlet selling these clothes during my trip to Delhi and Rajasthan. Can you help?

Re: Looking for clothes made for "British India" label

by nav_jewel

I could not locate and neither could a popoular store here could guide me. Some big stores in Delhi and Jaipur would perhaps be able to help. IF you can, get the manufacturer's URL and if you have their telephone no (the name of the company may not be the same), let me know - i can find for you

Travel Tips for Delhi

Religion & Culture

by RAJASTHANBYCAR

Delhi-- the capital of India, reflects the cultural diversity and religious unity of India. It is difficult to define the culture and religion of India. As there is a continuous inflow of people from all parts of India, the cultural diversity is very prominent. Being an ancient city Delhi has the shadows of its past. It is said that the Delhi is losing its charm but still the glory of the past looms large its life-style. Delhi might be changing with time it has always done so but it has never shelved the past. There are discos for youngsters to swing their body through out the night, but still the Quwallies at the Nizamuddin Shrine floats in the air, the silence of the night is broken by the Prabhat ferries and the singing of Gurbani (the verses from the Granth Sahaib), the bells in the temples still tells about God being every where, the Sunday masses in Churches still attract the otherwise busy residents of India. People take a break from the hurried life during the ancient fairs and festivals like 'Phoolwalo-Ki-Sair which are still oraganised in traditional way.

Delhi shares its borders with Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab, which influence the life-styles and language of the people. Migrations from various parts of India has led to pockets of has diverse culture coming together in various parts of Delhi. For example, R.K. Puram has a concentration of South Indians, while C.R. Park has a concentration of Bengalies. Delhi celebrates Durga Puja is celebrated with same enthusiasm as Id is celebrated. The Guru Purab and Christmas carry the same colour as Dewali or Buddha Purnima. The amalgamation of various cultures, traditions, religions has painted Delhi in colour which are brought from all over India. The Jama Mazjid of the walled city is an excellent example of Indo-Persian art, whereas the Birla Temple and the Chattarpur Temple complex are considered as a blend of the North and South Indian architectural styles. Gurdwara Raquab Ganj, Sheesh Ganj and Bangla Sahib stand tall for Sikhism, whereas St. Thomas and St. Columbus toll their bells for Christians. The Bahai Lotus temple has introduced the Bahai way of worship in Delhi. Not to forget the ancient religions of Jainism and Buddhism whose genesis is in India. The monastery near the Interstate bus terminus is hub of Tibetan culture in India. Not only for the Monastery but the place has acquired fame as shopping mall. Though 'Parsies' reside mainly in western India, Delhi opens its arms for one and all.

Even St. Columbas Churchthough Hindus form the majority, almost 85%, India does not impose any official religion on its people. Through the ages Delhi has accepted, adapted and moulded itself to everything from Islam, rather from Aryan culture to Christianity. It adopted herself with the changing faces of history. It got the destroyed many times but it has retained the culture, heritage, religion and the tradition of its time for the generations to come.

While visiting these architecturally magnificent spiritual abodes, acquire prior information of the etiquettes to be followed. Taking off shoes and other leather articles and even covering the head and body in the sanatorium might be mandatory at such places. Avoid hugging and holding hands at these places.

Vip's and security drills...

by husain

The two words `VIP movement' will usually mean roads blocked off, and diversions made for traffic movement, as a minister or some such person is going past on that route. The Vip`s are always accompanied with the men in black- the `black cat commandos'. This has become a common sight over the years and thru security drills.
That being said, of late, there has been some restraint on this count by the authorities...

I was shooting a feature on these men in black, at their base a short distance out of the city. Drawn from the best men in the armed forces, these commandos are trained for anti- terrorist measures, and anti hijack operations, besides the more mundane business of protecting the politicians...

Ajitgarh Memorial (Mutiny Memorial)

by ellsasha

On the Rani Jhansi Road stands the Gothic style tower (a copy of the Prince Albert Memorial in London), which I would have missed had Mr. Uma Shanker (VT member) not taken us to view. This monument was built originally to commemorate the British and the Indians who fought on their side in 1857 against the mutinous Indians. It is a stark reminder of the incredible number of Indian nationals who gave their lives fighting for the British in this and other wars. The inscriptions on the monument list the number of men and officers who were killed, wounded, or went missing between June 8 and September 7, 1857. it also delineates between those of Indian and European orgin.

The memorial was renamed Ajitgarh on the 25th anniversary if India’s freedom. It now stands as a tribute to those Indians who rose up against the British in that same Indian Mutiny and the inscription on the tomb reads and I quote:

"The 'enemy' of the inscriptions on this monument were those who rose against colonial rule and fought bravely for national liberation in 1857.

In memory of the heroism of these immortal martyrs for Indian freedom, this plaque was unveiled on the 25th anniversary of the nation's attainment of Freedom - 28th August 1972."

Old Delhi - Chandni Chowk

by srhussaini about Chandni Chowk

Old Delhi Markets offer a variety of goods. Chandni Chowk and the bazaar inside Lal Qila are good areas to hunt for bargains.

On the streets behind the Jama Masjid, many shops sell metalware curios and old utensils, and one street specializes in paper and stationery, some of it handmade and hand-printed.

On Dariba Kalan, stalls are filled with silver and gold jewelry. Except for the Lal Qila bazaar, most businesses in Old Delhi shut down on Sunday. Curios, Jewellery, Clothes & Stationery You Have to Bargain for the best price.

Trains

by keeweechic

The railway in Delhi seems to be covered by (Delhi Metro) the mass rapid transit system which operates 3 lines and utilizes 150 stations with more to come. Delhi has Express trains to all parts of the country. Delhi has two main railway stations in both New Delhi and Old Delhi. The New Delhi station is within walking distance of the popular Connaught Place. Tickets are available for foreigners travellers at the International Tourist Bureau which is located at the New Delhi station with the main ticket office being at the IRCA building on Chelmsford Road, Pahar Ganj, (which is between New Delhi station and Connaught Place).
