Day 1 : Delhi - Shimla
On Arrival At Delhi Airport, You Will Be Driven To Shimla For 02 Nights Stay.
With All Its Intricacies, History Seems To Have Been The Mortar For Every Brick And Stone That Has Built Shimla. As The Summer Capital Of British India For Well Over A Century It Was The Seat Of One Of The Most Powerful Governments In The World. From Its Cedar-Shaded Heights, One Fifth Of The Human Race Was Ruled And The Decisions Made Those Decades Ago Affect Our Lives To The Present Day.
The Town Of Shimla Rose In The Nineteenth Century When The Gurkha Wars Came To An End In 1815-16 And The Victorious British Decided To Retain Certain Pockets As Military Outposts And Sanitaria. In 1822 The Most Rigorous Of Dandies And The Greatest Of Sticklers For Form Captain Charles Pratt Kennedy, Political Agent To The Hill States Directed That A House Be Built For Him At The Village Whose Name Is Variously Reported As Sheyamalaya Shumlah, Shimlu And Shemlah. Kennedy House Led The Vanguard Of The Hundred-Odd Houses That Were To Scatter Themselves By 1841 Over Every Level Or Gently Inclining Space. Lured By The Climate And Terrain Scores Of European Invalids Began Moving To The Station And The Only Stipulation Of The Local Chief Who Owned The Land Was That No Tree Be Cut Or Cattle Slaughtered.
In 1864 The Viceroy, John Lawrence Anointed Shimla – Then Spelt Simla, As The Summer Capital Of British India. With Lawrence Came The Viceroy Council, The Imperial Secretariat, Representatives Of The Indian Princes And Foreign Envoys. As The Town Grew To Become The Workshop Of The Empire, An Awed Visitor Observed, Every Pigeonhole Cradled An Embryo Of A War Or Death. Despite The Fact That Up To The Time Of Indian Independence In 1947, Shimla Officially Remained Only The Summer Capital, Yet The Government Spent More Time In These Hills Than At The Actual Capital Calcutta And Later New Delhi. As The Bearer Of The Viceregal Sceptre This Tiny Pocket Became The Cynosure Of British Empire. Imperial Grandeur, And All The Panoply And Trappings Of Power Came Along For The Ride. And There Was A Popular Local Saying That Went, “you Cannot Sleep The Nights In Simla For The Sound Of Grinding Axes”. A Social Whirl Of Parties, Gymkhanas, Balls, Fancy Fairs And Affaires Du Coeur Ensured That A Heady Mixture Of Scandal And Intrigue Constantly Wafted Through The Town.
