Shimla. What about Shimla you would be right to ask. The Indians have done to this quite stunning hill station with its Raj era buildings of splendid grandeur what we have done to Murree. Seven- and eight- and 12-storey buildings built on cliff edges; some of the ugliest architecture to be seen anywhere in the world, and people everywhere: smoke-belching buses bulging with them, rashly-driven cars over-laden with them. God, what a mess Shimla has become! The only saving grace is that Shimla is at least 10 times Murreeâ€™s size.
