The word Gymkana is an Indian term for “meeting place”. On Friday night, Tania and I were at a function at the Delhi Gymkana Club, saying goodbye to friends finishing their posting in India.
The club is one of the most exclusive in New Delhi with a waiting list stretching to 30 yrs !!
The club has a sense of British Raj about it – no wonder as this is where the Brits escaped to after a hard day of ruling India.
Here’s an old article (2007) I found, from “The Age” about the Delhi Gymkana Club: http://www.theage.com.au/news/world/indias-defence-chiefs-fight-over-an-ageing-dowager-the-delhigymkhana-club/2007/09/21/1189881777723.html?s_cid=rss_world
We were very honoured to have been invited to this function. The women used it as an excuse to dress up in their saris and didn’t they look good in them.
Here are photos from the evening:
