This was the Charleville Hotel in Mussoorie, now the site of the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration. When my family stayed there, we danced to the string band that played Strauss waltzes in the dining room. We took the mixture of East and West for granted. We were fond of the Charleville, as Jana is of the Victoria Hotel in the book.
