M H Chalmers’ Walks

This post originally appeared on http://pradx.posterous.com on December 25, 2011. Found the post using the Wayback Machine.

While exploring the website of the Geographical Society of India – I found these gems in what is written as the history of the Geographical Society. An English gentleman, M H Chalmers, then an employee of the East Indian Railways gave three talks on what he titles as “walks”. I do not know if he means them literally or not, but these were given to the Calcutta Geographical Society back in 1934.

They are:

  • “A Walking Tour from India to England” by M. H. Chalmers on January 13, 1934
  • “A Walking Tour through Kashmir and Middle Tibet” by M. H. Chalmers on April 9, 1934
  • “A March through the Sacred Shrines of the Himalayas” by M. H. Chalmers on 21 April 1934

I would love to read a copy of these talks or see some of illustrated pictures that Chalmers showed off at these talks. Even more, I would love to meet others in the area around Bharuch in Gujarat who love to share such stories. Perhaps you can do something similar in your town too?
