The freedom to travel the length and breadth of India would be the ultimate dream for many people. Dr. David Evans, now Director of Environment at Dorset County Council, did exactly this in the 1980s and is now giving an illustrated talk about his experiences.
Dr. Evans travelled to India for five weeks in the 1980s, making his way by train through Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh. With the support of the British Council he met the Chief Town Planners of each of the provinces. They discussed planning operations in their areas which are still based on the 1947 British system.
The presentation will include Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Shimla and the many colourful and fascinating slides will be accompanied by sound and music.
The talk is free and everyone is welcome to attend.
A donation of £3.00 is encouraged to cover costs. The event takes place on Thursday 27th March, doors open at 7.00pm and the presentation will begin at 7.30pm.
