GEH worked in Lahore and Northern India for a number of years as an architect for the British government in India.

My father loved India and where I think he was happiest. He spoke both Urdu and Tamil. Words like Poochie (small insect) was commonplace to me as a child. Gulabjams and jellibees (Indian sweetmeats) were in my vocabulary long before food from the subcontinent was popular over here.
