The Kiplings and India: A Collection of Writings from British India, 1870-1900

Simla (Shimla)

Prominent hill station in the lower Himalayas, in what is today the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. During the hot months, the entire British administration relocated from Calcutta to Simla, and the Viceroy and many other high-level officials could be found there. It was also known as a highly festive place. In writings by the Kiplings, it is often featured as a site of high romance -- sometimes adultery.
