Wikipedia about St. Paul’s Church at Landour

St. Paul’s is an Anglican church in Landour, India. The church was built in 1839 and first consecrated on May 1, 1840, by Bishop Daniel Wilson of Calcutta. From 1840 to 1947, the church was run by military chaplains and was the premier church for the cantonment used primarily by the British residents of Landour and the British Military Hospital during the British Raj.

LIFE AND ITS OFFSHOOTS – NOT OFFSPRINGS ALWAYS

Life n Its Offshoots-2SOMETIMES PLANNED – MOSTLY UNPLANNED

The tree with no leaves (dry or deciduous I won’t comment) in a walled space (I would not say it anything else but a perimeter with fence) – looking at this tree without leaves and extended branches – while sitting for a cup of coffee at one of the food joints of Char Dukan at Landour – and thinking of and on life in some personal moments of a wanderer’s life – this thought on ‘life and living’ comes to the conscious naturally..

THE LANDOUR DOGS

It was so magnetic to look at them and it was so good to see them shining, healthy and clean, at the iconic square of Landour, the twin city of Mussoorie, the British era cantonment, a 1000 feet or so above Mussoorie.

The Landour dogs are essential part of the Maggi shops lore (the Char Dukan hangout) of the cantonment and like the historic call of Mussoorie, the tales of the mountains and the tales of how it came to be and the famous tales of it’s legacy of haunted stories and the beauty of that, the Landour Dogs, too vie for the call. You may come across local people telling you these Landour Dogs are from the lot of the legendary ghosts of the Mussoorrie Range.
