The next meeting of the New York chapter will be on Saturday, Oct. 13, at noon. Member Theodore W. Scull will present a program about rail travel in India. He has traveled through India by rail four times from Chennai and Kochi in the south to New Delhi and Kolkata in the north. On his most recent trip he and his wife Suellyn started in coastal Mumbai and then continued on the Jodhpur and Jaipur in Rajasthan, northward to Old Delhi and the capital at New Delhi, finishing in the charming hill station of Shimla amidst the backdrop of the Himalayas. With a million Indians a day riding the rails, train travel in India is never dull and puts the traveler directly in touch with this energetic country.
Joe Rapaport arranged for us to meet at the Sapphire Indian Restaurant at 1845 Broadway between 60th and 61st streets. The cost is $35 including tax and tip. Please bring the exact amount to the restaurant in cash.
