Aline Dobbie, Former Travel Editor, India Link magazine and Author, Quicklook at India

India is the Land of my birth. On one side five generations and four on the other have served, worked, lived, loved … and died in India. My late Father is still considered a Hero of the Indian Army, my ancestor was Commander in Chief in second half of nineteenth century, and my grandfather served with Lawrence in Mesopotamia and my great grandfather built revetments up on the north west frontier when he stopped being a general, and had a long relationship with the then HH Patiala.
