  •  Yes, Mnemosyne, I read them all! (4+ / 0-)

    The idea of a bunch of Brits going to Kashmir, of all places, for a ski holiday was highly diverting!  That book destroyed one of my illusions, however:  Kaye kindly let the reader know that the name of the Kashmiri city Srinagar is pronounced "Sri-nugger."

    I'd always thought it was "Sri-nah-GAR."  To me that sound was as romantic as the names of Samarkand, Timbuctoo, and Zanzibar. "Srinugger" sounds like people whistling at a rugger match.
