From Xinjiang to Bollywood, via Ladakh. (And a tale with a happy ending)

Whilst I was away yomping in Ladakh, there were a few border incursions from China, serious enough to get people worried, and – for example – to prevent our taking a boat ride on Pangong Tso, which was a little sad.

I later read in the local papers in Leh that in one incident, some Chinese agents had trotted over the border on ponies, which is such a delightfully quaint vision. Almost verging on Enid Blyton, though I would hate to sound flippant about border incursions.

And have I told you about “my” stars, including Art Malik, whom I only realised very recently would be sharing screen space with me?

Oh, I have.

In which case let me share with you this morning’s pre-July 12th bit of news. Now I play the pivotal role of A Foreign Spectator, and a jolly important micro-cameo it is, too, let me tell you.

No Foreign Spectators = no Milka Singh running to glory in Phoren Land.

Now, during […]
