About Christine & her diary


I am an India-based, foreign “Overseas Citizen of India”, and I have Indian Government papers to prove it.

I am British, married to my Indian husband, Himmat Kalsia, which cunningly makes me an Overseas Citizen.  Even though I live here.  Can’t vote, however.  But can pay taxes, surprise, surprise.

After a life of expat wanderings, we moved back to Delhi lock, stock & menagerie some 14 years ago.

I write for a variety of magazines and newspapers in India and overseas. I am a photographer, represented by several stock libraries, and I am currently developing my own on-line library here in Delhi. Watch this space.

And I blog – about Delhi, India, and my take on my own little world.

I run marathons.  I climb mountains. And I have 3 other blogs.
