Delhi Diary

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. ┬áCan pay taxes.

After a life of expat wanderings, we moved back to Delhi lock, stock & menagerie in 2005, to our forever home.  During our expo years we lived in France, Mauritius and South Africa, countries which, understandably, do feature a lot in my writing.

I write. I run marathons. I climb mountains. And I’m a photographer, represented by several stock libraries.

And, of course, I blog – here in my Delhi Diary and also in my 3 other blogs (here, here and here).


  1. Hi Christine,
    I came to your blog through Indian Top Blogs directory.
    I am an indie writer from India and have recently finished a book with Indian setting, which I am sure you will like to read. I am sending a small blurb and Google Books link so that you could browse the initial part of the book. If you find it interesting, I will send you a pdf/ ebook. If you review the book on your blog, it will be a great help to a new writer.
    Revenge: literary fiction.
    Revenge is a story based in Uttarakhand hills and Delhi slums. It is the story of a timid boy who becomes rich and powerful as he grows up under a crime don. He decides to take revenge against an honest public officer who had gone against his dream project. The revenge takes a U-turn, but that is the way it had to.
