The Hindu : A case of Delhi poisoning? (842 words)
That was the life-style at the magnificent house Sir Thomas had built on the west bank of the Yamuna decorated with marble statues, oil paintings, busts and souvenirs of Napoleon and an extensive garden with grassy lawns, exotic trees and beautiful flowers.
Sir Thomas named his castle `Dilkhusha', meaning `pleasing to the heart', and occupied it for most of the 40 years that he lived in Delhi with his idiosyncrasies and love-hate relationship with the `natives'.
Emily Metcalfe was just as fond of the castle as her father, who used to recount in between puffs of the hookah, the merits of the way of life he led in his country retreat and the entirely different one of the `fastidious Englishman' at Metcalfe House, where his wife and son, George, also stayed.
