The Kashmiri shawl, the predecessor of the contemporary cashmere pashmina shawl, is a type of shawl identified by its distinctive Kashmiri weave, and for being made of fine shahtoosh or pashmina wool
The origins of the Cashmere shawl and the lock of hair folded in it must hold the key to Nerys’ veiled past, Mair assumes, and so she journeys to the Kashmiri town of Srinagar where Nerys lived during World War II.
Being seated one evening at my writing table, about to open a packet of newly arrived stationary, a noise resembling a stifled sigh startled me. I looked up and listened, but all was again silent. Thinking that what I had seemed to hear might be the mere effect of imagination, I resumed my occupation, but had scarcely cut the strings that bound the package before mentioned, ere the same sounds were repeated still more audibly. Upon this I rose and examined every corner; not I confess without the same sort of sensation which schools boys are said to feel, when they whistle by night in a church yard. My search was, however, fruitless.

Rajasthan, Delhi and Agra are the jewels in India's crown. From fairy-tale palaces and epic forts to dizzying festivals and wildlife encounters, this is India at its unbeatable Bollywood best.
