Billy is an artist by profession, an environmentalist, photographer, writer and he was the head of INTACH. His wide range of interests on the journey of the self is reflected in the collection of books on art, architecture, culture, poetry, philosophy, mythology, religion. My wife Sanjiv was born and brought up in Simla, later we settled down here. Unfortunately, she passed away in April 2016. The B&B was started by her and my daughter Panita and I continue running it in her memory. This cottage was constructed in 1920, as a billiards room and guesthouse, which she inherited from father. Sanjiv was an avid gardener, there are a large variety of flowers and foliage planted throughout the property. This is a refreshing respite from the general concrete of town construction.
