tourist police

I was in my beloved Shimla recently. Its an all-year tourist city nestled in the Shivalik hills of Himachal Pradesh, India. If you happen to go there, you will inevitably end up going to Mall Road, the delight of scores of shoppers, tourists and locals. At the beginning of the ‘Mall’, there is ‘Scandal Point’ by which you will find one of the smartest dressed tourist policeman, you’ve ever seen.

Here, Rajesh Thakur of the Himachal Tourism Police stands guard in his colorful uniform dating back to colonial times. Ask him for something, he won’t mind – unlike the police who will probably turn you away, these guys are excellent to talk to. Also note the shining silver whistle in his leather shoulder belt.
