India 2018 or 29 years to return to complete my journey of 1989

On 12th April 2018 received an invitation to the wedding of my friend Ravi's daughter to take place in Pune on 26th December. I last visited him and his family in December 1989. My planned journey was interrupted when my passport and cameras were stolen from the train on the way to Kanpur. So I decided against going into the Punjab. It took sometime to obtain a temporary passport from the British Embassy in New Delhi.
