Quote ...I had that quaint experience coming in to land there. As you come over the threshold there's this wonderful mixed smell of curry and poo.
Somebody had a sense of humour though as the first thing you saw as you got down was a big sign advertising Air India which said

THERE'S AN AIR ABOUT INDIA ...............

I remember it well !!

Driving out to the airport early one dismal day in the Monsoon period, and passing that same area and experiencing the sights, and smells, one of our Liverpudlian stewards said - in a broad Scouse accent - " ye'know, wack, Oxfam, they send them ten tons of wire wool and they all sit around knitting motor bikes "

Broke the depressing atmosphere !
