I'm sure other people have been to Bombay. The odds on it just being you are about 4 billion to 1

Yes, the only identification of the actual location visited was "Bombay", so that was the basis of my response.

However the answer remains valid for any location you care to mention.

What about the part in the subject heading where they identified the actual location visited as being Freddie's house?...

Or the post itself which says "the house where Freddie used to live in Bombay." That was my point exactly.

I know what you mean.....considering the garbage posted here on a daily basis by the spammers, you would think a reasonable post such as the one above wouldn't be met with such smart assed remarks. Ah well, it takes all kinds I guess.

What was it like? Is there any recognition (ie. plaque) in front of it?

I live in Bombay and to my knowledge Freddie has stayed in St.Peter's school in Panchgani.

If he has a house in Bombay, can you give me the address?

OK, given the assumption that there was a specific address, is it possible that nobody's been there since some 12 year old pianist/boxer left 40 odd years ago?

...and I'm suitably positive about those who are not inane....

But there's no way to be sure. Perhaps the street was closed due to a new highway or something, so no one ever walked those streets again...

Considering Bombay, it is next to impossible...

The only chance would be that the house is left as it was then...

the kids probably grew up thinking it as a bhoot bangla (haunted mansion).

Anyway, please provide the address, I will get you all pics...

Unless I'm wrong, I believe Freddie's only residence in or near Bombay was the St. Peter's School for Boys in Panchgani, about 65km north of the city. I believe Freddie's parents and sister remained in Bulsar, in northwestern India, and he only saw them once a year. I don't think they ever lived in Bombay as a family. That picture of Freddie and Kash together as youngsters was taken in Bulsar during one of his home visits.


Thank you, God bless you, sweet dreams you lot of tarts, Good-bye!
