The Geological Survey of India hosted a 3-day meeting in April of 2005 to commemorate the centenary anniversary of the 1905 Kangra earthquake. The trip included a 1-day excursion to the epicentral region, including Kangra Fort and the Dharamshala region (now home of the Dalai Lama and a Tibetan community in exile.) The efforts and hospitality of the meeting hosts are very gratefully acknowledged!
