China in the 1960s and 1970s: ‘Yanjing Group’, Beijing, 1964-65

I worked at the Indian Embassy, Beijing, from August 1963-August 1965, as third/second secretary (after Chinese language studies at Hong Kong). I served a second spell in Beijing, as the No. 2 in the Embassy, in 1970-72. Recently, winnowing old papers I chanced upon a 3- page list of restaurants in Beijing, probably produced in 1964 by the British Office in Beijing (Annexure 1).1 Thereby hangs a tale.
