Advent of Shimla as a city traces its root to 1822 when the Scottish civil servant Charles
Kennedy built the first British summer home here.Later in 1864, Sir John Lawrence (Viceroy of India 1864 - 1869)
decided to move the administration twice a year from Calcutta by making it the summer capital .
Thus, from a single cottage hamlet Simla became the site of the Viceroy Council, the Imperial Secretariat,
abode of Indian princes, foreign emissaries etc. , a legacy which is hard to ignore even today.
Simla Accord is the name given to the treaty between Britain and Tibet signed in 1914 at Shimla .
Despite the controversies around it ,it still serves as the boundary between China and India.
The Simla Agreement was the outcome of the 1972 India Pakistan war that led to a free Bangladesh .
It was signed on July 2, 1972 .
Simla Conference was held to put forth certain proposals by the British to the Indian National Congress,
to further the process of allowing self government paving the way of framing a new constitution.
Some of the important proposals were to set up a new Executive Council, Hindus and Muslims to have
equal representation in the council, and the formation of an interim government which will later frame
a new constitution.The Muslim League objected to these proposals and the Simla conference ended up being a failure.
Simla Deputation was organized by Nawab Mohsin ul Mulk in 1906 with Sir Syed Ahmed Khan's son
Justice Syed Mahmood .
