This is a survivor from the first half of the 20th Century a buggy. The few remaining ones are now used to carry bridegrooms on their wedding days. The mare and the buggy are bedecked with lights and flowers. Everything is backed up with a battery for power or a generator on wheels accompanies the horse and carriage. Our family had a Tonga, which was a plebian version of the buggy. We had a buggy I hear in Lahore before partition.
Perhaps in Chandigarh I was the only person to arrive at St. John’s High School in a Tonga.
