Dear members of the list,

Thank you, everyone who responded to my query about the Arabian Sea.

I fear I am being importunate but wonder if anyone knows where the
haldii-ghaaTii is, that is the place where Akbar defeated Rana Pratap. Does
haldii mean "turmeric" here? Presumably it would be the valley of a
Turmeric River, but I have never heard of such a place.

Thanks again,

Ruth Schmidt
