Much against his father's will Dhingra
boarded a ship leaving for England in July 1906. After several days of sea travel he
reached England at last. Dhingra joined a University for the engineering degree in the
month of October.
Dhingra was overjoyed to be in England. He felt like a bird released from the cage
after many many days of imprisonment. He was free, he was happy.
Dhingra used to take pleasure in wearing costly, smart suits; he used cosmetics and
scents, and spent hours together before the mirror combing his hair. He liked to go for
long walks in the streets of London in the evenings. He indulged in merriment in the
company of friends, both boys and girls.
