Roger Stotesbury was on a “middle-aged gap year” with his wife Hilary and they were due to return home this month

A British man has fallen to his death while taking photos at a temple in India during a year-long world trip.

Roger Stotesbury, 56, was visiting Orchha, in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, with his wife Hilary on Friday when he plummeted 30ft (9m) from the Laxmi Narayan temple.

The couple, from Oxford, were blogging about their “middle-aged gap year”.

The Foreign Office said it was providing assistance to the family of a British man following his death.

‘Devoted couple’

Mr Stotesbury’s family said the father of two had just finished taking shots of the scenery from the 17th Century temple, about 160 miles south of the Taj Mahal.

The couple had been due to return to the UK this month, after completing their India trip.

Mr Stotesbury was taking photos on first floor of the Laxmi Narayan temple when he fell 30ft

A family spokesman said: “They were the most happily married couple I have ever known. They were just so devoted to each other.

“Roger took lots and lots of photographs, and he had gone to take some views from the temple.

“He put his equipment down and then he fell.”

On their blog, Mr Stotesbury wrote that his motto was to “die young as late as possible”.

The couple also wrote: “We took the view that on your deathbed you never wish you’d spent more time in the office.

“We’ve seen our two kids off into the wider world and we have no more caring responsibilities for our parents.

“So we thought now is the time to take a gap year and travel whilst we still have the health and energy. After all you only live once.”

In a statement issued on their behalf by the Foreign Office, his family said: “Roger Stotesbury was one of the most enthusiastic men who walked the planet, and was incredibly loved by his wife, children and the surrounding community.

“He brightened every room he entered. He and his wife, Hilary had planned their round-the-world gap year since the beginning of 2016 and set off on 1 November last year.

“They loved the last 11-and-a-half months of energetic travel, exploring from the bottom tip of Patagonia, right up through the Americas, to Canada, Australia, China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia and finally India.”

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are providing assistance to the family of a British man following his tragic death in India on 13 October.

“Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time.”

AP PHOTOS: 3 rhino calves survive Indian floods, sent to zoo


Three rhinoceros calves, rescued during monsoon floods over the past two years at a famed wildlife preserve in India’s northeast, were transported Friday to a zoo as part of a conservation program.

The calves, aged 1to 2, were taken by trucks to the zoo in Gauhati, the capital of Assam state, from the Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation near Kaziranga National Park, said Tajas Mariswamy, a regional forest officer.

Injured or orphaned wild animals are treated at the center and returned to their natural habitats or to adopted homes.

The Gauhati Zoo already has eight rhinoceroses.

Every year Kaziranga National Park, which has the world’s largest population of more than 2,500 one-horned rhinoceroses as well as many other species, gets flooded by heavy monsoon rains which force animals to move to higher ground. India’s monsoon season runs from June through September.

S.M. Singh, director of the park, said Friday that during this year’s monsoon 32 rhinos died because of floods.

Forest guards rescued seven rhinos with varying injuries and sent them to the center for recovery and rehabilitation.

Ali Fazal to become the first Indian actor to sign a Hollywood biopic? – Most talked about biopics you just cannot miss


It’s all rainbows and butterflies for actor Ali Fazal who has upped his career graph by being a part of some interesting projects overseas. The actor’s upcoming film ‘Victoria & Abdul’ also boasts of a unique storyline and an enviable co-actor like Dame Judi Dench.

According to reliable sources, Ali is in talks with a Hollywood director for an interesting role in a biopic and it will be the first time an Indian actor will get featured in an international biopic. Although the actor is unwilling to divulge details but admits that he has met a filmmaker to discuss an international project, a biopic, even before he signed up wit his new talent management agency. “It will hopefully roll in 2018. I can’t elaborate further as I am yet to sign on the dotted line,” the actor stated, adding that the world is becoming a smaller place with the market really opening up. “Filmmakers are experimenting with unique topics and I want to grab these opportunities and not get typecast.”

Meanwhile, the Indian release of his forthcoming film ‘Victoria & Abdul’ is on October 13, 2017, where Ali will be seen in the role of Abdul Karim in the movie.
