During the twilight years of the British Raj, Braham spent much of his boyhood in India where, in the mid-1930s, he attended a boarding school in Darjeeling for four years. Dwelling within sight of the magnificent spectacle of Kangchenjunga exerted a strong influence on him. After early trips to Sikkim he joined the Himalayan Club marking a threshold of half-a-lifetime of adventures and activities in the mountain ranges spread across the northern regions of the Indian sub-continent, from Sikkim in the SE to Chitral in the NW. His halcyon years extended from 1942 to 1972, part of which corresponded with the Himalayan Golden Age in the 1960’s when an international frenzy developed for climbing the world's highest mountains. Braham's final work on his life and times in the Himalaya is an insight into the Golden Age of Himalayan exploration
