"It is the source of the British slang noun doolally tap, loosely meaning "camp fever", and referring to the apparent madness of men waiting for ships back to Britain after finishing their tour of duty. By the 1940s this had been widely shortened to just "doolally", an adjective meaning "mad (insane)" or "eccentric". The town was the setting for the first four series of the British sitcom It Ain't Half Hot Mum, set in 1945" (taken from Wikipedia).
Contrastingly, the town is famous for its pleasant climate, fresh air and good water - giving rise to many sanatoriums, respite centres and temples (Hindu and Jain).
