Stories From the Raj: Sahibs, Memsahibs and Others

Pran Nevile (Author)
Synopsis Stories from the Raj takes one into the lives of Sahibs and Memsahibs, and offers an array of entertaining tales about their interests and lifestyles-from the Sahibs' enthusiasm for nautch parties and pig-sticking, to the First Imperial Durbar in Delhi, to intriguing stories about Brahmin astrologers, and fascinating accounts of jugglers adept at the great Indian rope trick. Nevile's prose has the relaxed, easy familiarity of a veteran dinner-table raconteur, and the narrative, interspersed with period paintings and photographs, transports the reader to another era-the Raj, its set of cultural idiosyncrasies, and a colourful cast of mavericks and their eccentricities.
