08 May A Princess Remembers by Gaytri Devi.
Daughter of a Maharaja from Cooch Bihar in the North of India and widow of the Mahraja of Jaipur. Gayatri Devi presents an intimate look at the extraordinary life of one of the world’s most fascinating women, and an informal history of the princely states of India from the height of the princes power to their present state of de-recognition.
John F. Kennedy introduced her as “the woman with the most staggering majority that anyone has earned in an election.”
A great read and a wonderful insight into a colorful history of India.
