A charming account of life before British independence and the time of the Indian maharajahs. Gayatri Devi was the third wife of the Maharajah of Jaipur, the daughter of the Maharajah of Cooch Behar, and the granddaughter of the Maharajah of Baroda. In this book she recounts life growing up in India and the European continent, as well as some of the rituals and ceremonies that governed her life in India. She talks about her political life, as well as entertaining such personalities as Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, as well as Jackie Kennedy.

It's a very good read, and recommended for anyone wanting to glimpse life in a time gone by.
