About this book

Introduction

The Royal Counsellor to the Maharajah of Patiala and his family, used to the trappings of court in a feudal society and unquestioning subservience to 'family honour', are overwhelmed by changes in the newly-independent nation. They cling to the crumbling mores of the old order, unsuccessfully and with tragic consequences.
