About the Book:

Born in Patna in 1936 Elizabeth James, nee Faithful grew up in a world
which no longer exists - the Raj, and from a childhood steeped in British tradition saw
the changes which took place with Independence, partition and the subsequent refugee
settlements.

In this book she has tried to portray something of the lifestyle of Her
forbears but most of all to immortalise a lady who played a large and important part in
both her own and the life of all her siblings.

"My mother always said she was a ‘true
Anglo-Indian’" she says - in that the original term was applied to those of
European extraction (mostly British) who lived in India. Those of mixed parentage were
first referred to as Eurasian - a fact which they often tried to disguise. Many romantic
films and books such as "King of the Khyber Rifles" tried, not very successfully
to portray this. As the years went on and mixed marriages became more and more common, it
came to mean anybody with one parent of European extraction and eventually covered a much
larger range!

Her writings try to record life in the twentieth century for Anglo
Indians drawn of course from her own experience as she feels that she is probably one of
the last remaining of her generation and that the story of these people will "slip
into anonymity".



Anglo-Indians, by Elizabeth James Faithful
