century successors is also uite interesting Those looking for a detailed picture of anra would be well advised to pick this up though those Melody on Loan expecting a love story might do better to avoid it The White Mughals Love and Betrayal in Eighteenth Century India by William Dalrymple is a tour de force of historical writing Packed with the results of an unbelievablynormous amount of research and detective work it is highly detailed yet it flows like a good novel It gave me great pleasure reading itUntil the first decade of the 19th century Europeans living in India had no difficulties with cohabiting and having sexual relations with the local Indians whom they The Toll-Gate encountered Many of them often abandoned their European habits and adopted the oriental lifestyle of the people with whom they were living This interracial mixing and cultural interchange is the subject of Dalrymple s masterpieceThe author centres his study on the life and loves of James Kirkpatrick 1764 1805 who became the British Resident at the Nizam s court in Hyderabad Having already had one child by the mysterious Dark Girl Kirkpatrick was clearly attracted to the Indian female One of these females of aristocratic descent became attracted to the young Resident Kirkpatrick reciprocated Khair un Nissa s amorous interest in him and by 1801 not only had they married but also he had become a Muslim They had a son and a daughter Kirkpatrick s marriage to an Indian and his going native was not an isolated incident Many of his peers in the East India Company started multi racial families as well as adopting wholly or partially the Indian ways of life At first this was not much frowned upon by the Company officials in their headuarters in Calcutta but with the arrival of Richard Wellesley in Calcutta as Governor General at the verynd of the 18th century things began to change He was concerned that Kirkpatrick s amorous liaison with someone so closely connected to the Nizam s court in Hyderabad might damage the Resident s loyalty to the Company specially at a time when the Company was struggling to gain control of the Deccan the part of southern India in which Hyderabad is locatedJames Kirkpatrick s life nded soon after his happy marriage to Khair un Nissa began He lived long Empire of the Saviours (Chronicles of a Cosmic Warlord, enough to oversee the construction of his magnificent Palladian Residency in Hyderabad and its zenana in which his Moslem wife could live separated from men as her religion dictatedDalrymple traces the tragic life of Kirkpatrick s widow who lived inxile in a coastal port on the Ex On The Beach east coast of India with her mother but bereft of her two children They had been sent to England to live with Kirkpatrick s father and later his brother Their fate during a period when the British began to develop their prejudice against their Indian subjects is also described in the book This review only touches a tiny part of the tip of the iceberg There is so much to thisncyclopaedic book that only by reading it can one truly appreciate its greatness Some have criticised the Good Thinking excessive use of footnotes claiming that they distract the reader from the flow of the book Far from it not only isach and Death in Mumbai every footnote fascinating on its own but also theynhance what is already an Baccarat : La lgende du cristal excellent account of the history of the relationships between two dramatically contrasting cultures See for pictures of this wonderful buildingPS I can fully understand Kirkpatrick s attraction to Indian women having married one myself Just arrived from Australia through BMThis is the story of James Achilles Kirkpatrick and Khair un Nissa who converted to Islam and married her despite the opposition from both cultural sidesEven being the British representative at the court Finally I have finished reading this 500 page long historical romance I had tried to read it once but I admit that I abandoned it midway because I was apprehensive that I willver finish reading the book But the book haunted me nough to make me pick it up again and I Gave It Another Shot gave it another shot here is my review of the book1 As always my recommendation is that ONLY if you are a history buff pick it up It is a detailed documentation of mughal hyderabadi and nglish ra and of Mughal Hyderabadi and English ra and don t want to be Zoete tranen embroiled in a story that takes you deep recesses of unchartered territories of historyspecially if you are not fond of it2 You need some patience and focus to read this one Unlike Dalrymple s The Last Mughal "THIS BOOK WEAVES IN AND OUT "book weaves in and out the principal story Because it is not just a romantic novel it is a factual repository of historical Water Music events of the 1800s You can t blame the author for not spicing it up Because there is no physicalvidences that vocalize the turbulence of the times However Dalrymple has done Revived enough justice to piece together scraps of information from various parts of the world to make it a veritable story3 The book reveals the other side of English connection with India We Indians have been brought up with the staple diet of poker faced Britishers who spoke Hindi as if they were abusing someone I had always felt that something was amiss It is nice to know that India impacted the British in unimaginable ways and the cross pollination of cultures did happen As Dalrymple puts it India has always had a strange way with her conuerors In defeat she beckons them in then slowly reduces assimilates and transforms them4 There were some sections that tested my tenacity I must say that the book left menriched and Student Research Projects in Calculus educated because I no longer feel that history is what you read in textbooks History is what you perceive based on your own intelligence I never take history at face value again To me this book opened doors to a forgottenra and shattered xisting myths Once again Dalrymple you nchanted me Description Conjuring all the sweep of a great nineteenth century novel acclaimed author William Dalrymple unearths the fascinating story of the British Resident at the court of the Nizam of Hyderabad James Kirkpatrick who in 1798 fell in love with the great niece of the Hyderabadi prime minister To marry her Kirkpatrick converted to Islam and Love for Imperfect Things even became a double agent working against the East India Company Shedding light on the manyccentric Westerners during this period who turned Turk adopting Indian customs dress and religions Darymple brings to life a compelling and largely unwritten story of Britain s rule over India Opening On 7 November 1801 under conditions of the greatest secrecy two figures were discreetly admitted to the gardens of Govern Oh I loved this book I could hardly put it down I confess I know very little about the years before the Raj before the British Crown took over India from the East India Company so this book came as a delightful ntrancing revelation During the years of the British Raj the lines social political religious caste and class dividing British from Indian were very clearly defined and adhered to but this was not the case in the arly years of the East India Company Many officials had bibis Indian courtesans or mistresses many kept a zenana a harem of sorts and some fewer it is true married Indian wives and raised Anglo Indian childrenThis book is the story of those years when it was not deemed. To persuade the memsahibs of Calcutta to adopt the sari; and Sir David Ochterlony Kirkpatrick's counterpart in Delhi who took all thirteen of his wives out for Taking Instruction (Taboo, evening promenadesach on the back of their own Language and Linguistics elephantIn White Mughals William Dalrymple discovers a world almostntirely unexplored by history and places at its centre a compelling tale of love seduction and betrayal It possesses all the sweep and resonance of a great nineteenth century novel set against a background of shifting alliances and the manoeuvring of the great powers the mercantile ambitions of the British and the imperial dreams of Napoleon White Mughals the product of five years' writing and research triumphantly confirms Dalrymple's reputation as one of the finest writers at work today. White Mughals is the story of a romance but really it is the story of a moment in time when England and India Divertimento exploredach others worlds and cultures with great delight and mutual admiration And sadly it is also the story of how Love Is a Fairy Tale everything changed in less than a generation This is the sort of book that demolishes all of your old notions of how it happened I read into the wee hours of the night and as I finished the book this morning I instantly went back to the beginning to work my way through the copious and fascinating footnotesAnyone with a serious interest in the history of the Indian subcontinent or the Britishmpire or colonial history in general should read this bookI was struck by how much damage one man the Maruess of Wellesley governor general of India and brother of the Duke of Wellington managed to do What a different course history might have taken had men like General William Palmer or William Kirkpatrick held the highest post But alas Wellesley was merely in the vanguard of a new generation whose interest lay not in Promise at Dawn exploration and trade but rather instablishing Britain as the dominant world power at the center of a vast mpire Its only because of the name of Willam Dalrymple that i picked this one But by God what a book hats off to the writer It builds on interestingly and like one of those Sydney Sheldon novels you just don t want to put it back Always intriguing and woven in the mysteries of the oriental EastThe book sheds a light on late ighteenth and nineteenth century life and politics of princely state of Hyderabad From the Nizam to the power brokering imperialist British to a commoner in the street one gets an overview of Bangkok Wakes to Rain every thread of life The plot of the book is woven around a love tale of a British Colonel and a high born local Muslim lady its charming as well as tragic But the way the writer builds it is charming he leavesnough in a chapter to make you want Simply in love with this one A pure classic piece of historiography interestingly put on the table to devour Without having any specific interest in India I seem to have read uite a few books about India over the last couple of years and William Dalrymple has a lot to do with it I really liked his City of Djinns A Year in Delhi and I d heard many good things about White Mughals all justified This book is remarkable Yes it s a history book but you can read it like a novel Think of it as a kind of Indian War and Peace the cast of characters is The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery even larger and it does indeed address war and peace private concerns and national politics Dalrymple did an impressive amount of research and his knowledge of Indianabled him to discover some incredible primary sources that had never been translated The central love story of this book is fascinating and sheds a completely different light on the British in India Gone are the stereotypes of Victorian gentlemen in stiff suits Darkmere eating roast beef for Sunday lunch and viewing the natives as barely human Kirkpatrick and others like him integrated completely learning the local languages wearing Indian dress and marrying or at least living with Indian women plural in some cases Sir David Ochterlony had 13 wivesach with her own Et si la maladie n'tait pas un hasard ? elephant Dalrymple captures the moment when this openxchange of cultures began to change with India and its people becoming just resources to Den of Shadows (Gamblers Den exploit It also brings home just how much British imperialism was responsible for creating a gulf between Indian cultures Hindu and Muslim which did notxist beforeThe book is full of fascinating details rather too many sometimes Dalrymple obviously loved doing the research and will rush off at a tangent at the slightest provocation discussing Mughal architecture gardening practices festivals and the like sometimes at too great a length Eually if some minor character turns out to have an interesting background we will get a uick potted biography And there are lots of footnotes but you don t have to read them allSuch is the detail gleaned from letters and a contemporary Persian autobiography That You Feel As If You Know These People Except you feel as if you know these people xcept Khair un Nissa who perhaps inevitably is a

Shadowy Figure Behind The 
figure behind the of her zenana seen only through others yes So vivid is the characterisation that despite the huge cast I never found it necessary to consult the list at the front to remember who was whoSaddest is the fate of so many Anglo Indian children born of English fathers and Indian mothers who in order to safeguard their future prospects in an increasingly racist imperial culture are sent to school in England at the age of four or so and most likely never see their mothers or grandparents again Amazingly in one final twist Dalrymple manages to track down a last touching correspondence between Kirkpatrick s daughter now a mother herself and her Indian grandmother last seen when she was four A grand slow moving procession through 18th century IndiaStately processions are a leit motif in William Dalrymple s The Eric Carle Gift Set epic account of a doomed love affair between James Kirkpatrick a British East India Company resident and Khair un Nissa great niece of Hyderabad s chief minister Midway through the book forxample he uotes a source describing the massive pilgrimage for the annual festival of Mawlah Ali Some 3000 Huguenot Prophecy and Clandestine Worship in the Eighteenth Century elephants as well as some 50000 horses and load bearing camels with stalls selling fresh and dried fruit clothes and fine woolen pashmina shawls as far as theye can see immense crowds appear of buyers and sellers riders and dancers glorious tents and mountainous Fashion Design Course elephants and with tall buildingsrected continuously on Aeralis (The Frost Chronicles, either side from the Musi River to the foot of Koh Sharif Elsewhere he describes the departure of William and Fyze Palmer an East India Company official and his Muslim wife Their convoy moved slowly down through the then thickly wooded foothills of the Western Ghats Alternatives Chapter 2 (The Chronos Files; The Shattered Saga even by the standards of the time the Palmers traveled heavily and James was astonished by the sheer number of bullock carts transport cattlelephants baggage camels syces sepoys bearers and Fyze s dozen females presumably her attendants In many ways this book is just such an unwieldy procession Encompassing a vast sweep of cultures and Cincinnati and Other Plays events the book plods forward at anven unhurried pace This allows the reader to take in all the sights Speak Out! en route but at times I confess I hankered for a swifter means of transportation through a terrain that became almost monotonous in its splendor Dalrymple s account is ostensibly a story of the love affair between James and Khair but their relationship unfolds before the great tapestry of politics and intrigue that was late 18th century India As such there are dozens of major and minor personages to keep track of Even with the help of an introductoryleven page list of dramatis personae and two complete family trees one for the Kirkpatrick s and the other for Khair s Shustari family the reader may find keeping all the names and alliances straight to be a daunting task My chief complaint however is that Dalrymple seems to have been unable or unwilling to sufficiently distill four years of research to make his book accessible Almost I Like You the Best every page is festooned with references nearly a thousand all told and copious footnotes He introduces a subject any subject regardless of how trifling and then rather than concisely summing up what the reader needs to White Mughals is the romantic and ultimately tragic tale of a passionate love affair that crossed and transcended all the cultural religious and political boundaries of its timeJames Achilles Kirkpatrick was the British Resident at the court of the Nizam of Hyderabad when in 1798 he glimpsed Kahir un Nissa 'Mostxcellent among Women' the great niece of the Nizam's Prime Minister and a descendant of the Prophet Kirkpatrick had gone out to India as an ambitious soldier in the army of the East India Company The collectors encyclopedia of antique marbles eager to make his name in the conuest and subjection of the subcontinent Instead he fell in love with Khair and overcame many obstacles to marry her not least of which was the fact that she was locked away in purdah andngaged to a local nobleman Eventually Now or skipping it altogether if it has no direct bearing on the tale he hares off whatever line he was originally taking and The Philosophy of Giambattista Vico expounds at length upon a new topic Pages later he returns to his original theme but by that time the reader has forgotten what it was Thus the reader is treated to sometimes fascinating but often tedious treatises on the major Mughal festivals methods of abortion in 18th century India Mughal gardening methods rites of passage for Mughal children pigeon keeping British colonial architecture Islamic astronomy and dozens of other topics of peripheral importance to the tale Likewise with the introduction ofach new East India Company or Mughal court official the author digresses to give a full account of that person s life and character up to that point Dalrymple obviously loved researching the book and as he makes it clear in his introduction he was most fortunate to unearth previously unknown sources and in particular to find the key to deciphering Lone Star Standoff encoded letters between James Kirkpatrick and his brother William However in his zeal for the chase he too often makes his uest for the story part of the central narrative It s intrusive He s also much given to uoting at great length from his sources Almostvery other page seems to have a great chunk of correspondence inserted into it I couldn t help but wish a firmer Punishment Of The Cheating Wife editorial hand had been applied With all its faults however this is a beguiling book in many ways Dalrymple s central thesis is that before the 19th century British and Indian cultures were closely interwoven and hybridized than previously thought James Kirkpatrick was one of a number of notable White Mughals British East India officials so sympathetic to local customs and Indian cultures that often they converted to Islam or Hinduism usually before wedding Indian women However James and Khair were ultimately victims of a growing hardening stance of the British who came to look upon India less in terms of a rich culture met onual footing and from the vantage point of an imperial power greedily More Punishment For His Cheating Wife exploiting a resource As Dalrymple makes abundantly clear the personalities and failings of certain East India Company officials most notably Lord Wellesley the Governor General from 1798 1803 were responsible for this hardening stance In many ways thexploration of the complex workings of the British East India Company s policies military campaigns and Decision economics is just as central to the book as the similarly complex fate of James and Khair the star crossed lovers I have a lot of admiration for this author s Nine Lives and The Anarchy is highly informative But this book is supposedly a love story which isn t actually all that well documented and for which the author puts on heavily rose tinted glasses to ignore the fact that the participants were aged 35 and 13 and that we know almost nothing about her life thoughts or feelings In reality the book is in part a biography of East India Company official James Achilles Kirkpatrick and in part a very detailed and heavily footnoted account of the British presence in India from about 1798 1806So Kirkpatrick was a Resident of the East India Company in Hyderabadssentially an ambassador to the princely court there a position from which he built himself a monumental residence and negotiated treaties that strengthened the British and weakened the Hyderabadis at times he felt bad about this but not bad nough to resign He wrote a bunch of letters which from a modern point of view look awfully patronizing referring to the Nizam or local ruler as old Nizzy or giving himself credit for convincing the Indian authorities to do any useful thing they did it s hard to parse this stuff because the author never addresses itKirkpatrick also at the age of 35 slept with a 13 year old girl from an aristocratic Muslim family whom he got pregnant and then married Now I know that conventions about age and sex were different in many historical time periods but that doesn t mean many of the resulting relationships were healthy nough that we should romanticize them today and rather than talking about the issue at all Dalrymple seems to hope readers won t notice In fact his description of the When Fox Is a Thousand early years of this romancentirely obscures the age issue by stating vaguely that Khair un Nissa was probably in her 100 Innovations of the Industrial Revolution early teens when they met and then uickly moving on That uncertainty was apparently cleared up in Dalrymple s own mind by the later chapters at which point he states without ambiguity that she was 19 when their oldest child was 5 Dalrymple further tries to paper over the consent issue bymphasizing the fact that Khair un Nissa s male relatives and Kirkpatrick himself when accused of rape by a THIRD PARTY FOR WHAT DALRYMPLE INSISTS party for what Dalrymple insists purely specious and political reasons to drive a wedge between her male relatives and the British portrayed her as the initiator Which in my mind just makes it worse most of us would be pretty disgusted by a 35 year old man Taken The Anthology excusing himself with but the 13 year old totally initiated regardless of whether it was true in part because this is such a common line in the sex offender playbookspecially since Khair un Nissa s own voice is Schematic Design entirely absent from the book None of her letters survived and she s viewed almostntirely through male The Second Sister eyes The couple go on to get married and have a couple of kids whom he insists on shipping off to his relatives in England at the tender ages of 5 and 3 at which point they re forbidden from corresponding with their mother or her relatives We don t actually know much about their marriage because Kirkpatrick didn t write much about it but the author infers a lot Both parties then die young Dalrymple insists on viewing Khair un Nissa as a tragic heroine throughout based on what seems to be pretty scantyvidence In a place and time when medical knowledge was still uite basic and a doctor Perfect Match (Girl Talk, even feeling a woman s pulse was reserved for serious circumstances I wouldn t infer that she died of a broken heart from the simple fact that the doctor couldn t pinpoint the causeAt any rate Dalrymple never reckons with the fact that his supposedly beautiful true love story involves a middle aged man and an adolescent girl and has little to say about the fact that we don t hear her voice at all But then the relationship is only a focal point of a book that is largely comprised of the author sueezing in whatever bits of history seem to have caught his fancy Someone goes to a festival and we get a 6 page history of the festival and description of relevant buildings Someone visits Calcutta and we get 6 pages describing its society Someone remodels a building and we getndless discussion of architecture and the hiring of workmen It can be pretty interesting but it also makes the book uite dense Curzon especially with all the tiny footnotes which I think are overkill for a non academic work The publishers could have made the book much readable by actually naming the chapters and sections and making sure to space out section breaksvenly to make it AHS Encyclopedia of Plants and Flowers easier for readers to find what interests them Instead it s a wall of text full of tangents andxtraneous details no wonder many readers were frustrated I nearly gave up on it myselfDespite all its flaws though I did find the book interesting and in the nd did read it all I do appreciate details and specifics and this.
