Really, Your Highness!
‘Really, Your Highness! tells the story of three Princely States-Chattargadh, Pisshengunj, and Fateypur-linked by centuries of kinship and conflict. Into this they drag British Viceroys, Residents, Military Secretaries, Memsahebs and visiting Royalty. The utterly different Rajput and English frames of reference, attitudes, upbringing, and conduct in the council chamber, sports field, battlefield, and the world at large result inevitablyin muddles and misunderstandings. These are the cornerstones of this book.’
