THE STORY OF INDURAJA by Hilda Wernher

THE STORY OF INDURAJA

KIRKUS REVIEW

By the author of My Indian Family (John Day), this is an idealized story of upper class Indian life and the rooky road to reform, as seen through the eyes of an Indian girl of high birth. With her husband, third and favorite son of a reigning Prince, she had been strongly influenced by Western culture, but his death occurs before he had time to effect any progressive changes. As his widow, working against the powerful influence of her father-in-law and her traditional position as a widow, she at last succeeds in obtaining permission to visit her father, Maharaja of another state, and in carrying out her plans for a health center for mothers and babies. The inconsistencies of the English attitudes, the traditions and customs, intrigue and movement of the upper class Indians in an understanding rendition.
