December 31, 2010 My pursuit in reading some of the writers staying in the Côte D'Azur's sunshine along the Mediterranean Sea,the towns of Nice, Menton and Grasse, in the 1890's, I came across a book regards Queen Victoria's visits there, and, it was in my reading that I came across another book, Queen Victoria's Maharajah Duleep Singh 1838-93 by Michael Alexander and Sushila Anand. Very compelling reading. What a man Duleep Singh, how extraordinary was his setting forth the injustices done to him and to his family; as a retired librarian I was drawn to the Maharajah's visits to the British Museum to find the documents to support his letters. And that he was a gentleman through and through, and too, that he could be satirical, but, with a fine patina of politeness. Well, it's the holidays now, nearly the end of 2010, and I have been so very much informed by this reading, and your website. Thank you kindly. The colonizers and the colonized, that is ever a story. Sadly James Ivory and Ishmael Merchant are not available to turn Duleep Singh's narrative into a grand historical film, as "The Remains of the Day." When I see the Queen wearing the crown, I see the Koh-i-noor diamond given to Queen Victoria that belonged to the Maharajah when he was the Prince of the Punjab, as he wore it as an upper arm band. A sad history. J. Ingrid Lesley Scandinavia, Wisconsin
Is there any information about the descendants of Maharaja Duleep Singh?
Is there more information available about Bamba's mother Sophia like her full name, where she was born, what ethnic group(s) she came from and how she ended up being a slave.
A massive BIG thanks from all our family for bringing us your latest book: 'Sovereign, Squire and Rebel: Maharajah Duleep Singh and the Heirs of a Lost Kingdom'. Your hard work reflects in the precious pages of this book. In my opinion, this is probably the best ever written book about Mah. Duleep Singh that we have ever read. The information, references are in perfact order. I love the way you placed the pictures in order with the text, just superb. May Waheguru ji bless you and may you write many more wonderful books. Trillions of thanks.
Hi Love your site, it would be good if you could build upon your success by looking into the history of the femilies, the workers and their decendants at Elveden hall. There is also alot of Sikh art and weapons in UK, there is a small shop next to Christies Auction -Trafalgar square, thats selling original sikh kangra 1840 art ??!!? The royal armoury also has a huge collection of weapons, guns flags and drums from the 1st 2nd sikh wars. theres also endless number of decendants of the maharaja ranjit singh and the gurus like Mir mians decendant, or the Bhattis, the family that employed Guru nanaks dad, Faqir Khana Museum, Lahore that have amazing treasure troves. whats the next part of your project ?
