Book Review: Gayatri Devi: A Princess Remembers

When DH and I returned to India this year for a visit, I picked up a copy of the book, A Princess Remembers, by Gayatri Devi. I have always been fascinated with “Princely India” – the period in history before Independence (1947) when much of the country was ruled by Maharajas. Gayatri Devi, Rajmata of Jaipur, is not only one of the most famous Maharanis in all of India, but she has been hailed as one of the world’s most beautiful women. She has lived an amazing life…

She was born in 1919 into royalty – her father ruled Cooch Behar, and her mother’s parents were the rulers of Baroda. She eventually married Sawai Man Singh II, the maharaja of Jaipur. Although she was his third wife, theirs was a love marriage. In her autobiography, she tells of her carefree childhood, how she fell in love with her husband and the many memorable events in her life. This book is an inspiration.

Personally, having had the chance to actually visit Jaipur and ride an elephant up to one of the places where the Maharaja lived helped the book come alive even more! Gayatri Devi has had many accomplishments in her lifetime, but what stood out to me was the way in which she handled herself with dignity and grace in every circumstance.
