Victoria & Abdul - new book

ISBN: 9780752453644

The tall, handsome Abdul Karim was just twenty-four years old when he arrived in England from Agra to wait at tables during Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. An assistant clerk at Agra Central Jail, he suddenly found himself a personal attendant to the Empress of India herself. Within a year, he was established as a powerful figure at court, becoming the queen's teacher, or Munshi, and instructing her in Urdu and Indian affairs. Devastated by the death of John Brown, her Scottish ghillie, the queen had a last found his replacement. But her intense and controversial relationship with the Munshi led to a near-revolt in the royal household. Victoria & Abdul examines how a young Indian Muslim came to play a central role at the heart of the empire, and his influence over the queen at a time when independence movements in the sub-continent were growing in force. Yet, at the heart, it is a tender love story between an ordinary Indian and his elderly queen, a relationship that survived the best attempts to destroy it. History History eBook Reveals the close relationship between the Queen and Adbul Karim, her Indian servant who took the place of John Brown. Their close friendship led to a new revolt in the Royal Household, and Basu examines how a Muslim man came to have a central role in the heart of the Empire, at a time when Indian Independence was gaining force.
