Over the span of British rule in India, the children of the Raj numbered in the millions; yet their dramatic, often traumatic, stories have never been fully told. Drawing on memoirs, journals, and oral testimonies, Children of the Raj conjures up the brilliant scenes and exotic atmosphere of the Indian Raj through the rich narratives of the children themselves. Here are accounts of journeys across perilous seas and the heartache of long family separations, as children were banished to British boarding schools and grim holiday homes. The children of the Raj, so often ignored while their elders concentrated on the lofty matters of war and empire, here make their voices heard.
