 DESCRIPTION
spacer
European scholars and statesmen writing on Indian have been studied from a wide variety of perspectives a similar attention has eluded the writings by contemporary women authors. It is a well documented fact that many English women came to India during the colonial period and have left interesting accounts of their residence on the sub-continent. The present work Social and Cultural Depictions of India 1700 to 1850 The Memsahibs Narrations relies on writings of these women as invaluable sources in the understanding of the private/domestic domains, of narrations replete with rich descriptive details of the everyday lives of the women in the family/household, their views on gender issues, etc. as these women attempted to establish a microcosm of the family and environment corresponding back home on the distant and alien soil of India.
