    1. Very enjoyable tale of the final days of the Maharajahs as the Indian Union is formed. The important historic events provide the background for the story of one Maharajah's private life. His obsession with one of his mistresses is all encompassing and to some extent this created a flaw for me, it began to get rather tedious to hear about him obsessing about her once again. However there are enough other incidents, including a tiger hunt and a shopping spree in London, to make the thing move alon [...]


    2. I read good feedback about this book from Soros Kowasjee and bought the book. It shows the decay and decadent life of an indian prince in 1940s and early 50's. Raja of Shampur , victor , is a vain character with all the vices including a lusty picadillo nature , sloth , vanity , hubris He has two ranis and 1 permanent mistress. Mistress is able to keep him under her spell and under her control. He is unable to avoid her open manipulation and Instead caught by his jealousy for her thinly veiled [...]


    3. The novel disappointed me. It was incredibly long and boring, and I felt like abandoning it in the middle. Despite all the praises doled out by Cawosjee in his Intro, the novel failed to meet my expectations. I would any day prefer the novels of R.K. Narayan, a contemporary of Anand than this one-sided tale of foolish lust, leading to the downfall of a worthless Prince.


    4. Poignant, moving. But often verbose. Many of the extensive philosophical discussions were lost on me. Most of all though, I couldn't find any "central aspect" of the book that I could relate to.
