BiographyI am Anglo-Indian, educated by British missionaries at an elite boarding school in Panchgani, a hill-station beyond Bombay. My husband's career with the British Diplomatic Service and my own assignments overseas interwove history, religion, politics and sociology. Two MAs, in Language and Literature and a PhD at London University have integrated the poetry and prose of my life in cultural insights which yield personal, professional and political efficacy.
