Book Description
Until Independence in 1947 when India became free of British governance, two-fifths of the Indian sub-continent comprised over 565 princely states ruled by Maharajas, Rajas, Ranas, Jams, Nawabs, Mirs and one Nizam, who was once considered the wealthiest man in the world. Collectively, they were called the Indian Princes – for Kings they were not sanctioned to be while Britannia ruled the waves, despite the fact that the family trees of many rulers were more ancient than that of the British monarchy. Around fifty years before Independence when the ‘horseless carriage’ – as the automobile was defined in archaic terms – made its way to India, it the new-fangled, four-wheeled mode of transport, the fabled Maharajas discovered an enthralling new passion that was to endure for many decades.
