(PCH21) Women Crossing Cultural Borders In 19th Century India - Barbara Eaton

Fanny Parks (1794-1874) rejected the accepted role of the conventional memsahib.

Instead she led an adventurous life travelling independently through India on horseback, and by boat on the dangerous, hair-raising Ganges.

She spoke fluent Hindi and Urdu, became a close friend of a former Maratha warrior queen, stayed in luxurious rajahs’ palaces and harems and attended sumptuous bejewelled Hindu weddings.

Barbara Eaton, a lover of travel who claims that “sleeping on a mud floor on a mud yurt is no hardship”, talks about and reads from her biography, Fanny Parks – Intrepid Memsahib.
