DESCRIPTION

Love & Passion Amidst Turmoil: British Era Romances in India 

The British era in India was filled with change, upheaval, and colonialism. But amidst it all, love and passion thrived, with romances as tumultuous as the times themselves. 


Famous romances of the era included:

Robert Clive & Margaret Maskelyne: A passionate affair despite Clive's marriage, their love letters reveal the depth of their feelings and the challenges of secrecy. 


Lord Curzon & Mary Leiter: Drawn together despite Mary's engagement, their romance led to marriage, grand social events, and a shared love for India. 


But not all love stories were happy:

Lord Mountbatten & Edwina Ashley: An affair plagued by scandal, heartbreak, and tragedy, their love endured until Mountbatten's death in 1979. 


These romances remind us that even in challenging times, love can still flourish, and powerful emotions can be ignited.

MUGHAL IMAGES
