"AN ANGLO-INDIAN CHILDHOOD" BY SHIRLEY GIFFORD-PRITCHARD
|"Shirley Gifford-Pritchard's introduction to
"An Anglo-Indian Childhood" says:
"This book is dedicated to my two children, Christina and Mark; and to my husband Brian, with all my love."
"Beside its being a history of my family in India, another reason for writing this book is that in this, the 21st century, the Anglo-Indian community will have been absorbed through marriage into the other cultures to which they emigrated and our little ethnic group will soon disappear from this world in peoples' consciousness and in actuality."
There need be no further justification for "An
Anglo-Indian Childhood" except to say that it is also an immensely
enjoyable read. As the title implies it is a tale of growing up in India
in the last days of the Raj, up to the early 1950s, when the Giffords,
like so many other Anglo-Indian families set sail for "Blighty".
