A Child Widow’s Story
A Child Widow’s Story
Description

Back of the Book

 

“It was a hot afternoon in May in 1961 when I went there for the first time, and the bougainvilleas which climbed over the facade of Sister Subbalakshmi’s house were all in bloom ... Just as I reached the veranda wall, I saw Sister sitting on the swing, swaying’ gently backwards and forwards...”

 

Monica Felton, after a lifetime devoted to public service in England, had been in Madras for a little over four years when one of Sister Subbalakshmi’s nephews suggested that she should try to persuade the old lady to tell her the story of her life. Intimidated at first by the prospect of doing so, she was pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful and charming lady. The first meeting was to be followed by many others and the result is this stirring and engaging biography of one of India’s greatest social reformers who changed the lives of the young child widows of southern India forever.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
