Lady Maharajas Jacket
The Maharajas lost all their real power in 1947.
“Now all they do is throw expensive weddings for two people who have never met each other.” There is more than a hint of fury in her raspy voice.
“You don’t seem to be the arranged type,” I say.
“You don’t think?” she quips. “There I was, adorned in silk and jewels, surrounded by a dozen bedazzled elephants, themselves prisoners of servitude, and the people in the streets are working for pennies.”
This isn’t a new story. The idealist with a disdain for the .0001% (her own family).
Even the print on her jacket was rebellious. Animalistic. As if the jungle had come alive to devour the ambition-less. The ones who skated by. The ones who don’t get involved.
“My father never listened to me until I left. Now I’ve got him where I want him. Even the elephants will be free one day.”
I believe her.
