Atiya Fyzee arrived in London in September 1906, when politics in Britain was undergoing major changes. London at the time was still a great imperial city, the nexus of the British Empire’s political authority, financial power, and commercial dominance. Atiya met many different individuals over the course of her stay, including former colonial officers and British gentry, famous Muslim reformers, and nationalist leaders. Based on Atiya’s account of her encounters with local elites and prominent Indians in London, this chapter discusses empire, Britain’s thriving social scene, and diasporic communities in Edwardian Britain. It notes the comparative frequency of mixed marriages between Indians and Britons and Atiya’s time spent with fellow students and staff at the Maria Grey Training College.

Keywords:   Atiya Fyzee, Britain, empire, London, politics, prominent Indians, diasporic communities, mixed marriages, Maria Grey Training College
