The Feringhees

Oxford University Press

The Nizam goes on a tour around the country and visits the palace he is building in Delhi. There is continuing tension between him and ‘the interfering Resident’, Sir William. Lord Irwin issues the Declaration of Dominion Status, but Congress politicians are demanding unconditional independence. There are hartals, and a bomb is thrown in the Legislative Assembly. Plans are made for a Round Table Conference in London. The viceroy pays a visit to Hyderabad and proves to be a charming guest. At the Nizam’s banquet, he makes a speech confirming that the Lent Officers will remain for the unforeseeable future. On the way back to Delhi, the viceroy’s train goes over a bomb but little damage is done.

Keywords:   Nizam, Delhi, Lord Irwin, Declaration of Dominion Status, hartals, round table conference, viceroy, Hyderabad, Lent Officers
