The Feringhees

A picture is painted in this chapter of life at the Bangalore Residency in the well-run Hindu state of Mysore with all its pageantry and colourful festivals. The maharajah is seen to be an enlightened ruler who takes note of the feelings of his representative council and is devout, capable, and popular. Also Sir Mirza Ismail, his dewan—a Muslim of great ability who becomes a lifelong friend—like Barton, understands the importance of hydro-electric schemes. Sectarian troubles allegedly stirred up by Brahmins affect the universities and there are hartals in November 1922 but these are quickly dealt with. The maharajah steps up his programme of reforms.
