Princess Gayatri Devi
Recently Princess Gayatri Devi, the Maharani of Jaipur passed away. I became fascinated with her after reading her autobiography, A Princess Remembers. The book vividly describes the life of the former royals. I found it very interesting. She was definitely a strong woman. I came acrosse this witty writeup on the royals of India and you can read that here..
The princess was elected to the Lok Sabha thrice and had an avid interest in polo, hunting and horses. She was a celebrated beauty and was considered as one of the ten most beautiful women in the world at one time.
