The Maharani Post


Suniti Devi’s daughter-in-law, Indira Devi.  Suniti Devi’s autobiography describes her as clever, pretty, well travelled and fluent in several languages. The autobiography also notes that the seemingly impossible union had come about because Indira gave up caste and riches to be with her son, Jit.

The high-necked, long sleeved blouses of Suniti Devi’s time are gone by this decade. Indira Devi is in a 20s influenced ensemble – those shimmering sleeveless blouses seem so common at that time.  And the pearls more lavish than the simple strand that was to follow.
