I was born in India and trained as a Fashion Designer in the United States in the days of Mary Quant and worked for a while in New York. I then came to live in England and furthered my fashion career in a very interesting and unusual way, raising funds for various charities and running a successful fashion boutique for many years.
With a wonderful husband by my side we raised a family and bought a ruin in rural France with no electricity or running water as a hands-on project for ourselves and our sons, something that has stood them in good stead and given us many hilarious stories.
Last year I wrote an autobiography which also includes a brief history of the Parsis during the British Raj in India and my illustrious ancestors. I am in the process of completing another book about the story of women’s emancipation and education under the British Raj in India. Both books will be available from March 2018.
These three main topics are the subjects of my talks
