Indian history has been one of the most peculiar stuff that almost, though not everyone, have been looking for as for India as one. Dr. Suchita Malik has done a great job highlighting the skepticism prevailing in the current political scenarios and side by side, very aesthetically, killing the prospective image of the public servants. Indian Memsahib verifies the real life of a working class family and establishes the real concerns behind it.
