Everything is now fine between Britain and its former colony

“Homai Vyarawalla, India’s first woman photojournalist and the founder member of WNCA, turned 94 this year.

Her camera has captured some of the defining moments in the country’s political history.

This black and white picture of Nehru lighting a cigarette for the then British high commissioner’s wife is an absolute stunner.”


The picture is indeed a stunner. Such is the beauty of the relationship between India’s first Prime Minister and the wife of the High commissioner of a country which had till recently been ruling as the colonial power.
