A grandmother’s legacy: Serendipity follows me on my journey

Through a short and fascinating glimpse into the lives of my ancestors, we learn more about my own journey in the realisation that with both parents now elderly and frail, that the passing of their lives would mark the end of an era of those generations which went before me who were part of a chapter of British Indian history.

This talk is truly inspiring for anyone who recognises the importance of preserving a family heritage, it’s also an entertaining presentation in which we discover the ambitious lengths one would go in order to achieve the impossible and the outcome of one’s efforts in a positive and delightful way. Serendipitous stories which reflect the journey from start to finish enhances this charming illustrative talk.
