The book has made me relook at queen Victoria during this late stage in her life. She was so hardworking, principled on matters and equally isolated, even lonely. Hafiz Abdul Karim aka Munshi seems to have given companionship and unwavouring loyalty despite being so hated. There are many moments where I had to remind myself this was the late 1800s. Queen Victoria was a pioneer of equal opportunity so it seems. Good read.
