The Jaipurs were India's mid-century golden couple; its answer to the Kennedys, or Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. Jai and Ayesha, as they were known to friends like Frank Sinatra, Truman Capote and 'Dickie' Mountbatten, entertained lavishly at their magnificent palaces and hunting lodges in Rajasthan - and in the nightclubs of London, Paris and New York. But as the Raj gave way to the new India, Jaipur - the most glamorous and romantic of the princely states - had to find its place. This book charts a dynasty's determination to remain relevant in a democracy set on crushing its privileges.
