Full Description

Sunity Devee, or Suniti Devi, (1864-1932) became the Maharini of the Princely state of Cooch Behar, India, following her marriage to Nripendra Narayan, the Maharaja, in 1878 aged only 14. She remained with her father, the reknowned Brahmo Samaj reformist, for a further two years as her husband left for London to continue his studies immediately after the marriage. She went on to have four sons and three daughters. In 1887 her husband was awarded GCIE and she was awarded CIE, the first Indian woman to receive the honour, and the couple attended Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 1898. Her husband set up a girls' school in her name in 1881 and as an educationist and women's rights activist she was closely involved in the school's establishment and running. This memoir was first published in 1921 and is illustrated with 10 photographs.
