Princess voted to power in India's machismo state
By Rahul Bedi in Jaipur
(Filed: 09/12/2003)


A socialite princess has become the first female chief minister in one of India's most machismo states, where warriors traditionally burnt their women alive to stop them falling into enemy hands.

"I will work to empower women and to improve the lot of the poor," said Vasundhara Raje, 50, scion of the royal family in the western desert state of Rajasthan yesterday when tens of thousands of supporters and former Rajput kings attended the swearing-in ceremony in the state capital, Jaipur.

Vasundhara Raje is the Maharani of Dholpur and was born a Princess of Gwalior, which was one the five most eminent Princely states (and one of the richest). Her birth family is extremely wealthy (billionares), and her mother was the famous politician Vijayrage Scindia, who died a few years ago.

She's also the maternal aunt of Devyani Rana, over whom Crown Prince Dipendra of Nepal shot his family back in 2001.

Mughal gem sells for record $2.2 million



Sanjay Suri in London

A rare Mughal emerald has sold for a record $2.2 million at an auction in London.

The sale of The Mughal, as the emerald is known, and other gems from India by Christie's yielded more than $7 million, the highest ever in an Indian auction.

The Mughal sold for more than twice the price it had been expected to fetch following dramatic bidding. The gem was finally bought for $2,272,400 by an anonymous bidder.

The sale price, the highest ever in an auction for an emerald, stunned the world of collectors.

The 217.80-carat gem dates back to the reign of Emperor Aurangzeb. Furious bidding raised its price a million dollars above the base price.

The vivid green emerald is believed to have been bought by a Mughal noble from Spanish traders who in turn got it from Colombia.

A magnificent diamond, enamel and emerald sarpech was also bought for close to $2 million in the auction. This too was bought anonymously.

The sarpech, set with 300 carats of diamonds and 300 carats of fine emerald beads, sold for $1,948,560, also a world record.

"A powerful momentum was maintained throughout the sale culminating in a magnificent climax," William Robinson, in charge of the sale at Christie's, said later. "Widespread interest was shown both before and during the sale in a broad range of countries."

Indian jewellery and gemstones were in great demand, he said. "Enamel jewellery from the 17th and the 18th centuries remained a strong and highly collectible area of the market." Among other items auctioned were Mughal jewellery, furniture and paintings.

Then there's the Crown Jewels of England, all of Indian origin, all "taken" from that country.

Indian Maharajahs - Jadeja

For those interested, I've jotted down a link which shows the genealogy of the Jadeja Rajput clans which ruled a large part of Western India (Kutch, Jamnagar (formerly Nawanagar), Rajkot etc...).

Gay Indian prince disowned
Hassan Mirza
Monday 26 June, 2006 12:22

An openly gay prince in India, who works for an HIV/AIDS organisation in Gujarat, has been publicly disowned by his family.

Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil of Rajpipla, who comes from one of the richest families in India, has been stripped of his title and inheritance rights by his family.

They have accused him of disobedience and bringing dishonour on the royal family.
