Excerpt Reading: The Middle - A Story of Love, Life & Laughter by Nayana Goradia
12th July 2022 Stories that are part personal narrative, part fabrication, part documentary and part travelogue! The Middle: A Story of Love, Life & Laughter by Nayana Goradia The Middle, a short catchy piece, once earned notoriety for having seized the centre space on the hallowed editorial page of The Times of India. Nayana Goradia began her writing career in this column and though she graduated to other forms she reverted, to the old name The Middle, believing it invested her book with a sense of enigma it might have otherwise lacked. The pages here reflect upon an early childhood in a princely state in Kathiwar, to a snobbish school in idyllic Sri Lanka, which lay greater stress on young ladies learning to eat with a fork and knife than on mastering the mysteries of Pythagoras theorem. Higher study in English literature was at Washington State University and Girton College, Cambridge. With marriage, came the move to Calcutta basking in an imperial hangover. It was still halcyon days in the late sixties for ‘company wives’ with a British label. A stylish flat in swish surroundings made up for the imposing bada memsahib with an outdated protocol. It was difficult in Calcutta to escape the controversial Viceroy, George Nathaniel Curzon, who partitioned Bengal in 1905 and became the harbinger of the larger partition of India in 1947. After seven years of research, two school-going daughters with unfinished homework and a husband who felt the viceroy was becoming the other man in his wife’s life, Nayana’s biography, Lord Curzon: The Last of the British Moghuls was published by Oxford University Press and reviewed widely both in India and overseas. Nayana Goradia now lives in Delhi and advises a school. Her husband Prafull Goradia, a former parliamentarian, is also an avid writer. They have four lovely grandchildren.
