The Anglo-Indian Home Page Hosted by Dr Adrian Gilbert, The Anglo-Indian Home Page was set up in June of 1996 and was the first site on the web that focused on Anglo-Indian issues. In particular, the Anglo-Indian Home Page is the site where the International Journal of Anglo-Indian Studies (IJAIS) and the Anglo-Indian Wallah (AIW) are published.

Says Denna, from Germany, "I got to sit in front of a 'puter' about a year ago . . couldn't understand WHAT made my hubby sit here for hours on end, well, now I know!!! And although creating this site has DEFINITELY caused me my first grey hairs (!!) . . it has become a most enjoyable hobby and now its ME sitting here every free minute! At this point I would like to add a BIG thank you to my family, for the patience and putting up with some 'late meals' and 'unmade beds' . . . I LOVE YOU!

Margaret's Place The home of author, freelance writer and compulsive traveller, Margaret Deefholts. Spend some time, probably many entertaining hours, discovering the varied and wonderful experiences that only Margaret can describe in her own inimitable fashion. Read excerpts from her book "Haunting India", and if that doesn't tempt you into buying a copy, then you do not have Anglo-Indian roots!! This is a "Must Visit" site.

Margaret Deefholts Journeys

Margaret Deefholts, travel writer, author and photographer has opened a new site to showcase her various talents. You need to do yourself a favour and visit this site for a substantial feast of literary and visual content.


The opening quote from her homepage, "Wanderlust is a fever. It's often infectious. Usually incurable. For those already afflicted with the itch, this is a good scratching post. For those eager to catch the contagion, settle yourself in a comfy armchair, and let your temperature rise as you hit the adventure trail." sums up what is in store for the visitor.

Pepperwater.com

Hosted by Conrad Abraham, this aggresive and flamboyant new website has burst on to the internet aimed specifically at the Anglo-Indian. He claims [mistakenly] to be the first Anglo-Indian Portal, but it appears that the webmaster for Anglo-Indian Portal has forgiven him this slight indiscretion, as he will probably still be on the web when the former is long gone!! This is an excerpt from his homepage:


"The first ever portal/web site specifically for Anglo Indians. You can meet other Anglos who've moved away, blog, share your thoughts, post pictures, basically connect with other Anglos!"


So, why not visit this enthusiastic young man's site to find out what he has to offer?

Sunshine & Rainbows The home of Doreen Jonas, a firebrand from Madras (Chennai) who has a wide choice of information on her site. The two main items are tantalising recipes from her cook book "From The Raj To The Taj" and her "Message Board" where visitors from around the world post their views - not necessarily views that are supported by the host - but 'allowed' for a short period until somebody really does take offence. Worth visiting just to read some of the views, even if you don't wish to actively participate!!

Where Two Worlds Meet

To quote John, "COME, TRAVEL TO A DISTANT LAND BEYOND THE OCEANS . . . OR STOP AWHILE AND TAKE A NOSTALGIC TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE !"

More Voices on the Verandah (2012) New link created by natarajan
Women of Anglo-India

Tales and Memoirs

This book provides insight and balance into the reality of the Women of Anglo-India. We have captured not only who she was but how she lived. We have captured her as a mother, a wife, a sister, a girl friend and as a person in her own right.

Many scholars have stated that the Anglo-Indian woman was the bedrock of the community, in many cases having to be the bread winner and the home builder.

Haunting India

by Margaret Deefholts

Travel back in time to old familiar places. Re-live yesteryear: sleeping under a mosquito net on a bungalow lawn, the summer nights heady with the scent of frangipani blossoms. Hear again the distant yowl of a jackal at dusk. Walk the throbbing streets of Bombay, drop into Nizams in Calcutta. Above all, come "home" once more to that greatly loved, but now vanished world of Anglo-India.

Voices on the Verandah

an Anthology of Poetry & Prose

Voices on the Verandah is a prime example of an anthology which offers an interesting mix of reading material. As a literary collection of tales and poetry, written from a uniquely Anglo-Indian perspective, the short stories range from nostalgic to humorous, and the poetry selections run the gamut from wistful to jaunty.

The Way We Were

Anglo-Indian Chronicles

This anthology is both an eulogy and an elegy on a wonderful community now scattered all over the English-speaking world, facing extinction because of its wide dispersal, and the stretching, tautening and snapping of its India roots.

The Hunger Site

It is estimated that one billion people in the world suffer from hunger and malnutrition. That's roughly 100 times as many as those who actually die from these causes each year.

 

About 24,000 people die every day from hunger or hunger-related causes. This is down from 35,000 ten years ago, and 41,000 twenty years ago. Three quarters of the deaths are children under the age of five.
