THE LIVES OF FREDA: THE BLOG
You can't win them all! The Lives of Freda has attracted a rather sour review in the pages of the Hindustan Times - here's the link if you want to read it for yourself.
The only consolation is that the HT have published this photo of the Misamari camp for Tibetan refugees in Assam which I hadn't seen before ... it doesn't feature Freda, but it is a very graphic indication of what life was like at Misamari sixty years ago.
And judging by the Amazon India rankings, the review seems to have given a spur to sales.
A chunky extract from The Lives of Freda has been published in the India edition of Readers' Digest. It had the title: Meet The Extraordinary Freda Bedi: An English Woman Who Fought For India's Freedom.
