Ban Uibhisteach ann an India

The Indo-Gaelic connection spans more than just the one generation in my family. My mother, Anna Sheonaidh ‘ic Ghilleasbaig (nach maireann), wrote this piece for the year 2000 edition of An t-Uibhisteach (also no longer with us). Lifted from the pages of the magazine the pictures are grainy, but the text is vivid and reminds me strongly of how she loved her time in India (where she met and married my father, and with which she always felt and professed a strong affinity, in part because of her Hebridean heritage) – and how she loved talking about her memories of it too.
