Here are some color photos of India’s Travancore Sisters, snapped long ago by my family’s friend George E Miller II. Thanks very much to his son George E Miller III for digitizing them and sending them on.
Left to right: Ragini, Lalitha, and Padmini.
Their matching outfits suggest that they had a publicity or social obligation to fulfill, something more than just hanging out on a weekend morning. Lalli looks mischievous and Pappi quite demure. Had they a joke up their sleeve? Also, who was the shadowy figure in white looking through the window?
A lovely picture of Ragini, the youngest sister. Could the color of her sari match the bougainvillea blossoms more perfectly?
