Reviews for Parvati's Dream
Tara Stuart chapter 1 . 11/11
I read in a biography of ajthor Paul Scott by Hilary Spurling that "Paul drew up a Quartet cast list with notes on the subsequentfates of individuals (Kumar landed a teaching job, contacted Lady Chatterjee, and kept an eye on the child's professional career as a singer, ..." Paul Scott - A Life of the Author of The Raj Quartet, pg. 367. So I would forget about how familiar looking this "Aziz" looks (if my hunch about him is correct). Hari could be a teacher at the Ranpur College that he walked through and wrote about in his Philoctetes column in Scott's final volue of the Quartet. So Parvati could meet Hari that way. if you still want to pursue this. You could even have Guy Perronin the story, as, at the end, he left his card at Hari's flat. Remember the last scene with Hari sitting at a desk writing (who knows? to his old schoolmate Guy?). The two could keep up a correspondence through the years. Also remember in Book One, this so-called Anonymous stranger who met both Lady Chatterjee and Parvati, heard her practicing her morning raga, and HE was never identified. He could, in your story, be Guy Perron. Perron was very keen on the whole episode surrounding the Manners matter. If you are still going to continue th i s fan fiction, please let me know. I do not want to interfere in it, it is not my intent. I just wanted you to know about the author's plan for Hari et al, but Scott died shortly after writing another book called Staying On.

Is that the end? Does she reconnect with Hari?
A. Xenos chapter 1 . 3/9/2008
Hi, I am one woman who has read the Raj Quartet (worn out 3 sets of the 4 books) and has seen the VHS and bought the DVD. I gave the VHS to a Montana friend. I just finished seeing the series over again (100th time I suppose, since first seeing it on PBS that's how far back I go) and have been muddling in my mind how Parvati might know her father someday. Also I wondered how Hari felt after coming home and seeing Guy Perron's card. It would be interesting to know he had a hole card such as Guy Perron to be there. Perron liked Harry (Hari). Something tells me that the "stranger" in the very first part of Vol. I ("Picture, then...") could be Guy Perron, who it turns out in a sequel by Scott called "Staying On" ended up marrying Sarah Layton) might have wanted to meet more people in the story. But Hari deserved so much more than either India or England gave him. The least he can have is a daughter. I wondered about this girl, who ends up being a famous musician, and it would be interesting, after listening to her sing in the McGregor House garden, if she could do a raga about her father. So go on with this story by all means.

Oh, god. I loved this-it was simply amazing. I have never read The Jewel in the Crown, but now you have me wanting to! Hopefully this will be continued, I can't wait to see who it is, and watch the story unravel. You write wonderfully!
