Torres/Man at cockfight:
The last programme in the series of themes and variations from the lives of the Indian princes in their own words, and those of some who knew them. 6: The Palaces of Twilight 'I had to tell them that all authority which had existed for so many years, that whole dynastic thing, would be coming to an end. I had said that what we had done was for their interest, and one old village head said in Gujarati, "That is all very well. Sir, but who will now wipe our tears?"'
