Mary Margaret ('Mollie') Kaye (21 August 1908 â€“ 29 January 2004) was born in Simla, British India, the elder daughter and one of three children born to Sir Cecil Kaye and his wife Margaret Sarah Bryson. Cecil Kaye was an intelligence officer in the Indian Army; and M. M. Kaye's grandfather, brother and husband all served the British Raj: her grandfather's cousin, Sir John Kaye, wrote the standard accounts of the Indian Mutiny of 1857 and the First Afghan War. At age ten Mollie Kaye - as M. M. Kaye was known - was sent to England to attend boarding school, subsequently studying children's book illustration earning money by designing Christmas cards. Her most famous book is The Far Pavilions (1978)
â€œIf a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer: let him step to the music that he hears.â€
â€œfor the public, it seemed, preferred to believe that which disturbed it least and to ignore troublesome information. Which is a failing common to all nations.â€
â€œI cannot see anything admirable in stupidity, injustice and sheer incompetence in high places, and there is too much of all three in the present administration.â€
