This post is part of the Anglo-Indian Project Christmas series 2016.
Once upon a time there lived a wise young lady named Elaine Cynthia Hassett. As a troublesome baby she gave her parents, David and Edith, sleepless nights. Her father would have to walk up and down the garden with Elaine at 5.30 in the morning to keep her quiet.
Until finally Elaine was survived by thirteen grandchildren and fifteen great grandchildren (at the time of writing). Her legacy lives on.
