JAMES ACHILLES KIRKPATRICK LANDED  ON THE SHORES OF EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY INDIA AS AN AMBITIOUS SOLIDER OF THE EAST INDIA COMPANY. ALTHOUGH EAGER TO MAKE HIS NAME IN THE SUBJECTION OF A NATION, IT WAS HE WHO WAS CONQUERED - NOT BY AN ARMY BUT BY A MUSLIM INDIAN PRINCESS. KIRKPATRICK WAS THE BRITISH RESIDENT AT THE COURT OF THE NIZAM OF HYDERABAD WHEN IN 1798 HE GLIMPSED KHAIR UN-NISSA -'MOST EXCELLENT AMONG WOMEN' - THE GREAT-NIECE OF THE NIZAM'S PRIME MINISTER. HE FELL IN LOVE WITH KHAIR, AND OVERCAME MANY OBSTACLES TO MARRY HER - NOT LEAST OF WHICH WAS THE FACT THAT SHE LOCKED AWAY IN PURDAH AND ENGAGED TO A LOCAL NOBLEMAN. EVENTUALLY, WHILE REMAINING RESIDENT, KIRKPATRICK CONVERTED TO ISLAM AND, ACCORDING TO INDIAN SOURCES, EVEN BECAME A DOUBLE-AGENT WORKING FOR THE HYDERABADIS AGAINST THE EAST INDIA COMPANY.
