A Railway tale from the Raj

Here's a short story which first appeared in Indian Railways magazine, telling about an ambitious and compassionate lady, wife of a top railway official during British times, who decided to serve the poor and needy here in India. Daphne Grantham has lived in India for twenty long years and finally decides life is worth living only if she can offer lessons to the poor children in her neighbourhood. Things take a turn for the worse when her husband Ronald succumbs to illness and passes away, leaving Daphne lonely and heartbroken in a far away, foreign land. To find what happens next, click, in turn, on the two images you see below.
