Two novels by John Masters are set in the fictional city of Bhavani. According to the author, in the vocabulary of the earlier novel, Bhavani is a fictional city of the Nitrunners of Bengal. To get a geographical impact on the story, one has to imagine where Jhansi really is – 25.27 N., 78.33 E. of Bengal. The Nitranars were predetermined during the Indian Rebellion of 1857 as “Bhavani” (title “Rebellion from the village heads for the mysterious distribution of chapatis”). Bhavani Junction is located on the eve of independence in 1946/47. The primary character in every novel is a British armed force official named Colonel Rodney Savage, one of the progressions of such men from a similar family.
Cristina Rossetti wrote a short poem about the fate of the Skane family in Jhansi during the Indian Mutti. It is entitled “In the Round Tower at Jhansi – 8 June 1857”. It was published in the same volume in 1862 when his more famous poem was “Goblin Market”. After some time, Rosetti learns that he was misinformed about the suicide of husband and wife as a murderous and impotent enemy (‘the wreaking havoc under the walls of the tower’), the subject of the poem But it was not deleted by later versions.
