There are several Barbie dolls with sarees available, but I don’t think I have seen any with Bratz doll.

If you do not know the difference, Barbie is a “woman” doll, Bratz is a “tween” doll – hipper and edgier than Barbie.

Gayatri Devi was born into staggering wealth at a time when royal families governed half of India and owned the lives of a quarter of Indians. She had it all: Swiss education, schooling in England, hunting, riding, European summers, social seasons in Paris, a palace with 500 staff — and beauty. American Vogue named her one of the world’s ten most beautiful women. Her looks were well captured in a portrait by Pietro Annigoni.

As a child she was, by her own description, a carefree tomboy who adored horses and hunting. She shot her first leopard when she was 12 and went on to play her part — with other royals — in the near-extinction of Indian tigers, personally killing 27 before announcing that she would hunt no more and would become a fervent conservationist.

She was born Princess Gayatri Devi of Cooch Behar, a former royal state in Bengal, which commanded a 13-gun salute in the British-ordained pecking order. That meant it was rich. Her father, the crown prince, became maharajah soon after her birth. She was nicknamed Ayesha — her mother had been reading H. Rider Haggard’s She while pregnant with her.

Gayatri Devi’s English governesses were recommended by Queen Mary and she attended various schools in India, England and Switzerland.

In 1932 Sawai Man Singh, the young maharajah of Jaipur and India’s leading polo player, came to stay with her parents at Woodlands, their impressive Calcutta home. Gayatri Devi fell in love with him, although he already had two wives. Their secret courtship took place mainly in London while Devi was at finishing school.

Whatever the formula, she retained her sparkle for life, breeziness, regal dignity and grace. She was irreverent, quick to laugh, to anger and to apologise. She spent her summers in England, attending polo matches and presenting the Cooch Behar cup at Cowdray and Jai’s cup at Smith’s Lawn.
