WOMAN. RULES INDIAN STATE
Begam of Bhopal Has Governed Coun
try Wlsely and Wetl for Eleven
Years.
Thore have been a few opportunl
tles to know somethlng of that lntor
estlng and unusual woman, the Begam
ot Bhopal, who has for the last eleven
years been ruler of her country, tho
small state of Bhopal, ln tho mlddlo
of Central Indla.
The Begam was born ln 1858, nnd
the free, lndopendent splrlt of her
famlly ls shown by tho fact that
though a glrl her advent waa not un
welcome. Whon Bhe was' seven years old ar
rangemonts were mado for hor mar
rlage, and the boy selected for her
husband waa brought to the court and
shared her Btudlos. When the Begam
waa fifteen they were marrled,. and
strangely enough, tbo marrlage was a
happy one. Tho Begam found ln her
husband a falthful frlend, and lt ln
sald that sho jnournod hls death very
deeply.
. In 1888 tho Begam's eldest daugh
ter dled. She would have been her
helr, the flrst born, lrreBpectlve of
sex, bolng ln Bhopal the helr ap
parent. In iflOl sho became ruler owlng to
the death of her1 mother and at once
set about lmprovemonta and reforms
ln all the various stato departments.
One" ot, tho Begam's chlet intcresU
waa ed'ucatton, ;particularlly, too, the
educatlon ot glrla. She decldedr thero
fo're, to open and' 'patronlze person
ally a glrls school. Tho educatlon of
glrla ln Bhopal waa chlefly llmlted to
a Btudy of tho Koran and tho rudl
merita of the Urdu language; wlth
here and thoro some sllght knowledge
of wrltlng learned from fathers and
brpthers. But their attondanco at
schoolB and their advancomont ln gen
eral knowledge was looked upon aa a
dangeroua innovatlon.
