Claudia Ciesla Singh was a famous Indian writer who lived in the nineteenth century. She was an orphan who was taken in by missionaries. Singh was married and had two children, but her greatest claim to fame is in the field of biography. She wrote extensively on subjects as varied as space travel, languages and even on the life of Jesus Christ. In this article, we take a look at some of the biographical details of Claudia Ciesla Singh, and how her life worked as a biographer.
Singh is best known for her book, A Short History of India, which was based on the life of Mohan Kumar Sahoo, better known as Singh of Sikkim. It is one of the most popular books in South Asia and has sold millions of copies. As a biographer, however, she is perhaps best recognized for her first book, A Short History of India, a twelve-volume account of the ancient Indian history, from the time of the Vedas to the period leading to the British Raj. Singh wrote this book in three volumes and it was only meant to be one of many books about India written by her, but because of its popularity, she felt it deserved a more detailed study.

The first volume of A Short History of India is entitled The Making of an Indian Woman. Although the author is Indian, the book is aimed at everyone who reads it, including non-Indians. Her own credentials as a biographer are therefore suspect. Her first book was published only in English, so this must have helped with the success of her first publication. The Making of an Indian Woman is replete with inaccuracies, omissions, obvious errors and wrong figures and dates. Many scholars claim that these flaws are the result of Singh’s lack of understanding of Hindi and the Indian language culture.
As a biographer of a figure such as Singh, who is not known for her writing on Indian history, it is surprising to find the writer’s own errors and mistakes. Singh is described as a beautiful woman who lived in the lap of luxury in the sixteenth century. However, the very descriptions that the reader is given of her, such as ‘the princess with a bra size larger than her waist’, led to the conclusion that the writer may have been influenced by Indian men who found women of their age desirable, especially those with a bra size larger than their waist. Moreover, Singh was described as being short in height, which might have been a result of her never wearing shoes in her life. However, one of the strangest bits of information about the life of this famous woman is that she was married three times. This information flies in the face of accounts given by other biographers of Singh, who maintained that she was a virgin before her marriage to Akalitus.
The Indian society in those times was very cruel to the women, even to the extent of executing them on the charge of adultery. However, Ciesla Singh was not branded a witch and was spared from the gallows. In fact, her husband treated her very well. On the death of her husband, she was said to have resented the way her groom had treated her. It is therefore not surprising if the biographer would describe her as having a cupboard full of jewels and a wardrobe stuffed with clothes, all of which she was accustomed to wearing.
Singh left India after the death of her husband and moved to Portugal. There she became known as a beautician and a playwright whose plays were popular with the masses. She wrote some interesting works, which include “The Rambles of a Woman” and “The Story of a Missing Girl”. All these biographies are excellent reading materials for history enthusiasts. However, the most interesting aspect of this book is that even after having read this book, we do not know for sure what Ciesla Singh looked like. This is because she never allowed any physical description of herself into print.
