  • James was like no one Remus had ever met before
  • Tall, dark, handsome with a fiery wit that matched Lily’s so well
  • And an incredibly ridiculous sense of humor
  • Every other sentence was something coated in sarcasm
  • Or so unbearably romantic Remus couldn’t help but cringe
  • He had Remus laughing and rolling his eyes in a matter of seconds
  • Perfect match
  • The house was bustling with people
  • Every few seconds it was another kiss on the cheek and a merry smile
  • A brief well wish and a pat on the arm
  • ‘Did you invite everyone you’ve ever met Lil?’
  • Remus was sipping some eggnog alcohol concoction James had made him
  • And his head was starting to spin

The year is 1863. Champaner. A small village in the heart of India. The people of Champaner depended on agriculture like those in thousands of villages. A British cantonment bordered the village. Two miles south, beyond the cantonment, was the fort of the Rajah of this province. The British protected the Rajah’s domain from neighbouring attacks. They also promised the other Rajahs protection from this Rajah. Thanks to this double-dealing, the British collected a tax from the Rajahs paid by every farmer in the country. Lagaan. The submission of a portion of the farmer’s harvest to the Rajah as tax. Every Rajah collected lagaan from villages under his rule. The Rajah would keep one share and give the rest to the British. In this way, the British fist grew iron strong. Like thousands of villages across the country the farmers of Champaner toiled on empty bellies and paid taxes to the Rajah every year. Last year it rained, but very little. And this year, there has been no rain so far.
