Cherchez La Femme, Looking for Annie Mascarene - II

Who was Annie Mascarene?

Last month, I had bought a copy of Manorama Tell Me Why, the general-knowledge digest for children. The August number was a collection on freedom fighters. As I flipped through it to see what Manorama is teaching our children about the protagonists of India's independence movement. I saw this page on Annie Mascarene. I already had written a post about her. It only had her unverified signature. Now this one didn't have a whole lot about her, but her picture and few basic detail.
