When they returned they left Rudyard and Trix in Southsea. This was normal enough practice: India was very hot in the summer, and health suffered (Alice had just lost a third baby); the children who did stay went to cheap Indian schools and mixed with 'inferiors'. Anglo-lndians felt that the children who did stay might, owing to their exposure to native ways, become more Indian than British. It was well understood that all the children of English parents born in India were spoiled - and none was more so than the insufferable Ruddy.
However, a year before he left the school in 1852 John went to London to see the Great Exhibition. This visit gave his life its direction. 'The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations 1851' has been described as 'one of the most outstanding success stories of the nineteenth century'; its results are incalculable. What was shown there led to the development of the Arts and Crafts Movement, and to a more general awareness of the deadness and tastelessness of machine-produced objects.
Rudyard's method of keeping out of trouble at school was going to be sarcasm, and there is really no doubt that he got in some excellent practice with Mrs Holloway. One can feel a certain pity for her. Unreligious and unscrupulous guardians, in it for the money (and many who took in such children as the Kipling brother and sister were in it for just that), treated little people much worse than Mrs Holloway ever did, and neglected them too. A person with a sense of duty, however narrow and hateful that sense may be, is sometimes preferable to a person without one.
