Sakaria Prasad is an upperclass Indian woman living in London. Her husband is a high official at India House. They have a daughter, Deva, who is the same age as Daisy's stepdaughter Belinda. She has a driver, Kesin, and does not like to walk more than a very short distance, especially uphilll. She informs Daisy and Melanie Germond that in India, women of her class do not walk, and certainly not as a diversion. She has some problems with people thinking that she is a servant, or not wanting to socialize with her because she is Indian. Sakaria loves to hear about Daisy's cases.
