However, once, willy nilly, this empire came into their grasp, they found they could do a whole lot of good. The cries of starved children, the wail of the widow, and numerous bloodcurdling practices of religious pointed to the need to eradicate such problems as famine, sati, hook swinging, and British artists tried to capture the element in Indian customs, as for instance in Johann Zoffany large painting of the of an Hindoo Widow upon the Funeral Pile of her Husband but more exotic still is the representation of these in Bayly volume.
