This chapter discusses how Rukhmabai’s resistance in Farran’s court raised to a new plane her challenge to both colonial law and indigenous social authority. The case was finally settled in July 1888, when Dadaji accepted two thousand rupees from Rukhmabai to satisfy all costs and agreed not to execute the degree against her.

Keywords:   colonial law, indigenous social authority, resistance, Rukhmabai, challenge, Farran
