Another lens to view British-India relations on Indian Independence Day

Friday, 18 August 2017



This week, as India celebrated 70 years of independence from the British, I've written a piece suggesting there's an alternative lens to view the history of the two nations. A history not solely defined by the Raj, but one that evolved during a window in the mid-eighteenth century before British rule became entrenched. I’d even argue that to fully understand 1947, you have to understand how the British entered India in the 1770s. I hope you enjoy!
