V-P Releases Throor book ‘An Era of Darkness: British Empire in India’

TIA NEWS

Vice President of India, M. Hamid Ansari Friday released book ‘An Era of Darkness: The British Empire in India’ authored by Dr. Shashi Tharoor.

book-releaseSpeaking on the occasion  Vice President said that the author rightly points out that British rule in India was effectively and regularly supplemented by “famine, forced migration and brutality” – the ‘three examples of why British rule over India was despotic and anything but enlightened’.

The Vice President said that  Tharoor has penned an interesting and engaging account of a period whose shadow on modern India remains disturbingly relevant. The book recalls in some detail the misdeeds of the British in looting India and making it suffer an agonizing and violent death, he added.

The Vice President said that the economic deprivation was one aspect of the colonial rule and more serious was its impact on the minds of the subjugated and on the totality of their existence. A set of questions do need to be raised like how did the British succeed in enslaving India with such ease, was there an India as a cohesive entity and did these lead to active or passive resistance, he added.
