India with Ferdinand Mount, Glen Peters and others.
"India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend and the great grandmother of tradition" Mark Twain.
What is India to you? And what is Britain to India? Was Britain the well-meaning coloniser that brought tea and railways to India and saved it from being taken over by Russia? Or did Britain use India to fuel its industrial revolution, exploit its people and resources and leave in a terrible mess with partition?
Ferdinand Mount, Glen Peters and Peter Chand shine a light on India and its relationship with Britain.
Can Britain forge a new alliance with India following Brexit? Does Britain need to apologise for colonial times? How well is India doing on its own and what is to be made of the rise of Hindu nationalism?
What does it mean to them? What do Indians think of Britain? Did Partition destroy the bonds forged between India and the UK forever?
