What are the consequences of Empire? Do they ever fade? In this follow-up to his bestselling book Being Indian, Pavan K. Varma takes a long hard look at our cultural psyche, sixty years after India’s political liberation from Western colonial masters. Examining modern history, contemporary events and personal experience, he demonstrates, with passion, insight and impeccable logic, why India, and other formerly subject nations, can never truly be free—and certainly not in a position to assume global leadership—unless they reclaim their cultural identity.
