Reflections in colonial credo in India


Author(s): Nairra Nissar Shah

Abstract: The British rule in India was based on many set ideologies and opinions that they had, over the time, created, deduced and sometimes concocted. They continuously emphasized on the ‘difference’ that set them apart from natives. To sustain the rule they came up with new, exceptional theories of governance. These were sometimes taken with a pinch of salt, sometimes forcefully shoved down the unwilling throats of Indians. This paper focuses on how the colonial rule was imposed upon natives by developing an undesirable symbiotic relationship between the ruler and the ruled, in which the former accrued benefits most of the times, at the latter’s expense. They conveniently took the glorious things from India’s past, correlated them with theirs and branded or generalized everything else as savage and inferior to them.
