British rule invited Gandhi to discuss the future of India but they were still insisting on a rule under British Empire. Therefore, negotiations resulted with nothing. Gandhi expanded his goals into lower class of India. His dream of India was not about creating a industrial state. He was actually demanding a simple and traditional life style for everybody.
Britain and her crown jewel of imperialism A question toiled over for centuries by historians. What was the effect of British imperialism on india? Was it negative or positive? We delve into such a topic today, but first, how did the British get to India? While the Mughal empire was collapsing (the last seat of power before the British came) The East India Company came Hailing from the great British empire to seek out India’s potential and profit.
India had been for a long time, the jewel of the British Empire, yet the growing sense of national determination was rising in India and people were demanding independence. In 1945 India received it´s independence, serving as the catalyst to a chain of events that saw Britain loose most of it´s colonies in a short period of time. The independence movement in India inspired
If challenging the coloniser’s literary canon is very common in postcolonial writing, the question whether to use the language of one’s oppressor for the postcolonial literature is a more complicated one. The grounding debate on this question between Indian author Salman Rushdie and Kenyan scholar Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o can illuminate the post-Soviet case of Zherebtsova’s novel. Rushdie believes that postcolonial writers can and must freely work in the coloniser’s language. For him, “English is an Indian literary language” (Rushdie 370) and to use it by an Indian author is the very way to overcome the colonial past: if the “peoples who were once colonised by the language are now rapidly remaking it, domesticating it” (Rushdie 369), it stops being owned solely by the coloniser, and can be used for a dialogue with him or a fight against him. However, for wa Thiong’o, “English is not an African language”, and priority must be given to national languages (wa Thiong 'o 367).
The doctrine of Separation of Powers in India is as old as the Constitution itself, and was extensively, though, perhaps not exhaustively, discussed in the Constituent Assembly Debates. Emphasis was laid on giving Constitutional Recognition to Separation of Powers by Prof. K.T. Shah, a member of Constituent Assembly. It was to be culled out by Art. 40-A as under: “There shall be complete separation of powers as between the principal organs of the State, viz; the legislative, the executive, and the judicial.” However, this idea was opposed by Shri Hanumathaiyah, who envisioned a functional, harmonious government, instead of complete separation of powers.
The fundamental arbiters of change from the Old World to the New World were: Capitalism, Colonialism, Modernity and Nationalism. Hind Swaraj is a staunch critique of all these four concepts. In this text, he not only completely does away with modern civilization, but also critiques the individuality in civil society. He believed that India was being ground down, not by the British heel but under that of modern civilization; the end result of these means was that the people were turning away from God. I would like to draw attention to how the Gandhian theory of life
The history of the last twelve hundred years has failed to achieve the unity and this long time was an evidence of this that India was always divided into Hindu India and Muslim. Quaid-e-Azam made the British recognize the ultimate innate spiritual, economic, social and political dissimilarities Importance of Two Nation Theory in Pre-Independence time: The Two-Nation Theory served as the platform for demanding a separate state for the Muslims form British India. The Muslims wanted to preserve and protect their distinct identity and advance their interests in India. They wanted to order their lives in accordance with their ethics and philosophy of life without being overruled by an indifferent majority. Most of all they wanted to follow their religion in all aspects of life.
In this segment is Tagore used to illustrate the variability of Indian culture, where we can mainly see it in the segment “Gandhi and Tagore”- their opinion differ widely on many topics like nationalism, the role of rationality, modernity, the nature of economic or social development; and how he was perceived in America and Europe in the segment “East and West” or “God and Others”. The theme of individuality and uniqueness of cultures is widely examined in other segment “Our Culture, Their Culture”, where the name probably symbolize the relation to the book “Our Films Their Films” written by Satyajit Ray, who wanted to create something that could possible speak across cultural boundaries. The modern Indian identity and culture has been also affected by Western culture. It is showed in “Indian tradition and Western imagination” that the self-perception of Indians was shaped one way or another by Western
