Rudyard Kipling’s The Man Who Would Be King was written in 1888 and is an allegory of the British Imperialism in India during the 1800’s. Kipling lived during this time and there are parallels between his story and elements British imperialism in India such as conquering with advanced technology, making alliances with previous rulers, and exploiting the land for resources. Granted that the British didn’t leave India until the 1950’s, Kipling didn’t see the movement end, yet he had an opinion that he expressed in his work. Kipling’s opinion of British imperialism, that is inefficient and immoral, is seen in his novella through satire; for example, he portrays the British as two foolish men who face misfortune after they form their kingdom, which they are only able to rule after the people see them as gods.

Swadeshi meant self-sufficiency, an attitude which meant that the Indians decided to discard British and look at indigenous sources.

The Lahore station was built as a Medieval European Castle with its crenulated towers, giant iron doors and loopholes. The memories of the Indian mutiny or the first War of Independence of 1857-58 were fresh in Brunton’s mind and it influenced the design of the station.
