Postcolonial India

In class on Thursday we were discussing postcolonialism with respect to Rohinton Mistry’s “Squatter.” Coincidentally came across this article calling for a museum to remind and educate Indians and tourist alike about the realities of colonial rule:

Shashi Tharoor. “The need for a museum on British colonisation of India: The decolonisation of the mind is among the greatest challenges today’s Indians have to face.” Al Jazeera (12 March 2017).
