26. The Colonial Enterprise
Shashi Tharoor in conversation with Anita Anand
As India celebrates 70 years of its independence from colonial rule, this session debates colonialism’s claims of benefit and development despite evidence of its fundamental nature. Shashi Tharoor, author of “An Era of Darkness”, discusses this period, and the colonial project in its larger scope and impact, as well as the lingering effects of colonization that persist even today.
