First published in 1931, Robert Byronas Essay on India evaluates the state of colonial rule in India and analyses the contemporary problems facing the country. Based upon Byronas travelling experiences within India in 1929 as a correspondent for the Daily Express, the work explores political factors more fully than in Byron's earlier writings, evaluating the successes and failures of British colonialism in the region.I saw myself for the first time as the white man grasping the earth, focus of the eartha#39;s attention. ... It made me realize that the thing we are up against existed in myself. ... The flight to India had been the outstanding experience of my short life.
