What’s the number of colonial admirers in India? The question is quite obvious since there is no dearth to colonial hangovers among a sizeable section of Indians yet. But there is an urgent need to put an end to their mystified admiration. And to them “The White Sahibs in India” written by Reginald Reynolds back in 1937 should be made mandatory. Reynolds happened to be an erudite, sympathetic Englishman who similar to the Indians then was also equally strident against brutality of the British Raj.
The book, in brief, brings forth an extremely disturbing story of the lousy, brutal British Raj and that’s quite enough to call outlandish admiration to British hegemony as well as its taste and culture a halt. The book has been republished by Society for Integrated Development of Himalayas (SIDH), Mussoorie all you have to do is to read it with rapt attention.
