‘An Era of Darkness’ from the bestselling author Shashi Tharoor will aid to correct many misconceptions about one of the most debated periods of Indian history.
Shashi Tharoor reveals with clarity and an essence of sarcasm and wit how disastrous British rule was for India. The varied ways in which mother India was destroyed looted and exploited by British rule is chronicled in this text which ranges from taking away the resources of the nation to destroying many industries like steel textile and shipping to the negative transformation of agriculture.
The text reminds the reader about the few unarguable benefits like the English language, tea, and cricket were never actually intended for the benefit of the colonized but introduced to serve the interests of the colonizers.
The bestseller has been translated to Malayalam by Lincy K Thankkapan and published by Dc Books under the title IRULADANJA KALAM – BRITISH SAMRAJYAM INDIAYOUDU CHEYTHATHU.
