about

The opening title of Paul Scott’s masterpiece, The Raj Quartet.

India 1942: WWII has shown that England is not invincible, and the self-rule lobby in India is growing. Against this background, Daphne Manners, a young English girl, is brutally raped in the Bibighat Gardens. The racism, brutality and hatred heaped upon her young Indian lover reveal the desperate state of Anglo-Indian relations. The rift that will eventually prise India — the jewel in the Imperial Crown — from colonial rule is beginning to gape wide.
