Event Details 
British Empire in India
In the year 1600, some British merchants sailed to Asia in search of fortune in trade and built “factories” in India’s coastal towns. In the course of time, it expanded into an empire of Britain. Second World War bankrupted Britain and they ceded power in 1947 to two political entities, India and Pakistan. The lectures will include the history of the conquest, the functioning of the empire and the resulting political, social, economic, and cultural changes, as well as the birth of a modern democracy in India. Venkat Lakshminarayanan has led many OLLI study groups on Indian history, culture and religions.
