The Legacy of India

G.T. Garratt (Editor)
Synopsis The Legacy of India provides insights into the vast diversity of India. It contains brilliant essays by both foreign and Indian thinkers like H G Rawlinson, Dr S Radha Krishnan and Minoo Masani on Indian language and literature, art, architecture and archaeology, music, science and philosophy and religion. It also contains an illuminating essay on Indo-British civilization. The contribution made to the legacy of India by the British people may prove to be incalculable as Zetland observes in his Introduction to the volume. Even today the influence of the English language is apparent, while the effect of English political tradition as a force moulding the mind of modern India has been profound. A striking characteristic of the legacy of India is its infinite variety. There are three Indias of which Cardington, one of the contributions to the volume, writes the India of the great cities standing out in contrast with the India of the hill and forest peoples, and in between these two the India of the villages serving as a link between life in its complex and life in its primitive forms. The thought characteristic of these three Indias has found expression both in literature and art.
