Sandip Roy: The Raj lingers on in Victoria & Abdul

Nov 29, 2017

Once the white man came to India to lift the natives out of their heathen darkness 

(and take their jute, iron and Kohinoor diamond). But in the film "Victoria & Abdul" the brown man goes to London to lift the spirits of the English queen, like a delicious human mango.

This is still colonialism just a more feel-good garden party version tempered with a dash of political correctness.
