Set in Colonial India, A Passage to India is a story of trust and prejudice. Centered around a false sexual assault accusation, the novel explores what it means to be a good person. It also questions the very nature of imperialism considering the basis of it is the inherent superiority of British people. The novel is grim, but only because it is a reflection of the colonial horrors seen by people still living today. A Passage to India is a book people should read not just because of the story, but also to understand some of the causes to problems plaguing India to this day.
