    For excellent material on cultural continuity and change from our own country, one has to examine 18th and 19th century Bengal, from where arose both those who initially began to “reform” our culture, and those who produced our “national spirit” (beginning the transformation of our disparate peoples into a “nation”).

      Hmm..Thanks for this. I have read about this in bits and pieces..anything you could recommend?

      • Prabhu Guptara Says:

        Well, if you want something relatively extensive, you might want to tackle Babu K. Verghese’s book, Let There Be India!

        For a more narrow discussion, try Shodhganga’s book, Nationalism in Pre-independence indian poetry in English.

        For the briefest possible discussion of the topic, I will be happy to send you my article “The Impact of Europe on the Development of Indian Literature” (originally published in the Review of National Literatures, New York, Special Issue on India, 1979)
