Sankrant Sanu brushes out one of the most uncomfortable questions from under the carpet – are we Indians truly independent?

Based on laws and customs alien to the rich and diverse Indian ethos and burdened with the White Man’s civilizing mission geared towards ‘fixing the natives’, India’s Colonial State is infused with the ‘colonial gaze’ that has robbed Indians of ‘accessing their own experience’, to borrow S. N. Balagangadhara’s phrase. So well internalized is this ‘gaze’, that even after seven decades of Independence, Indians still employ it to look at themselves, their identity, their culture, their society and their social problems.
