ABSTRACT
From the year that saw the publication of Ram Mohan Roy’s Sati to the present day, it is nearly a stretch of 200 years. The effective presence of the British in India that made Indian writing in English possible was about half a century (Plassey was fought in 1757), when enterprising Indians started writing in English. One can perceive a rhythm-or a pattern-in the history of all those territories that have affected the difficult passage from colonial subjection to political independence, covering a long period. First came the shock, the trauma of conquest, a stage of demoralization and mute acceptance of the alien rule. Then came the period of slow awakening, the sense of hurt and shame and resentment, and also the desire to imitate the rulers and adopt their language their manners and even their religion.
