Sandip Roy: The Raj lingers on in Victoria & Abdul
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.
