‘The Legacy of the Hastings Circle: Heritage or Rupture ?’

Abstract : This paper discusses the long-term legacy of Warren Hastings, the first Governor-General of British India. After discussing the achievements of the Hastings circle, which established India's claim to her ancient cultural heritage in European eyes, the paper analyses the darker side of their legacy, in an attempt to understand how India was caught in a cultural time warp, or 'rupture', because of the colonial constructs built at the time.
