Tea with Nehru

Today the Republic of India is a sign of Asia's emergence as the site of global economic and political power as one of the four so-called BRIC nations. But half a century ago, India was a sign of the then international anti-colonial struggle. Its leaders showed the way for the Third World both as a model of resistance to colonialism as well as a model in structuring a post-colonial order that would deliver on the promises of the nationalist movement.
In the early 50s students of University Malaya in Singapore embarked on a 6-week trip to India, which included, tea with Prime Minister Nehru.Through the personal accounts John Doraisamy and Mavis Puthucheary we re-visit the meaning of India, the cultural dynamics of travelling and explore the continued global migration of ideas that we in Malaysia share in.
