Belgium Embassy hosted a Red Carpet Book Launch of Shashi Tharoor’s New Book – “The Era of Darkness – The British Empire in India”. `An Era of Darkness’ ranges through an impressive body of works and presents itself as an informed polemic on the ravages of colonial rule.
Shashi Tharoor is an Indian politician and a former UN diplomat whose speech “Britain Does Owe Reparations” was spread viral by the Indian diaspora. He has since written a book “An Era of Darkness” on British India. He has recently pointed out that there’s no museum dedicated to colonization in India or Britain: The need for a museum on British colonisation of India.
Mr. Tharoor in his new book, `An Era of Darkness’ expands his theme of the evil, heartless, greedy and racist British mercilessly exploiting India, impoverishing its people, stealing its riches, destroying its social fabric and leaving it with a ruined economy, dysfunctional democracy and confused modernity, with even the so-called gains of colonialism like the English language and the railway network being only very mixed blessings.
Many delegates, dignitaries , colleagues and press people gathered in Embassy of Belgium to attend the session with Dr.Shashi Tharoor, Suhel Seth and Shekhar Gupta on Wednesday August 02, between 6 pm and 8.30 pm.
The Book Launch and Session was followed by Book signing by Mr. Tharoor and meeting with the selected guests and award felicitation ceremony of all the DBL Crew Members , who made this event a grand success and Interaction with his book lovers.
