A Passage to India by E.M. ForsterWhen Adela Quested and her elderly companion Mrs Moore arrive in the Indian town of Chandrapore, they quickly feel trapped by its insular and prejudiced Anglo-Indian community. Determined to escape the parochial English enclave and explore the real India, they seek the guidance of the charming and mercurial Dr Aziz, a cultivated Indian Muslim. But a mysterious incident occurs while they are exploring the Marabar caves with Aziz, and the well-respected doctor soon finds himself at the centre of a scandal that rouses violent passions among both the British and their Indian subjects. A masterful portrait of a society in the grip of imperialism, A Passage to India compellingly depicts the fate of individuals caught between the great political and cultural conflicts of the modern world.
In his introduction, Pankaj Mishra outlines Forsters complex engagement with Indian society and culture. This edition reproduces the Abinger text and notes, and also includes four of Forsters essays on India, a chronology and further reading.

Forster, then 81 years old, walked onto the stage to express his pleasure with the performance. I am so used to seeing the sort of play which deals with one man and two women.

The Dead 2: India
In E. Forster published his highly acclaimed novel A Passage to India. But to think that the road from point A to point B was anything but a rocky one would be a grave mistake. The obstacles that Lean had to encounter on his way to making this adaptation were almost too many to mention. First of all, Forster cultivated an intense feeling of distrust towards the world of film. He coldly rejected many offers from filmmakers who wanted to tell his story, being afraid they would ruin his work of art by missing the whole point of the novel and turning it into a biased depiction of either the British or the Indians. Being the hardened perfectionist he always was, Lean had to quarrell with his cast, especially with Alec Guinness and Judy Davis, to get what he wanted out of them.
