India and England in Popular Culture

How does popular culture engage with the colonial history and present day relationship between England and India? Since the beginning of British expansion into South Asia, popular culture from both England and the Indian subcontinent has struggled with this clash of identities. Materials from The Moonstone and Devdas to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Nameste London have endeavored to reconcile the conflict within the two separate, but forever linked, communities.
