Description

The Second World War represents a particularly necessary moment within the development of the postcolonial Indian state’s welfare policies. Wartime measures regarding state-provisioning of food far outlived the war, and changed into permanent fixtures of the post-war and post-colonial structure of governance in India. Long after the war had finished and whilst far as as of late, the post-colonial Indian adopted food austerity measures as a part of its campaign to ‘remake’ Indian diets, for example asking Indian citizens to just accept substitute foods as opposed to rice and wheat to ease the pressure on these staple grains. This book charts the germination of these policies throughout the conflict.
