Mr Cameron’s forecast, therefore, that the Conservatives will produce the first British Prime Minister of Indian extraction appears to be in the mix. It is now no longer a distant possibility. Also, it would be a considerable change for the rank and file of the right-wing Conservative party—which until 15 years ago was quite white dominated—to rally around a non-white as party leader and Prime Minister.

If a British Indian can become Prime Minister of Britain, then the wheels of destiny of the British Empire that ruled India for two centuries would have turned a full circle. You get to read about this fascinating possibility and much more in this edition of the India Empire Magazine. Have a great year ahead!
