Chapter Summary

As the Second World War brought an unprecedented destruction in its trail and dislocation in every sphere of life, it united at the same time the destinies of the peoples of the world in many ways and brought them closer than ever before. Thus, from the chaos and savagery of the war emerged a growing desire for coexistence, harmony and common good. Initially, this began with the Allied efforts for security but soon led to a range of activities of mutual co-operation at various levels, culminating in the formation, in 1945, of the United Nations Organisation (UNO). These developments had profound impact on Britain and her vast Empire including India. Here, the war and the new forces of change it released combined with the local factors to compel the colonial authorities to respond sympathetically to the national aspirations and to use science for material reconstruction of the country.
