Chapter Summary

When the World War came to an end in 1945 after the dropping of the atom bomb on Japan by America, the world scenario changed overnight. The war which had been fought almost all over the world was decided in Japan in Asia. The Indian subcontinent was in the last leg of its freedom struggle and many adjoining regions were undergoing similar movements; but it was the farthest Japan that posed the greatest danger for the Western Allies. One of the most momentous consequences of the war and the colonial policy at the time was the consolidation of modern science and Western technology in the Indian subcontinent, after they had demonstrated their efficacy and prowess during the war and won victory for the Allies.
