Chapter Summary

The interpretive project of the Annals drew the fundamental connections between the Rājpūts and the British that justified Tod’s official actions. Rajasthan and the Rājpūts have served a visible and important role in the history of India and the formation of the Indian republic. This is the conclusory chapter of the book, which demonstrates the continuing import of the image of the Rājpūt, and the inseparable relationship between this image and the European intellectual and Orientalist milieu in which it arose, and was preserved over time. The European intellectual world has invaded Indian historical discourse that certainly “Rājasthānī,” and to a great degree “Indian” discourse in general, must for now, and the foreseeable future, be vigilantly viewed for the European Imperial foundations at their base.

Keywords: Annals; European Imperial foundation; Rājpūts
