Abstract

The popular myth of oppositions-India and England, finds the proper admixture in Nirad C Chaudhuri’s travelogue A Passage to England through the contrastive sense. Since he completes an eight-week-journey outside India, five weeks in England, two weeks in Paris and one in Rome, he presents what he sees in western world along with the reality of his own country as an Indian in this travelogue. Though in every chapter of this book he upholds very contrastive views of India and England giving a superiority of anyone, he beautifully synthesizes this contrast showing true reality. So, this paper aims at showing how he synthesizes the binary opposition applying Derrida’s view on binary opposition and Hegel’s dialectic process.
