Abstract

This book-chapter examines the nationalist politics of and British counter-terrorist measures taken against India House - a notorious Indian student hostel managed by Shyamji Krishnavarma and Vinayak Damodar Savarkar in the London suburb of Highate between 1905 and 1910. My analysis reviews the politics of the Indian House group and explores the policy-recommendations of the Lee Warner committee, founded to counteract the increasing political radicalism of Indian students in Britain. The chapter concludes with a short analysis of Sarath Kumar Ghosh's contemporary novel 'The Prince of Destiny'.
