The eBook encompasses the development of a political organization in Bombay, the Bombay Association during the period 1852 – 1879.  Central to the analysis is the interplay between Colonial policy and the role of the Bombay Association in grappling with several issues of political, social and economic importance. 

 

The  members of the Bombay Association outlined its main objectives: a) as to ascertain the wants of the Indians in the Presidency  of Bombay: b) to suggest measures to the British authorities for the advancement and improvement of the welfare of the country: c) to make representation to the British Parliament concerning the inquiries which were then being made into the administration of India: d) to memorialize the Government to remove the existing evils or prevent proposed measures which might be considered injurious. Membership to the Association was open to all those who could pay an amount of Rupees 25 per year and one could become a life member on payment of Rupees 300
