When India became independent in 1947, the Church of South India (CSI) was formed as a united church of Anglicans, Baptists, Basel Mission, Lutherans and Presbyterians. The united Church of South India accepted an order of uniformity in worship and practice which was at odds with some aspects of Anglican tradition. Traditional Anglicans in the CSI did not accept this and there was a provision for separation within a period of 30 years from the CSI. Therefore, in 1964, some Anglicans decided to withdraw from the CSI and re-established the Anglican Church of India on 24 August 1964. In Hinduism, '''Khatushyamji''' is a name and manifestation of '''Barbarika''', son of Ghatotkacha. This manifestation is especially popular in the Indian state of Rajasthan.

The People's Republic of China detonated its first device using a Teller-Ulam design June 1967 ("Test No. 6"), a mere 32 months after detonating its first fission weapon (the shortest fission-to-fusion development yet known), with a yield of 3.3 Mt. Little is known about the Chinese thermonuclear program, however. Very little is known about the French development of the Teller-Ulam design beyond the fact that they detonated a 2.6 Mt device in the "Canopus (Canopus (nuclear test))" test in August 1968. In 1998, India claimed to detonate a "hydrogen bomb" in its Operation Shakti tests ("Shakti I (Operation Shakti#Shakti I)", specifically), though seismographic readings have led many non-Indian experts to conclude that this is unlikely, or at least it was unlikely to have been a success as claimed, because of its low yield (claimed to be around 45 kt, though outside experts estimate it at around 30 kt, both extremely low for a successful thermonuclear detonation). "What Are the Real Yields of India's Test?", ''Nuclear Weapon Archive'', November 2001 However even low-yield tests can have a bearing on thermonuclear capability, as they can provide information on the behavior of ''primaries'' without the full ignition of ''secondaries''. "India's Nuclear Weapons Program: Operation Shakti, 1998, ''Nuclear Weapon Archive'', March 2001 The story of ''The Raj Quartet'' begins in 1942. World War II is at its zenith, and in South East Asia, the Allied forces have suffered great losses. Burma has fallen, and the Japanese invasion of the Indian subcontinent from the east appears imminent. The year 1942 is also marked by Indian nationalist leader Mahatma Gandhi’s call for the Quit India movement (Quit India) to the British rulers of India. ''The Raj Quartet'' is set in this tumultuous background for the British soldiers and civilians stationed in India who have a duty to manage this part of the British Empire, known as the "jewel in the crown" of the British Monarch. One recurrent theme is the moral certainty of the older generation as contrasted with the anomie of the younger For instance, in ''Day of the Scorpion'', Sarah Layton envies the "self-assurance" of her older aunt. See ''Day of the Scorpion'', Book Two Part Two ch. IV . Another is the shocking racism to which this leads For example, in ''Day of the Scorpion'', Hari Kumar describes how the British were shocked and embarrassed at the sight of an Englishwoman treating an Indian as a human being rather than as an inferior being. See ''Day of the Scorpion'' Book Two Part One Ch. I . To justify the racism and combat this danger of anomie and disintegration, the British characters let themselves be "trapped by codes and principles, which were in part to keep their own fears and doubts at bay." review of ''Raj Quartet'' in The Spectator Most of the major characters suffer difficulties, and some die, either because they try to follow codes which have become outmoded (Ahmed Kasim, Merrick, Teddie Bingham) or because they reject the codes and become outsiders (Kumar, Lady and Daphne Manners, Sarah Layton). P. Morey, ''Fictions of India: Narrative and Power'', p.153 Some critcs have compared ''The Raj Quartet'' to the epic novels of Proust and Tolstoy Steinberg, ''Twentieth Century Epic Novels'', p.125 . Though some critics have thought the ''Quartet'' to be a straightforward example of nineteenth-century style realism, others have argued that its non-linear narrative style and occasional "outburst of dreams, hallucinations and spiritual revelations" give it an added dimension Morey, ''Fictions of India'', p.158 . The lead characters in the first novel, which sets the stage for the subsequent ones, are Daphne Manners, a young English (England)woman who has recently arrived in India, and her British (United Kingdom)-educated Indian lover, Hari Kumar.

Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four religions—Hinduism (Hinduism in India), Buddhism (History of Buddhism in India), Jainism (Jainism in India), and Sikhism (Sikhism in India)—originated here, whereas Judaism, Zoroastrianism (Parsi), Christianity (Christianity in India), and Islam (Islam in India) arrived in the 1st millennium CE (Common Era) and also helped shape the region's diverse culture (Culture of India). Gradually annexed by and brought under the administration of the British East India Company (Company rule in India) from the early 18th century and administered directly by the United Kingdom (British Raj) after Indian Rebellion of 1857, India became an independent nation in 1947 after a struggle for independence (Indian independence movement) that was marked by non-violent resistance led by Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi).
