#RelicsOfTheRaj - Fort’s Colonial Statues by Vinayak Talwar

Today, in a renewed anger against colonialism and slavery, the world is seeing the toppling of colonial-era statues in Europe and USA. Mumbai witnessed a similar anger 55 years ago when many colonial-era statues were vandalized to erase independent India’s colonial past. Some statues were hidden away and some even went missing, their place being taken by newer statues. But the clues of a past not too long back still linger around. In our Online Talk #RelicsOfTheRaj, history enthusiast Vinayak Talwar, a member of Team Khaki, takes us on a walk around the Fort area to look back at the colonial statues that stood in the city centre and tells us their locations, who they memorialised, what befell them and other stories around them.

About the speaker:
Vinayak Talwar is a Dilliwalla who gets a kick out of showing Mumbaikars their own city. Living and working in Mumbai since the last 5 years, the city has enchanted him into exploring its nooks and crannies whenever he gets the chance. When he is not tramping down the streets of Fort and other Mumbai localities, Vinayak works as an HR professional with an Indian conglomerate.
