William Dalrymple on how a private company came to rule India

When the East India Company (EIC) arrived in India more than 400 years ago, India produced one-third of the world’s GDP and Britain was a small island responsible for about three percent. EIC was a private company which eventually came to rule almost all of India. In this episode, Sandip talks to writer and historian William Dalrymple about its rise, why people mistake it for the Raj, why we know so little about it and his latest book, The Anarchy: The East India Company, Corporate Violence, And The Pillage of Empire.
