Seeking to experience a different culture, Adela and Mrs. Moore travel to British-controlled India. However, the duo feels that their experience is cheapened by the country's British influence. Traveling to Chandrapore, Adela and Mrs. Moore befriend Dr. Aziz, who takes the women to the Marabar caves. However, a social breach between Dr. Aziz and his English friends in the cave's darkness puts the entire country on edge.
Eager to know the "real" India, a group of English tourists develops a friendship with the cultivated Dr. Aziz. The veneer of trust and mutual affection is shattered during a trip to the Marabar caves, when one of the women accuses Dr. Aziz of assault. Arguably Forster's greatest novel, "A Passage to India paints a troubling portrait of colonialism at its worst and, in the breach between Aziz and his English "friends," foreshadows the end of British rule in India.
