Symbolism in "Rikki-tikki-tavi"
British Imperialism
What is British Imperialism? Briefly, it is when Britain became interested in India beginning in the 1600s. A British trading company called the East India Company began controlling areas of India. The area the East India Company controlled expanded over time.

The British were interested in India because of India's raw materials such as tea, indigo, coffee, cotton, and jute (a fiber).

The British held much of the political and economic power in India. British rule angered and frightened many Indians.
