Must read classic

An exceptional early 20th century classic. Forster points out the prejudice and racial tension of British colonial India. The reader may find early on some difficulty with some of the Indian terms.A little research will make the rest of book easier to read.
Forster's novel was influential for support of India's independence from Britain,which finally happened in 1947.Now I want to see the Academy Award winning movie.
