Abstract

The National Archives of India is the largest repository of historical documents in the country. In the 125th year of its establishment, this article traces the evolution of the archives, from an organisation that articulated the colonial administration's power - subtly regulating and colonising not only the writing of history but also the minds of the colonised - to a postcolonial institution of preservation after independence.
