    This chapter discusses the metaphorical use of technology and technological obsolescence in colonial Indian fiction from the late nineteenth century. Four authors are examined - Jules Verne, Rudyard Kipling, Flora Annie Steel, and Edmund Candler - with an additional brief discussion of the gramophone and its role in Tagore's Ghare Baire (The Home and the World).
