This chapter examines conflict and commonality in the experiences of three individuals - M.K. Gandhi, Rudyard Kipling, and Swami Vivekananda - who arrived in London, from India, in the years 1888-1895. Each man faced the dilemma of trying to negotiate a cosmopolitan identity while retaining native 'authenticity'.
