This text was posted on the LeftWord Blog on 11 August 2017, and it traces the encounters of empire as experienced by three Indian individuals who conducted a "world tour" on bike between 1923-27. It also touches on the question of the continual mining of the Comintern Archive in Moscow, either by visiting the archive or consulting the online digital archive, furthers our understanding of (as in my case) anti-colonial and anti-imperialist movements and experiences in the interwar period.
