Conveniently marked off by the beginning of the First World War and the end of the Khilafat movement in India (1920–1924), the decade 1914–1924 witnessed the “geographisation” of political discourse in South Asia. The Great War and its aftermath generated discourses of spatiality, landscapes, and travel simultaneously, in different locales and by different sets of people in South Asia. Soldiers deployed, journalists travelled to war zones, and administrators scrambled to organise units and logistics as the war dragged on.
