A Passage to India is significant in that it asks the very important question - can the English and Indian races be friends- the author's conclusion in what we read implies that it isn't possible at this time. Forster shows us the road blocks which negatively impact inter-racial friendships through the experiences of Fielding and Aziz.

Forster focuses the question of friendship on a personal, indiviual levels rather than in terms of politics, something that is certainly derived from his own liberal world-view.
