Forster's meaning behind "passage" is based on his intent to not only provide his reader with India's history, but to grant him/her with a better understanding of truth and the world we live in. Forster explores the meaning through his text in terms of racial tension, political unrest, and differences in religion. He attempts to connect the link (passage) between countries, cultures, and the very different traditions of the East and West.
