Bangladesh appears to have found its own variant of democratic authoritarianism that has been increasingly witnessed in South Asia and beyond. Sri Lanka's post-colonial state structure was heavily centralized and the centre came to be dominated by the Sinhalese majority.

The attributes that can be ascribed to the bureaucracy of the British, namely centralization, rigidity, elitism, secrecy were very much a part of the post-colonial states in South Asia (ibid).

Thus, when thinking about South Asia, the Indian state has often sought the same role as a regional hegemon as the one enjoyed by the empire in its heyday. One could argue that the totally avoidable war with China in was a product of remnants of this misguided belief.

by TARIQ AMIN KHAN. The process of modern state building of post colonial states has made South Asia a region crowded with refugees and the displaced with the fourth largest concentration of refugees in the world.

In his extraordinarily influential book Orientalism, Edward Said argued that Western knowledge about the Orient in the Post-Enlightenment period has been "a systematic discourse by which Europe was able to manage—even produce—the Orient politically, sociologically, militarily, ideologically, scientifically, and imaginatively."
