Cornelia Sorabji's political thinking had an important bearing on her life and work. The most distinguishing aspect of her political self was her implicit faith in the British Empire. In defending the traditional order in India, Cornelia was influenced by another strand in the British political thinking of the mid-Victorian era, which came to represent the conservative face of liberalism. The critic of Indian nationalist politics is explored. In addition, it explains the propagandist of the Empire and Hindu orthodoxy. Generally speaking, she remained an isolated figure in India's contemporary political scenario.
