    Burmese Days tells the story of the Englishman Flory, a merchant posted in Burma whose only friend is Dr. Veraswami, an Indian. Flory thinks of himself as liberal and hates the British traditions of imperialismand racism, but at the same time is too weak to stand up for his beliefs or his friend. Throughout his failed romance with Elizabeth Lackersteen and the racial riots that later occur, Flory discovers how to truly reject the old institutions and attempt to forge a real relationship between East and West.
