Explain the significance of the title of the novel 'A Passage to India'?

"A Passage to India" suggests that there is more than one `passage' - there is more than one viewpoint to see India from, and there is more than one way to interpret the muddle. Forster's novel is merely one way to do so. The passage, much like the passage of time in To The Lighthouse, shows how the world and nature can cause people to change.
