    He is just going there to get a 'kick' and enjoy inwardly the 'glories' of the Raj days!

    And anyway, I think this latest fad of wanting apologies for historical atrocities is quite useless, since it is mere words and one cannot change the barbarism that was perpetuated.

    I would rather have these incidents hang on the conscience of the descendants of those who perpetuated these barbarisms.

    The number of atrocities british have committed in india, cameroon might need to have a separate month long visit where he needs to go around the country and express regret.

    But seriously if he is thinking that by expressing regret for jallianwala-bagh to a sikh PM, he may be able to get some deals signed upon then this act of regret will not help him. He may regret about this "regret" business.

    sir, the time British won over Marathas in 1818, Indian economy was around 4 times bigger than British that time. they had many Indian traitors, many tactics they used and then they got 'everything' in India, its wealth and also an Indian Army which won rest of the war for them. we do know that Indian Army was back boon of British's efforts in WW1, WW2. and from here, you would just assume a man of street who suddenly became Mayer of that same city, will their coming generation forget that pride they had in past? :nono:. India will always have to have 'pig talks' with those British who always have a reason to engage India someway, somehow :tsk: :facepalm:

    => List of regions by past GDP (PPP) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    even if we have a close look on the data's then we find that even by 1820, GDP of India was around $111,417mil, as compare to total GDP of Western Europe at $159,851mil as below. it may also because of the fact that Marathas lost heavy wealth during the 15 years of war with British till 1818 :meeting:

    (this GDP estimate is based on the prices at 1820. here the "Total Western Europe" include the current 17 Eurozone nations, +Britain+Norway+Swedan etc)

    Why should he go there in the fear place? We don't need their regrets or apologies. That Infians are slowly taking over Britain and the Brits are making a beeline to do business in India is an indication of who won in the end.

    For how many incidents will you demand an apology? How will the apology even matter?

    There is a huge Sikh population in GB.

    It is all a political skulduggery!

    Next he will regret the Bengal Famine once the Bengalis to include Bangladeshis get smart!

    Indians know them to well to be impressed by crocodile tears.

    Gunga Din was after all a better man!

    Right, but one must not let anything go just like that. The list can be made any day.

    My question is very specific as media is trying it make it regrets vs Apology. If India hasn't asked for then this whole media masturbation is just unnecessary. Any gesture for UK PM should be appericiated.

    Question still remains. Why the hell is he going to Jallianwala Bagh in the first place?

    Chanakya says respect, money and apology should be accepted without apprehension.

    I think we Indians have either become over formal or let it go types ('Janey do') or are too busy accumulating things as tomorrow is doomsday that we have lost the art of taking mileage even from crocodile tears.

    Business.

    Pleasing Indians, changing their image as they might have been lurking DFI, :p

    All good for business, it adds up.

    Something that opens up old wounds is certainly not business.

    Will he acknowledge that over 3000 were massacred that day and not 300 as the Brits put it? Will he even call it a massacre?

    Or may be having closure; his advisors might have suggested so.
