    Again, you are jumping the gun without adequate knowledge of the world's colonial history.

    Indeed the imperialists and colonialists were brutal, cruel and heartless. You have any doubt? That photograph above your said post should give you an idea. Show me one British chap in Briton or British India of the time as impoverished and starving as those Indians in the picture.

    Just think how the British Empire, where it was said that the Sun never Sets in the British Empire, crumbled after that they called Jewel of the Empire, yes, India got Independence?

    The Golden Goose was no longer to feed them and their extravaganza, at the cost of the Golden Goose.

    And it is NOT the WEST THAT IS EVIL. Just the imperialists and colonialists.

    Do you still blame Brits for this? Do you still mistrust them?

    Yes,the British are to be mistrusted. As they say, once burnt twice shy. I do not hate them but I cannot trust them also. That is why I am fond of nations like France,Italy,USA and Japan. These nations have defeated the British in a number of wars.

    (P.S. I am not against English education. Instead I am a staunch supporter of it. English is after all an Indo-European language and a descendant of the German and French dialects.)

    Oh sure, we blame the British for this and many more atrocities. Have no doubt about that.

    Mistrust? No, we have moved on and Britain is now a third class nation, let alone being a power. Her self assumed importance is sustained by the oxygen supplied by the US. Without that, she is a sunk boat, not worth salvaging.

    By the bye, you have taken the mantle of being a troll with dollops of ridiculous witless comments. Quite a drawdown I must say.

    You were not a Brit, so how come you whining about it. Quite hypocrite, all Westerners abuse Stalin and Russians for Ukrainian Famine 24 hours a day but don't want to talk how Churchill starved 4 millions to death in Bengal during World War 2.

    One cannot forget history. It is not only India's problem, it is also the world's problem to atone for the injustices done to others.

    You complain about Russia, but you gloss over the injustice done by the Western powers to the colonies under their ruthless rule.

    You all are hypocrites who pretend to be 'saints' and 'world's conscience'.

    Remember
    I could think of many labels for you.

    But maybe you should tone down and ask relevant questions that you wish to be educated about.

    Offtopic, but the British have a history of poking their noses everywhere. These British could never fight European powers successfully. I think this is not appropriate for the thread.

    Yes, for some reason India flies under radar in global issues. You should rise your global profile. Where are Indian sportsmen? Indian movies? Music? Brands? You focus too much on yourself. Get the olympics for Gods sake! Is India the only Great country that has not hosted olympics? Even Finland has.

    Why are you diverting this thread? How is this related to famine created by the British?

    It would show them that they did not manage to get you down. Ok, what is the meaning of this thread? To fuel hatred?

    El Nino is often cited by as one of the primary reasons of famines. However El Nino and La Nina did not disappear after India got Independence. Strangely India did not suffer any serious drought or famine in the last 6 decades.

    http://www.who.int/globalchange/publications/en/elnino.pdf

    It seems that the British are masters at diverting the real cause of famines, which happened from their mismanagement and cruelty, to other trivial causes. To do this they use environmental experts and other such scientists who put all the blame on El Nino etc.

    No. Try to get a better grasp of English.
    The meaning of this thread is to show the cruelty of the British and how their tall claims of being "gentleman" rulers are all fake. The British used to see us as their burden while in reality they were our burden.

    Our movies, music and food already have a global appeal. Olympics, never mind. And British taught us English, one of the greatest blunder they did for themselves. I usually see lots of Brits whining how Indians are stealing their jobs due to their English proficiency and low labor cost. There are 1.2 billion of us and with our English proficiency and would quite easily trample over their dominance very easily, just wait for the right time. ;) ;) ;)
