    It is because, while all knew that the British were responsible for the Bengal Famine, it now in the open with the British media making it a lead story. Indian origin Britons have the opportunity to research from British Archives and the skeletons have stumbled out of the cupboard.

    Hence, it brought the memories back.

    Once again, it shows how little you know of life beyond the Finnish boundaries and in your brain freeze with the cold.

    Let the above help you to get educated so that you do not post post with half witted comments.

    Olympics is important but still Olympics is not a parameter for global dominance. ;) Regarding China, the country is more like that of human Robots put to assembly lines by CCP, Olympics aspirants should be by passion, not to be put on assembly lines. :p

    It is interesting to compare: Since Indians independence from UK, brits have given a lot of development aid to India. Since Finlands independence from Russia, Finns have given a lot of development aid to Russia. ;)

    That's not aid but peanuts and then they exaggerate it. ;) As I told you most of India's poor gets benefits from government run programs like subsidized fuel, subsidized foodgrain, free healthcare, free schooling. Whatever debt they take from international organization, they repay that, Western country's peanuts contribute negligible except propagating fairy tales about their generous aid. ;)

    Have we asked? NO. Our then finance minister and current President has called it peanuts. But then one wonders why they haven't stopped it? Are they oozing out the white man's guilt like pus? Or because their lackeys their NGO's who do their bidding in our country will not manipulate data and reports suiting Britards if scraps aren't thrown to them? Yes, most of the UK aid goes directly to NGO propped up by the Britards.

    If you were intelligent you would have figured out, but unfortunately you are a Finn.

    Go to your maths teacher of your school where you studied, to help you recognise the fact that we are buying 123 (+20) Hawk 132 trainers at 18 million USD a pop. Hope she will be able to calculate and tell you how much in a single deal we are ploughing back into their economy.

    We bought barely used BAE Hawks from Switzerland for 2 Million Euros a piece. I guess we like used stuff we also bought Leo 2s for the same price.

    Despite all this, Indians will fall at the feet of a British guy/girl and abuse fellow Indians. Goes to show that Indians suffer from a slave mindset, which the British exploited successfully. Can't blame them, really.

    Your trolling and flame-baiting ability is on decline it seems. The above post of yours won't even have half the desired result.
    You should have followed Rahul for 'aatmachintan' and 'aatmamanthan' to re-invigorate your once 'legendary' flame-baiting abilities.

    Maybe what repeated electoral failure did to Rahul, repetitive temporary bans had the same effect on you. Good Luck. :wave:

    Ah, I see you are still stuck on the "aid" shit.

    For the benefit of those who haven't seen my earlier replies to you:

    1. Britard "aid" is peanuts, and accounts for such a miniscule portion of India's GDP, its not funny when Britards constantly expect Indians to be beholden to them for their pittance.
    2. Indian politicians, including the President (Pranab Mukherjee) have openly told Britain to kindly stop sending peanuts - "just stop the damn aid" was the unequivocal message sent by Pranabda to Britards when they began whining too much about aid.
    3. British politicians pleaded that the Indian government should not refuse the aid, but continue to accept it!!

    Strange, innit? Doesn't seem to make sense at all, considering the outrage among common Britards when it comes to the "aid" issue. Well, this might help clear it up:

    4. Britard "aid" is not meant for poverty alleviation - it has three purposes:
    a) Use the "aid" to gain leverage and bargaining power, especially to lobby for massive defence contracts.
    b) The "aid" is funneled through NGOs, where a great proportion goes back to Britards, in the form of administrative expenses, salaries, etc.
    c) A lot of this "aid" is given to NGOs specifically involved in proselytizing and propagation of missionary Christianity.

    And @jouni expects us to hang our tongues out and salivate at the feet of Britards for this!!! Just look at the chutzpah.

    You are the typical example of such a person, who bashes and abuses fellow Indians. The only slight difference is that you fall at the feet of Muslims, and not British.

    It is not so easy giving up development aid, it is so deep in peoples psyche to at least Christmas time to remember the less fortunate.

    In India, it is a religious duty since the religion began to give alms.

    So, who are you lecturing to?
