I've faced them many times on internet; @ social media, public forums & even once been there, tracking their reasonless racism for making superiority complexes (for nothing), even towards ethnically close European people, (And if someone tells them that the people they call "immigrants" are responsible literally for their jobs, along with down their imports), now, in a new form called Brexit.

I never wanted to generalize them but wherever I have met or contacted them, all are equally bigoted people,
A vassal state of USA who can't even sustain it's strategic economy, still loves to be called a great power from which it's a power, image sums up a lot, rest is you could see all around the world,

Monarchy in 21st century, and 60 millions mindlessly defending it (a similar way when Pakistanis defending military coups & army over their government if you guys observe).
As the attention of world avoids a small nation which had been luckily a benevolent power in world, British media & people start some other way to de mean or to take credit of others even by propagating false news shamessly, at least to make their citizens feel good and these days busy with India propagating the rumour of "aid" to the East, in India & China. Specially India!

Bullying on weaker countries like Argentina themselves, specially civilians, even then, there's no shortage of British keyboard angels urging Indians to have peace with Pakistan (and themselves giving refuge to separatists).



This brainwashing experiment results the similar level of ignorance as that of our other friends.
Ignorantometer readin for UK = PK
Pakistan V2 is in making, for idiocy specially.

The so called "foreign aid" (about just £300 millions) illegally funded to so called Human Rights group like Amnesty International. In fact, India's own aid budget dwarfs theirs.
And look, what they are taught in schools! :shock:
They are "funding" India.



UK spent more than India on Indian Edu (or they even spent it) and where gone India's $570 billions expenditure then? India is a donor of aid idiots!

No

(Indian Defence Budget = 3-4 times of North Korean economy)



I think we are going to have better clowns than Pakistanis in a couple of years.:biggrin2:
Here's a masterpiece article to refkect their intellectual level.
India - How arrogant can a country's population get?
I've spent quite a long length of my time in India observing racial sentiments, and after a good few years and reading up on open articles, I've now got a clearer idea in my head that India is more of a country which is turning quite arrogant as the eyes of the world turn to its incredibly fast rising economics and their lovely poster-boy Modi waves his willy in front of the people to massive applause from the mass-scale ignorants whom live with their heads buried in the ground.

Anything an excuse for a show of arrogance and India is there with its puppet-shows especially with regards to their so-called “Line of control” i.e separating their territories from India, Pak and China, over the last few months their have been numerous incidents of India

Three killed, six injured by Indian fire along Line of Control - Pakistan - DAWN.COM

Fire exchanged across India-Pakistan border in Kashmir

Pak Admits 7 Soldiers Killed In Indian Fire At Line Of Control (LoC) , Warns Of Escalation

Perhaps I may be wrong but Pakistan’s genpop really don’t give a toss about the territorial disputes anymore and simply want to live out their days in peace.

A lot of observations on some of their defence-related forums made it apparent that a lot of the Indian’s on there were more-favoured towards a massive show of force against Pakistan with regards to updating a lot of their ancient and cold-war era weaponry.

For a trolling, daily mail article, written by someone like @OrangeFlorian,
Close ties with Britain give India better access to the rest of Europe.
Close ties with India gave Europe better access to India's mineral resources. Close ties with India also gave Britain the knowledge of rocket artillery.
Just as Empire opened the doors of modernity to India, a good relationship between Britain and India will be a mark of how prominent both countries are in the modern world.
Britain isn't gaining prominence in the modern world.
It is a subject that particularly interests me as, although I was born and raised in Britain, my parents migrated here from India.
This is not an autobiography, but carry on.
All that is best about India - its tolerance, freedom and engagement with the world - has flourished due to the structures and ideas it inherited from British rule.
Yes, the British were so tolerant that they would have a sign board that read "Dogs and Indians not allowed." Read more here. As a matter of fact, they even tolerated, nay, ordered opening fire on a group of unarmed civilians. Read more here.
Despite the often callous profiteering of Empire, the modern Indian state simply would not exist without it.
Perhaps, assuming another Chadragupta Maurya would not have ever been born.
Like the U.S., India is a nation fostered into being by Britain, and one which derives its romantic national identity from its struggle for independence.
Neither US, nor India were fostered into being by Britain. The American revolutionaries fought against the government and won. The Indian revolutionaries fought against the government and lost, twice.
And just as Americans don't publicly admit that George Washington was an abysmal general who lost almost every battle, Indians don't explicitly recognise Britain's contribution to their country's present success.
George Washington may have been an abysmalgeneral, but when he dragged his artillery pieces and fellow soldiers across the mountains, laid a siege of Boston, and threatened to bomb the hell out of them if they did not surrender, Boston, and its British loyalists were in the figurative abyss, while Washington, and his men, were on the hills. Read more here. Say what you want, he won the US independence. Moreover, he was a humble man, and quite the opposite of Churchill, an arrogant prick, who is better defined as a mediocre participant in the Boer War, but overhyped, for whatsoever reason.
But these bleak facts should not obscure the fact that British rule in India was a joint effort, impossible without the widespread co- operation of Indians themselves.
Vassals.
The Afghan mountain range of the Hindu Khush (which translates as the 'Hindu Slaughter') is named after the huge numbers who died there while being marched to the markets of Arabia and Central Asia.
Utter nonsense. "Hindu Kush" is a modification of the Greek term "Indicus Caucasus," which means the Indian Caucasian Mountains, because, the Greeks thought the Caucasian Mountains extended up to India. Keep smoking that cool green stuff that grows at the foothills of the "Hindu Kush."
In 1846, the British commissioner, John Lawrence, told the local elite that Punjabis could no longer burn their widows, commit female infanticide, nor bury their lepers alive.
Don't know what the Punjabis were doing or were stopped from doing, but I know for a fact the British deliberately overlooked the practice of Sati by the Bengal Brahminical gentry, and even refused to cooperate with Ram Mohan Roy. Finally, he had to write directly to the Queen and the Empress.
In addition to combating these barbaric practices, the British also outlawed slavery in 1843 at a time when an estimated 10 million Indians were slaves - up to 15 per cent of the population in some regions.
And then they took indentured Indian labourers to Africa to build railways in lion infested jungles. Cool story bro.
This gratitude expressed itself in 1939 when, at the height of the independence movement led by Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi, two million Indians nonetheless enlisted in the fight against fascism - the largest volunteer army in history.
Two million volunteers had little to do with gratitude, but you, dear author, would have my gratitude, if you start reading a bit more than writing.

I think u got it wrong sire , before Sikandar , it's known as Parijat mountain , "hindukush" exist as western border of india for thousands of years , being nameless for all she done for India is pretty odd .
It's either "road to Hindu (india) ", or "slaughter of Hindu" , came from turkic or arabic invaders .

aid ?

in there 200 year of colonial rule they grabbed knowledge from india and looted economically

churchill caused faminine in bengal and cut food supply resulting in deaths of million of indians and parallely created opium culture in china through india and made them helpless

http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/soutikbiswas/2010/10/how_churchill_starved_india.html


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...-hundreds-of-millions-of-pounds-in-aid-to-ch/

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/wor...ndia-tells-Britain-We-dont-want-your-aid.html

an old article now india has taken over british economy and become a bigger economy this year as well

Britain is the only country which has been told by india and china to stop these aids and they want to persue it for legacy

Pranab Mukherjee and other Indian ministers tried to terminate Britain’s aid to their booming country last year - but relented after the British begged them to keep taking the money, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal.

The disclosure will fuel the rising controversy over Britain’s aid to India.

The country is the world’s top recipient of British bilateral aid, even though its economy has been growing at up to 10 per cent a year and is projected to become bigger than Britain’s within a decade.

Last week India rejected the British-built Typhoon jet as preferred candidate for a £6.3 billion warplane deal, despite the Development Secretary, Andrew Mitchell, saying that Britain’s aid to Delhi was partly “about seeking to sell Typhoon.”

Mr Mukherjee’s remarks, previously unreported outside India, were made during question time in the Rajya Sabha, the upper house of parliament.

“We do not require the aid,” he said, according to the official transcript of the session.

“It is a peanut in our total development exercises [expenditure].” He said the Indian government wanted to “voluntarily” give it up.

According to a leaked memo, the foreign minister, Nirumpama Rao, proposed “not to avail [of] any further DFID [British] assistance with effect from 1st April 2011,” because of the “negative publicity of Indian poverty promoted by DFID”.

But officials at DFID, Britain’s Department for International Development, told the Indians that cancelling the programme would cause “grave political embarrassment” to Britain, according to sources in Delhi.

DFID has sent more than £1 billion of UK taxpayers’ money to India in the last five years and is planning to spend a further £600 million on Indian aid by 2015.

“They said that British ministers had spent political capital justifying the aid to their electorate,” one source told The Sunday Telegraph.

“They said it would be highly embarrassing if the Centre [the government of India] then pulled the plug.”

Amid steep reductions in most British government spending, the NHS and aid have been the only two budgets protected from cuts.

Britain currently pays India around £280 million a year, six times the amount given by the second-largest bilateral donor, the United States. Almost three-quarters of all foreign bilateral aid going to India comes from Britain. France, chosen as favourite to land the warplane deal, gives around £19 million a year.

Controversial British projects have included giving the city of Bhopal £118,000 to help fit its municipal buses and dustcarts with GPS satellite tracking systems. Bhopal’s buses got satellite tracking before most of Britain’s did.

In India, meanwhile, government audit reports found £70 million had disappeared from one DFID-funded project alone.

Around £44,000 of British aid was allegedly siphoned off by one project official to finance a movie directed by her son.

Most aid donors to India have wound down their programmes as it has become officially a “middle-income country,” according to the World Bank.

However, Britain has reallocated its aid spending to focus on India at the expense of some far poorer countries, including the African state of Burundi, which is having its British bilateral aid stopped altogether from next year.

The decision comes even though India has a £6 billion space programme, nuclear weapons and has started a substantial foreign aid programme of its own. It now gives out only slightly less in bilateral aid to other countries than it receives from Western donors.

Supporters of British aid say that India still contains about a third of the world’s poor, with 450 million people living on less than 80p a day. DFID says its programmes — which are now focused on the country’s three poorest states - save at least 17,000 lives a year and have lifted 2.3 million people out of poverty since 2005.

The junior development minister, Alan Duncan, said last week that cutting off British aid to India “would mean that hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people, will die who otherwise could live.”

However, Mr Mukherjee told the parliament last August that foreign aid from all sources amounted to only 0.4 per cent of India’s gross domestic product. From its own resources, the Indian government has more than doubled spending on health and education since 2003.

Last year, it announced a 17 per cent rise in spending on anti-poverty programmes. Though massive inequalities remain, India has achieved substantial reductions in poverty, from 60 per cent to 42 per cent of the population in the last thirty years.

Emma Boon, campaign director of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “It is incredible that ministers have defended the aid we send to India, insisting it is vital, when now we learn that even the Indian government doesn’t want it.”

As long ago as 2005, MPs on the international development select committee found that India “seems to have become increasingly tired of being cast in the role of aid recipient.” In their most recent report on the programme, last year, they said that British aid to the country should “change fundamentally,” with different sources of funding. The report praised a number of DFID projects, but questioned others.

As well as the Indian government, many other Indians are sceptical about British aid. Malini Mehra, director of an Indian anti-poverty pressure group, the Centre for Social Markets, said aid was “entirely irrelevant” to the country’s real problems, which she said were the selfishness of India’s rich and the unresponsiveness of its institutions.

“DFID are not able to translate the investments they make on the ground into actual changes in the kind of structures that hold back progress,” Ms Mehra said.

“Unless we arouse that level of indignation and intolerance of the situation, aid will make no difference whatsoever.”

Mr Mitchell last night defended British aid, saying: “Our completely revamped programme is in India’s and Britain’s national interest and is a small part of a much wider relationship between our two countries.

“We are changing our approach in India. We will target aid at three of India’s poorest states, rather than central Government.

“We will invest more in the private sector, with our programme having some of the characteristics of a sovereign wealth fund. We will not be in India forever, but now is not the time to quit.”

DFID declined to comment on why it had asked the Indian government to continue with a programme it wanted to end.

What is Britain? A nation of thugs & looters and killers. They looted India and several other countries and whatever they have they owe all of it to these nations. If all the countries come together and claim our looted wealth they will don't have anything left.

What else would you expect from the readers of the Daily Mail!

It doesn't represent UK public. Daily Mail is a right wing paper. The same paper that wanted people to vote for Brexit and supported the 'leave' campaign vehemently and have in the past praised Hitler.

The Times, The Daily Telegraph and Guardian represent British middle class properly.

I'm sure India also has some news outlets whose readers are not a startified sample of India.

Kaziranga report gets BBC banned from tiger reserves for 5 years
Vijay Pinjarkar | TNN | Updated: Feb 28, 2017, 12.01 PM IST

An Indian one horn Rhino inside the Kaziranga National Park (PTI File Photo)
HIGHLIGHTS
  • The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) governs all tiger reserves in the country.
  • NTCA has imposed a ban on the network and its journalist Justin Rowlatt for five years.
NAGPUR: Stung by a BBC documentaryquestioning India's aggressive protection measures at Kaziranga national park in Assam, the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) that governs all tiger reserves in the country has imposed a ban on the network and its journalist Justin Rowlatt for five years.
As reported by TOI on February 15, BBC's South Asia correspondent Justin Rowlatt's documentary titled `One World: Killing for Conservation' on Kaziranga's rhino conservation methods came in for sharp criticism from the Union environment ministry for being "grossly erroneous". The documentary had claimed forest guards in Kaziranga had been given powers to shoot and kill anyone they think was a threat to rhinos.

In a memorandum issued on Monday evening, NTCA said BBC had failed to submit the documentary to MoEFCC and Ministry of External Affairs for obligatory previewing "in order to remove any deviations, so as to achieve a balanced and accurate exposition of the theme".

It has asked chief wildlife wardens of all tiger range states and field directors of tiger reserves to disallow filming permission to BBC for five years.

Why India is not a great nation Source : SIFY Last Updated: Tue, Oct 13, 2009 07:48 hrs Major General Mrinal Suman, AVSM, VSM, PhD, commanded an Engineer Regiment on the Siachen Glacier, the most hostile battlefield in the world. A highly qualified officer (B Tech, MA (Public Administration), MSc (Defence Studies) and a Doctorate in Public Administration) he was also the Task Force Commander at Pokhran and was responsible for designing and sinking shafts for the nuclear tests of May 1998. As India celebrates 62 years of Independence, one tends to wonder: what makes nations great? Why is the US an undisputed world power? Why has Britain remained undefeated for centuries? Why has India succumbed to foreign rule so often? Why is India still struggling with internal dissensions and fissiparous forces? What does India lack? A chance meeting with a British army veteran in a train from Edinburgh to London proved highly revealing. According to him, the secret of British success lies in the public support and respect extended to the soldiers. `Soldiers` loyalty to the nation and readiness for the supreme sacrifice are driven less by material considerations and more by an overwhelming urge to earn love and respect of their countrymen. A grateful nation`s recognition of their contribution to national security acts as the strongest motivator,` he declared. `Britain never forgets its war heroes. Every major landmark in London is named after distinguished soldiers and not politicians,` he pointed out proudly. To prove his point further, he recalled, `Before World War II, it was not uncommon to see placards hanging outside some restaurants in Paris which read `Dogs, lackeys and soldiers not allowed`. On the other hand, even pregnant women used to get up and offer seats to soldiers in London buses. When the war broke out, France capitulated in no time while Britain remained undefeated.` In an article written two days before the swearing-in of US President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle devoted 515 out of 863 words to the soldiers and their families. `So as I watch Barack take that oath, I`ll be thinking especially about those members of our American family who stand guard across the world and the loved ones who await their safe return... My husband and I are deeply grateful for the sacrifices that these families make to protect all American families. And we join them -- today and every day -- in praying for their loved ones and their safety. They don`t ask a lot in return, just a Washington that understands the challenges they face as part of their extraordinary commitment to our country... My husband understands that commitment, and he will ensure America lives up to its end,` she wrote. `On Tuesday night, my husband and I will tuck in our daughters like we always do. Their bedrooms will be different, their home unfamiliar. But they will drift off to sleep protected by that same sacrifice that has kept all of our families safe and safeguarded our freedom for generations -- the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform and their families...For that, we could not be more grateful -- or more proud,` she added. Now let us compare the above with the state of affairs in India. Can anyone recall a similar expression of sentiments by a national figure? Except for perfunctory platitudes on Independence Day, the Government has singularly failed to show compassion for the soldiers or tried to redress their genuine grievances. Apathetic political leadership and bureaucracy have made no attempt to understand the intensity of sense of hurt of the soldiers at their continued neglect and deliberate degradation. Despite repeated representations, India still does not have a war memorial in the capital to honour independent India`s martyrs. India wants to ape the West in all sundry aspects, but not in matters that affect the well-being and morale of the armed forces. The Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington in Washington, the Arc de Triomphe in Paris and the Cenotaph in London are admired by all Indian visitors. Yet the absence of a suitable war memorial in New Delhi does not appear odd to them. Surprisingly, it does not even hurt the conscience of the nation. There is no other country that can be so apathetic to the memory of thousands of soldiers who have laid down their lives for its security. Our Urban Development Ministry is more concerned with the vestiges of the British rule, and opposes a war memorial near India Gate in the name of preserving heritage. India Gate was built in the memory of soldiers who died in World War I during the British rule. India has fought five wars since Independence and over 40,000 soldiers have made the supreme sacrifice. Opposition to a war memorial on frivolous grounds is an affront to the memory of martyrs and displays shameless insensitivity to the feelings of those who have lost their family members. But then, no political leader or bureaucrat can be faulted for their inability to appreciate these issues as they never send their progeny to the military. Look at the treatment meted out to India`s tallest military leader, Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, the architect of India`s greatest victory ever. It took the Government decades to determine and release his dues. India has not found him worthy of its highest national honour, the `Bharat Ratna`. No political leader thought it necessary to attend his funeral. In Britain and the US, heads of the State with full national leadership would have made it a point to be present to pay a nation`s grateful respects. Nelson`s Column at Trafalgar Square occupies the pride of place in London. London boasts of numerous statues of military heroes. No statues of political leaders are seen in the developed countries. India, on the contrary, has not found it necessary to honour Field Marshal Manekshaw`s memory whereas statues of political leaders (many with dubious credentials) dot New Delhi. It will not be out of place here to recall the speech of President Obama at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention at the Phoenix Convention Center on 17 August 2009. He said, `You have fulfilled your responsibilities. And now a grateful nation must fulfill ours. Whether you've left the service in 2009 or 1949, we will fulfill our responsibility to deliver the benefits and care that you earned.` He described America`s commitment to its veterans as sacred bonds and a sacred trust Americans are honour bound to uphold. `You have done your duty - to your fallen comrades, to your communities, to your country. You have always fulfilled your responsibilities to America. And so long as I am President of the United States, America will always fulfill its responsibilities to you`, he declared. Contrast the above pledge and assurance with the apathetic treatment meted out to the ex-servicemen in India. In the recent past, India was witness to the most unfortunate sight of numerous military veterans returning their medals to the President to register their protest against the Government`s indifference to their pleas. Medals earned during active service are the proudest possession of soldiers, and their being driven to surrender them should have made the Government sit up and take note. But true to its wont, it remained totally unconcerned and unmoved. Not a single Government leader or official has considered it necessary to talk to the protesting veterans to resolve the issues. This episode will certainly go down as a dark chapter in the history of Independent India. India won the Kargil War of 1999 at a huge cost -- 527 officers and soldiers sacrificed their lives while over a 1,000 sustained battle injuries, many maimed forever. Yet, a senior Congress leader, Mr Rashid Alvi, had the impudence to state that commemoration was not warranted as the war took place due to an intelligence failure of the BJP Government. Every Indian soldier, both serving and retired, was aghast at the brazenness of the logic. A notion has been deliberately perpetuated that the military must be kept under control through the bureaucracy lest it acquires political ambitions. Examples of Pakistan and Bangladesh are quoted to implant the fear of a military takeover in the minds of gullible and ignorant political leadership. A systematic and well planned strategy has been orchestrated to downgrade the military`s standing. The Sixth Central Pay Commission was the latest master stroke. Although the public at large still holds the military in high esteem, a deliberate media campaign is being orchestrated by some elements with vested interests to show the military in a poor light. Instead of appreciating the military for initiating prompt disciplinary action against defaulters -- handful acts of misdemeanor and indiscretion in a 1.3 million strong organisation -- such cases are sensationalised to paint a negative picture of the services. Historically, India does not have a culture of valuing its military. That is the reason that every invader succeeded in defeating and enslaving the sub-continent. If India survives today despite inept political leadership and the self-serving bureaucracy, it is only due to the unquestioned loyalty of the military and enormous sacrifices made by the soldiers. Denigration of the military always proves fatal in the long run. Any country that discredits the status of its soldiers loses the moral right to expect them to die for its security. Great nations are distinguished by the esteem in which they hold their military. No nation that stubbornly declines to honour the martyrs, respect the soldiers and care for the veterans can ever aspire to be counted amongst the great nations, slogans like `Mera Bharat Mahan` not withstanding.
