INDIA, A DOMINATED NATION?

INDIA, A DOMINATED NATION?  

LORD MACAULAY’S ADDRESS TO THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT ON 2ND FEBRUARY 1835 

                         

“I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace the old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.”  

It is for the leaders and people of India to decide, if they want to see India as a dominated nation. Let Manmohan Singh and Vajpayee decide if they would continue to fight among themselves or confront the same adversary that has robbed India of its self-esteem, her culture, her ancient education system, her high moral values, her spiritual and cultural heritage. The West is bent on destroying everything in India, piece by piece. It is for us to realise what is happening to us and unite in a resolve to see India a proud and humane nation of proud and humane people that are worthy of peace and prosperity that is India’s true destiny.
