There is a school of thought in India now inhabited by people like that idiot Suhel Seth who say that British rule was good for India because it gave us railways and roads. Of course overlooking the fact that this was done to steal India's wealth.
Nobody talks about the deliberate famines. One such famine was in 1943 which was whitewashed by that sucker Amartya Sen for which he won the Nobel Prize.
Bengal, that land of plenty where abundant fish is found int the clear ponds and endowed with fertile lands, saw 5.2 million of its citizenry starve to death.
And all this only because Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose had formed the INA after being sidelined in the INC.
Winston Churchill was a manic depressive, prone to mood swings and he was drunk throughout the day.
He was a vindictive man, rather a diabolical person clinically. Just because the Bengalis supported Netaji who was close to the Japanese at the time, this ruthless man too great pains to starve Bengal which was connected to the rest of India by rail, roads, aircraft and ships.
The British secretly confiscated every single boat, every single vehicle, including -- hold your breath-- bullock carts.
Why isn't this holocaust ever mentioned? Do Indian lives not count?
