Lord Macaulay’s Address to the British Parliament 2nd February 1835
Here is the speech :
“I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a begger, 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 counquer 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 her 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 loose their self esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation. ”
Probably Macaulay (an english) understood more , the strength and power of Indian culture , education and heritage more than most Indians do today.
Baba Ramdev dictates : Its time to reverse the all the downfall of the Indian culture and heritage that took place in the past 5000 years.
