Second hander.

The following picked statement was picked from a blog I came across. With due apologies to the blogger. Read the following statement by MacCauley, British politician and historian. Taken from Lord MacCauley's Minutes of 1835, a famous speech in the British Parliament, Lord MacCauly said: "Lord Macaulay's presentation to the British Parliament "I have travelled across the length and breadth of Hindusthan [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 calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone 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 lose their self-esteem, their native self- culture and they will become what we want them, a truly a dominated nation."
