What Churchill Did To India

(Penguin Petit)


"The 'uniting' of India under the Imperial rule has always been considered as a great British achievement. However, a close look at British politics of the time paints quite a different picture. From believing that India was home to 'backward races' with no capacity for self-government to continuing to use Hindu-Muslim antagonism as a tool to prolong British rule in India, Churchill's intentions in the last few decades of the Raj are quite revealing. Read on to get an insight into India as envisioned by Winston Churchill, one of the most influential leaders in British history."
