British Plan to conquer India, that worked
Lord Macaulay's address to the British parliament on February 2nd 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 high calibre that I don't think we are ever going to conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and there I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and Englsih is good and is greater than their own, they will lose their self esteem, their culture and they will become what we want them, a truely dominated nation."
That plan of destroying ancient cultures have set us back centuries
