Base for this was laid long back in 1835 as per the words of Lord Macaulay's address to british parliament on 2nd feb 1835... I have travelled across length and breadth of india and i have not seen one person who is a begger, who is theif. Such wealth i have seen in the country , such high moral values, people of such caliber, that i donot think we would every conquer this country, unless we break the very back bone of this nation. which is her spritual and cultural heritage, and ,threfore, i propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the indians think that all is foreign and english is good and greater than their own. They will loose selfesteem,
