The Financial Express carried an article today on how much financial damage the British Rule has done during its 200 year colonial rule of India. Isn’t it not that the British damage went beyond economic damages to more of a mindset damage to India?
This observation of Foreign Minister Sri Jaishankar now, (and Dr Shashi Tharoor before) and the research on how much the British robbed India of, is just the tip of iceberg. The greatest damage the British did was to the psyche of the people. They not only made India an economic colony,

How Britain stole $45 trillion from India

To begin with, the British introduced a slew of well thought out measures to divide them along “caste lines” by malicious misinterpretation of the Ancient Indian scriptures, introduced and strengthen the non existent caste system to suit their own nefarious designs,

They were the one who First Promoted Cow slaughterhouse during 1700 century for slaughtering 30,000 cows per day in Kolkatta and allowed killing to damage Indian Agriculture which was COW BASED.

Incidentally, it was British who promoted liquor shops in Kolkatta to get the Indians addicted.

They also allowed prostitution (and that too after having branded Mujra as a brothel), which again disoriented our people.

The British forcibly introduced western style management of natural resources by forcing the people to abandon local wisdom learnt and perfected through centuries,

They changed the education system (called as Macaluy system whose aim was ostensibly to colonise India minds) and form to promote their own interests by poisoning the minds of young innocent learners in the “guise of guiding them”,,

The British with their eye on future, wrote Indian history with a malicious design to denigrate the “Wonder that was India” divided India in every possible way to demoralise Indian people, prevented in every possible way that they never draw any pride from the past, and behave like a nation. Thus they distorted and presented Indian history in a written form and destroyed the truthful source so that the true history could never be found out. Moreover the other purpose of writing history was with a designed intent to divide the perception and distort it never to allow them to reach consensus.

They Inserted deceits and cheating in the minds of Indians which was unheard of, like what they did to various Princely states

One sign of their disruptive destructive conflict oriented strategy introduced in India was the creat ion the prorupted shape of NE India and East Pakistan so that India be constantly be troubled, and they can play a role in that divisive policies even thousands of kns away, and a rift and breakage that can be created from even away,

They gave India the most lethal poison in the name of present Bureaucracy to hold the progress of India much as possible….Incidentally the colonially trained bureaucracy dies the same thing and behave as if the deptt and the district they are meant to serve and administer is their personal fiefdom

Even when they left, they handed India to Jawahar Lal Nehru, a truly British representative who was out to harm infant “INDIA” and this also was the final nail in the coffin to let Indians impoverish happily in the name of democracy.

The entire design of the Britishers from the beginning was to denigrate Hinduism, that’s why other than horribalisation of Hinduism, they reinterprated, created and sustained “CASTE SYSTEM ” even by bribing them to divide themselves (the Brahmin community)

The irony is that Hindus still feel and carry the caste insertion of the British in every possible manner. CASTE as a colonial tool to rule was later followed by so called Indian democracy.

The British could never understand the symbolism Hinduism or even the spiritual form of Hinduism was, and which they constantly krot mockeding. This job is now better done by elite convent educated Indians themselves.

Anyone who comes to understand the nefarious designs of the British will seethe with anger, and bleed from heart. How can Humanity be so wicked, so cruel, so lowly cultured, so selfish and full of calumny, so uncivilised…….

The worst thing has been they won the trust of Indians purposefully to harm, they befriend to stab, they showed emotions to behave like robots, they respected with an intent to demean, they showed truthful loyalty with a hidden agenda to deceit…….Human values, dignity, respect, trust, faith, social capital….All were destroyed in the process of British rule.

Every place they made their colony they replaced the high cultural values of that place with their own paradigm whose cornerstone was a complete destruction of everything that epitomises “HUMAN” with a highly uncultured, deceitful, tactical agenda based and opportunistic relationship and symbolic of UNCIVILISED SOCIETY.

Human beings in the places affected by Britishers have since then NEVER BEEN TRUE HUMANS.

British mindset in India followed by the Muslim rule of forced subjugation have what made Indian psyche what it is now.

Remove the British influence and you will observe that the world would have never faced any environmental problem, any unsustainable management both humanistically, naturally and from economic perspective….

Perception Management through deceit, winning loyalties to deceit, manifold ways to manipulate…..All of these traits were inserted, some seeded, some were glamourised, and the rest encouraged…



“A single shelf of a good European library was worth the whole native literature of India and Arabia,” Macaulay wrote in the Minute.

He envisaged creating “a class of persons, Indian in blood and colour, but English in taste, in opinions, in morals, and in intellect”.

The Minute is based on an idea that English education is not just superior in ‘science’, but would also inculcate superior morals, etc. that were responsible for making the English superior.

While the Minute acknowledged the historic role of Sanskrit and Arabic literature in the subcontinent, it also contended that they had limitations.

Was this speech was delivered by Macaulay in British parliament? Got many articles saying that this speech was not delivered by Macaulay. Is it true? What are the facts behind this speech?

I have traveled 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 calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer 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 lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.

And got the quote from here and also reference here.

It is concluded that the above speech mentioned in first in question was not delivered by Macaulay, reasons supporting this conclusion are quite convincing by TED’s answer and also the ngrams by Felix also point to the same.

As I got another controversial version of the speech from the links mentioned by T.E.D I thought of doing ngram searches on this version too. The other version of the speech from the links is:

I accept catholic beyond the across and across of India and I accept not apparent one getting who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such abundance I accept apparent in this country, such top moral values, humans of such caliber, that I do not anticipate we would anytime beat this country, unless we breach the actual courage of this nation, which is her airy and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I adduce that we alter her old and age-old apprenticeship system, her culture, for if the Indians anticipate that all that is adopted and English is acceptable and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their built-in self-culture and they will become what we ambition them, a absolutely bedeviled nation.

The British didn’t stop there.
They inserted Jesuits formed their own party Congress to mishuide the Indians in the name of freedom. Congress since inception has been under control of Jesuit sympathizers and  Subash Chandra Bose who were devout nationalists were thrown out….Nehru,  and Gandhi both trained in England were  sympathizers of Christian culture in Europe.  This was not so for Savarkar, Patel & Subash, though trained in England realized that Indian ethos, and lateral plus design thinking is far superior to Christianity who were mostly dominated by linear thinking Even after leaving India, they divided India in the name of freedom, gave half the territory to form a different country, established their cohorts to rule India to further dent the psyche…

India is still paying the price for this dented psychology in the form of daily conflicts, arising out of their own inability to differentiate between right and wrong truth and façade, genuine and false and thus form a perfect slave population..
