We Say:

Frankly, we are as impressed with Dr. Shashi Tharoor as the 2 million + others are who viewed the video and caused it to go viral (we are sure they were impressed whether they liked it or not). We all knew that the Britain governed India to suit its empire. We also knew that they looted India as much as the Moghuls before them did. However, the figures that Dr. Tharoor present do boggle the mind- India's contribution to world economy went from 23% to 4% post British rule? You have got to watch the video to know to learn the impact of colonization by the British empire. In fact, this video is a must watch for all, for generations to come. Watch it, show it to your kids, share it with your parents and grandparents and save the page for the subsequent generations. Dr. Tharoor is obviously an eloquent speaker. The fact that the presentation is laced with humor and sarcasm, makes it a more interesting watch.
