The Reality Behind the Blood and Tears, Part 2 – The Hidden Face of India

Visitors to India are mesmerised by the lavish appearance of cities such as Bombay. They leave with the impression that British rule has led to the affluence and advancement of the country. However, this is a deliberately created illusion, and it is indeed the aim of Britain to invoke such a feeling of admiration.

In reality, who pays the cost of the railroad, the telephone, and all other facilities and construction projects?

Those who visit India must not stop at the level of glancing about superficially, but should look deeper to uncover the truth lying beneath the surface. Do not limit yourself to the urban areas, but travel to distant towns and villages and interact with the people there.

The initial illusion of prosperity was no indication of the prosperity of the Indian people. It was only a sign of the affluence enjoyed by the ruling powers as a result of their exploitation of the mass population.

We must not overlook the reality of who paid for the construction costs of the magnificent buildings that the British lived in, worked in, and rented out.  We cannot forget that while the British lived in great comfort, the Indian people suffered in appalling misery.

This must not be ignored.
