    Just shows my ignorance, I never even realised!

    Congratulations, I bet the celebrations are great!

    But, just playing Devils Advocate, was British rule a bad thing for the Country overall?

    Thanks for the congratulation.
    British rule was a hell(sorry to say that)..

    They started collecting triple taxes even it was the time of drought.
    They stole a lot of resources from here.
    They even stole away the KOHINOOR DIAMOND which is right now placed in the crown of Queen of UK.

    What more.... We had no weapons.. so, we started boycotting against their goods(they used to take raw materials from us and finalize them as perfect goods and they used to sell them us)

    We boycotted against their cloths and they sent army to remove and burn our cloths. That army also pulled out the cloths of Women and those Women had to jump in the
    Wells and Rivers because of shy(shame)...

    Uh!!! But, still we're unable to recover.

    Thats the reason of standard of living of India being very low.
    Ex : Our Driver Gets $80 Per Month As Salary(Govt. Driver - They Pay His Salary)

    So, just think.... he lives with his wife and 3 children earning only $80 per month.

    Our Annual Per capita Income is $425.. :(
