Britain’s Debt to India – Shashi Tharoor

In 2005 , Dr.Manmohan Singh went to Oxford to receive a honorary degree. He gave a speech there reflecting the intellectual slavery of many Congressmen. Out of the many aspects of the “benign” British rule  he stressed “even at the height of our campaign for freedom from colonial rule, we did not entirely reject the British claim to good governance.” 

11 Years after that speech, Dr.Shashi Tharoor another Congressman, demolishes the basis of that so-called benignity. It is rare to hear a speech on nationalism by a Congressman, so enjoy this rare speech !
