Lord Curzon - Viceroy of India 1898-1905. He is remembered for doing good work in India - building schools, setting up a national irrigation system and rebuilding old Indian buildings, restoring the Taj Mahal.
‘After every other Viceroy has been forgotten, Curzon will be remembered because he restored all that was beautiful in India.’ Indian leader Nehru
'India has become impoverished by their (Britain’s) government. They take away our money from year to year. The most important jobs are reserved for themselves. We are kept in a state of slavery. They behave insolently towards us and disregard our feelings.’ Mohandas K. Gandhi, ‘Indian Home Rule’ 1938.
‘We do not care enough to stop them dying slow and terrible deaths, from things we could easily stop. We have taken their land, and we rule it, for our good, not theirs.’ Florence Nightingale, following the Indian famine of the late 1800s, where approx. 6 million Indians died.
