Did they suceed? LORD MACAULAY’S ADDRESS TO THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT 2 FEBRUARY 1835

“I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen a single person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such high calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than her own, they will lose their self esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated country.”
