Dear Mr. Kay T,

I do not forget anything. But do you remember the 30 million deaths that occured in India due to famine thanks to British rule between 1870-s and 1910-s? Now that was caused by British rule in India , right ? So why do you so-called "enlightened , patriotic" Indians forget it ? Is it because you are from that section of Indian population which tries to find a Muslim hand behind every bad thing in India ?

For details please refer to this paper by google searching the same. "The British Empire, Ecology and Famines in Late 19th Century Central India" By Laxman D. Satya Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania
