Fortunately or unfortunately, YES....
^^ why you said Fortunately or unfortunately, YES....
Do we need to prove losers are wrong ?
Since this statement, the British Empire has collapsed, the colonies in Asia and Africa gained independence. Except for a few small islands that passes off as British Overseas Territory, there is nothing left in the British Empire. Also, Commonwealth realm countries are waiting for the Queen to die so that they can vote to become a Republic (can't see how that wife cheater Charles will be accepted as the monarch). If the Scots get independence in 2014, there would no longer be any Britain. Northern Ireland would soon follow. India is marching ahead well with a strong democracy, emerging free market, global services outsourcing hub and a military power. Indian companies are acquiring big British businesses and millions have been removed out of poverty in the recent decades.
If only Hitler had invaded Britain instead of attacking Russia, nobody would be talking of this Churchill.
The fact that we are still alive intact even after 64 years of independence alone proves Mr.Churchil wrong.
Let alone our achievements.
Churchill is a great leader and statesman. He rally England against luffwaff onslaught and prevailed. Though his British empire never lasted one thousand years as he wanted, he was a patriot. India would benefit to have a leader like him.
I believe Churchill is partially right about India. I see a lot of Indians become scientist, engineers, managers and even successful CEOs. However, India as a country is corrupt and backward with an Indian as the leader. I know that it has make a progress in recent years. But I would say that an Indian with a European waitress is doing a better job than any the billion Indians. Churchill didn't anticipated that an European waitress would take over to prove him partially wrong.
Do not be a racist by saying that India is developing well only under the leadership of an European, not an Indian.
India would have proved Churchill right should Sonia has become the PM.
India could have achieved much then we are today, blame it on the shortsightedness of our policy makers, we're lagging far behind our potential.
