Winstom Churchil was dead against granting Independence to India. His comments were :
- Power will go to rascals, rogues, freebooters.
All leaders will be of low caliber & men of straw.
They’ll have sweet tongues & silly hearts.
They will fight amongst themselves for power & the two countries will be lost in political squabbles.
A day would come when even air & water will be taxed.
- He wrote this 64 years ago.
- Incredibly we Indian have worked very hard to prove him right.
