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.
