second world war :- memories of child hood

Fear of air raids all through night it was dark ,like it is still in many areas of India due to political inefficiency causing current cuts even after all these years of Independence .

Next is the news about japan's plans to attack India through Assam, and that some congress leader named Bose is helping japan.I got scared.I ran to my mother and told her about what i heard, but mother calmed me down saying, Assam is very far from Travancore rajahs country -Thiruvithamkoor raajyam-and so don't worry.
later i got news that in 1942 Japan bombed India for the first time and attacked ports in Madras

still I used hear people saying that Japan has bombed -air raided- Ceylon- srilanka

and that they put a few bombs over madras-Chennai-and that they had put a few bombs over Calcutta and that their submarines were seen in the sea near kollam(Quilon) and that they captured Andaman and nicobar islands belonging to india etc etc etc .

sad news about millions of people dying due to lack of food, and it was true as most who died due to starvation was in north especially in Bengal and Calcutta .Bengal was single and not divided into Bangladesh and Indian Bengal.

Bengal had 30 or 40 famines
(depending on how one defines famine) during 182 years of British rule in Bengal. There are no reliable accounts of the number of people who died in these famines. We have only the figures put out by British colonialists.


But even given the limited data availability, once can see the

barbaric face of British colonialism

in IndiaFood deliveries from other parts of the country to Bengal were refused by the government in order to make food artificially scarce. This was an especially

cruel policy introduced in 1942 under the title "Rice Denial Scheme

Churchill repeatedly denied all food exports to India, in spite of the fact that about 2.4 million Indians served in British units during the Second World War


FAMINE in 1770

with a big bang, when approximately one third of the total population of Bengal died because of a drought. About 10 million people died! East India Company, which had occupied the country five years earlier


between 1942 and 1945. At least FOUR MILLION people died OF FAMINE

The Holocaust

in Germany was a minor event

compared to what the British did to BENGALI people

Britain was too busy looting as much as possible, and people were getting poorer day by day in India

In fact everybody knows that when Britain came to India in the 1700s ,

Britain was a poor country while Much of London’s wealth came from trading in slaves, AND Britain became rich at the expense of the countries it took over. The country exploited colonial lands and people. Most of the wealth from the colonies ended up in Britain


India was one of the richest countries of that time equal to present day USA IN 1750

left us as slumdogs in 1947
