Quotation of the Day for July 17, 2010
"...it is impossible for us, with our limited means, to attempt to educate the body of the people. We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern; a class of persons, Indian in blood and colour, but English in taste, in opinions, in morals, and in intellect."
- Thomas Babington Macaulay, member of the Governor General`s Council, in Calcutta, in 1834. Quoted in The New Yorker, May 31, 2010.
[The submitter notes: in 1857, English speaking universities were opened in Madras, Bombay, and Calcutta.]
