Famous quotes containing the words india and/or british:

    There exists no politician in India daring enough to attempt to explain to the masses that cows can be eaten.
    Indira Gandhi (1917–1984)

    All of Western tradition, from the late bloom of the British Empire right through the early doom of Vietnam, dictates that you do something spectacular and irreversible whenever you find yourself in or whenever you impose yourself upon a wholly unfamiliar situation belonging to somebody else. Frequently it’s your soul or your honor or your manhood, or democracy itself, at stake.
    June Jordan (b. 1939)
