What is the point of having education if people indulge in cheap politics. Politics has ruined everything in this country. Only the rich continue to survive and the others suffer without any help.

Winston Churchill was one of the reasons...though not in the period covered here

Winston Churchill intentionally diverted the food crops to Europe. Millions upon Millions starved in Bengal.

Thank you for sharing the pdf! Very important, indeed!

Reparations is a small word.

Will read.


Devil in human form caused it
