    WW1 happened almost a century ago. There is nothing to remember here.

    Sadly bitterness has led to some people missing the joke.

    It didn't feature in Battlefield 1.

    And the Irish got their independence... for a while. Although sadly they voted against the Lisbon Treaty... twice... and still had it forced down their throats by the EU. So imperialism still existed, it's just more sophisticated and disguised these days.

    What about the millions killed by the Cholas? How should we remember them?

    Food was short all round during WWII.

    I thought you were better than that .Quoting unverified and dubious sources ?? Wiki and an internet conversation between nobodies is all you have to support your spurious theory of "millions " killed in the Chola conquests ? As opposed to the millions killed in famines during the British rule in India and Ireland too - all of which have been well documented and accepted by Brit historians too not to mention modern slave trafficking of Indians to remote outposts in the Pacific and Indian Oceans apart from the Carribean renamed "indentured labour " for brevity - the soul of wit and black humour too in your case (and that much admired trait of the Brits - hypocrisy , something which inspite of being Irish you've inherited .Wonder how ? Wink wink , nudge nudge )

    Need I add opium smuggling into China , cultivated in India , by Indian peasants being subjected to duress by the East India Company ? I could go on .All of which would buttress our point on why your countrymen were the scum of the earth and rabid parasites of humanity .

    P.S - you certainly come out better than the Nazis .Isn't it a flattering comparison and thought ?

    For tamilians the cholas and pandyas are both Tamil dynasties like the families in the war of the roses. No you stole our food for buffer stocks and even prevented Australia and us from landing food they offered when they realized what was happening. Churchill was a bastard festing on caviar and roasted beef with champagne everyday while millions of Indians died.

    I thought you'd be better than blaming a food shortage during WWII on Churchill.

    I merely pointed out that the Cholas were cruel, as all empires of that era were. Millions dying of hunger and malnutrition in India is a normal year but the UK apologises for the Nazis sinking ships with U-boats and having to borrow some food so that they could maintain the war machine and liberate Europe.

    Potato blight affected all of Europe you idiot, the Irish were just more dependent on potatoes.

    Indentured labour was not slavery, nor was slavery new to India.

    Duress? Are we talking about the same people who invaded their own country for a regular pay cheque?

    Something to do with not trying to exterminate a race probably.

    Took food for frontline troops.

    And what about Indonesia and Malaysia, the Cholas invaded them too. I think you only take exception to the British because they were white, but the British Empire was not an exception to the rule, empire creation was the rule up until WWII.

    A food shortage deliberately created to serve nefarious purposes denying those whose lives depended on it . Please reflect your garrulous heritage at least when it comes to being honest with words unlike the thrifty English - both in money and words .

    Millions died because your countrymen were busy leeching blood to satisfy their greed.

    Have you no decency or humanity , man , to dismiss the millions who died from starvation due to a famine where food shortages were engineered to ensure that your people benefitted from the produce of my land ??

    You've betrayed your true colours .You're just another racist out here for whom the colour of one's skin decides his heirachy in the food chain . Shame on you !!

    Here are a few articles as references to prove that Churchmouse was indeed a pimp of Indian labour and a leech of its prosperity - a supreme parasite and arch defender of colonization.

    http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2031992,00.html

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...roor-melbourne-writers-festival-a7936141.html


    Excerpts from the second article -

    He added: “People started dying and Churchill said well it’s all their fault anyway for breeding like rabbits. He said ‘I hate the Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion’.”

    He added: “Churchill has as much blood on his hands as Hitler does. Particularly the decisions that he personally signed off during the Bengal Famine when 4.3 million people died because of the decisions he took or endorsed."

    "Not only did the British pursue its own policy of not helping the victims of this famine which was created by their policies. Churchill persisted in exporting grain to Europe, not to feed actual ‘Sturdy Tommies’, to use his phrase, but add to the buffer stocks that were being piled up in the event of a future invasion of Greece and Yugoslavia”.

    “Ships laden with wheat were coming in from Australia docking in Calcutta and were instructed by Churchill not to disembark their cargo but sail on to Europe,” he added. “And when conscience-stricken British officials wrote to the Prime Minister in London pointing out that his policies were causing needless loss of life all he could do was write peevishly in the margin of the report, ‘Why hasn’t Gandhi died yet?'"




    True.It reflects in their intelligence - a good example of which is on display here .

    Here's the difference between slavery and indentured labour - just a step up from slavery .I've enclosed an article for your reference , so that your feeble brain can tell the difference , if you're not brain dead and are capable of cognitive intelligence unlike most of your potato consuming brethren ,you nin cum poop.

    https://www.reference.com/history/difference-between-slavery-indentured-servitude-cbb230fea37b1dcb#

    Here are a few references of "collaboration" with the Conquerors by the natives , in both - your adopted land and the land of your origin.

    Saxon collaboration with the Normans post the Normans conquering England .

    Irish collaboration with the English post the English colonising Ireland .

    I'm guessing freedom is a universal need but there are other pressing wants that need addressing while agitating for freedom which necessitates a modus vivendi .Then of course there's greed to be contended with as well by elements of the colonisers and the colonised.

    Modern republic of India is not the successor of Cholas or Pandyas or Cheras.

    But even more millions dying in colonial India out of malnutrition and sometimes starvation isn't a problem at all.
