Amritsar Massacre at 95

Memorial of the Amritsar MassacreFive years short of century ago today, in the aftermath of the Great War, the Amritsar Massacre took place.

This was most unfortunate in many ways – to put it mildly. And one can certainly understand why many Indians didn't want to continue with the British Crown – and still have a hatred towards the British Raj.

That being said, it can absolutely be argued that India is no better off – in several aspects – than under the Raj in best case, and probably worse.
