Indian Middle Class

India, a country stereotyped for its vast number of poor, also is home to what many consider to be the world’s largest middle class. The very size and population of India tends to obscure everything else about the country. For example, India, a nation stereotyped as famine stricken, last was devastated by a famine in 1943, before independence, when India was still ruled by the British. When the British finally left India in 1947, they fled a partitioned country wracked by war and dislocation. They also left behind the rule of law, democracy, an independent judiciary, a free press, railways, canals, and harbors. They introduced modern education and helped create a small middle class

Before the british, India was made up of several kingdoms. The best thing British did to Indians is to remind us that - 'United we(Indians) stand, divided we fall'.

Were not the British famous for the "Divide and Rule" Policy in India? or did they teach us/ made us realise after independance and the partition of the country that 'United we(Indians) stand, divided we fall'.
