Tolstoy on Indian Independence

Tolstoy's observation on Indian Independence.

A commercial company enslaved a nation comprising two hundred million. Tell this to a man free from superstition and he would fail to grasp what those words mean.... Do not these figures make it clear that not the English, but the Indians, have enslaved themselves.

The same can be applied even now. People elect the politicians, and they only criticize them. The people enslaved themselves, and criticize the politicians who are honest in their dishonesty.
