"Power will go to the hands of rascals, rogues, freebooters; all Indian leaders will be of low calibre & men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight amongst themselves for power and India will be lost in political squabbles.”

Indian is quite well known. Who will forget his well-documented bigotry, articulated often with glee and contempt. "I hate Indians," he once trumpeted. "They are a beastly people with a beastly religion." (Vide: the Leo Amery diaries; September 1942). Infamously, when conscientious British officials from Delhi sent a telegram to Churchill about the unabated famine and tragedy in Bengal, he peevishly scribbled on the file,"why Gandhi had not died yet? (vide Leo Amery diaries; Sept. 1942). On Churchill's interference 170,000 tons of Australian wheat bypassed starving NE India - destined not for consumption but for storage to be used by Europeans. Churchill's mismanagement and racist tendency resulted in the worst human tragedy in Bengal. Half of the causalities could have been saved had proper care been taken on time. This "I don't care a fig" attitude of Churchill resulted in the painful death of 3 million plus Indians because they (to him) happened to be so called "inferior race". Churchill, with sarcasm, put the blame on Indians for the famine, claiming they "breed like rabbits". To many outside the Western world, he remains a down-to-earth racist and a never-compromising imperialist thriving on the economy of the colonies that kept the British economy in good nick. He did not leave the Palestinians either, His lousy remarks on Palestinians as "barbaric hordes who ate little but camel dung" exposes his immaturity, loathing and hatred for other races. Churchill hated Gandhiji and his non-cooperation movements. He described Gandhiji as "half-naked seditious fakir," When there were so many mature intellectual and far superior political leaders in the UK, how come the knowledgeable British people rest the laurels on one man - a conservative British politician of yore Churchill, a despicable character who openly practiced racism and waged his tongue so wildly as to hurt other races and individuals.

His oratory and excellent writing skills hid his inefficiency, self doubting and poor administrative skill. You can not bully your colleagues using your debating skill and force them to swallow any non-sense you talk and yet admire you. His domineering personality, lack of tolerance and response to others' opinion went against him. Hence, he remained chest-deep mired in controversy till his last days. That his moral courage and patriotic spirit helped his nation go past the tumultuous World War II period is a myth. The appeal in his name has
no sheen or something tempting to invoke respect. Nor do his hundreds of quotes on perseverance, courage, etc. which are all just made up, plain spurious. Yet another myth is Churchill withstood Nazism for good and saved the western liberal democracy from its free fall, The Time magazine in Jan. 2, 1950 issue hailed the British leader as the "man of the half century".
Nazi's advanced war machines and far superior Air force and Navy gave Churchill nightmares and heartburn and made him jittery to the point of losing his undergarments. It is true his patriotic zeal during the war time is not questionable. The credit goes to the Americans and to a great extent to the Russians and at that crucial period all Churchill did was played a second fiddle and had a picture taken with charismatic President Roosevelt and dynamic Russian President Stalin. Many people may not be aware that it was the valiant Indian Army that gave extra support to the British Army to prop up its extra energy. The timely intervention of America in WW II with better war weapons and Navy and the unexpected German Army's fiasco against the powerful Russian Army in Russia during the harsh winter gave Churchill the needed break, good enough to keep his drenched head above the water and this timely luck fell in line with his famous speech and quotes. The dame luck smiled on Churchill and saved his battered ego.
To the western media: "It was a victory shaped by the steeliness of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the moral fiber of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and the awesome power of an atomic bomb. In the Russian war theater, the story is different.
"Starting in 1941, the Soviet Union bore the brunt of the Nazi war machine and played perhaps the most important role in the Allies' defeat of Hitler. By one calculation, for every single American soldier killed fighting the Germans, 80 Soviet soldiers died doing the same....................By 1943, the Soviet Union had already lost some 5 million soldiers and two-thirds of its industrial capacity to the Nazi advance. That it was yet able to turn back the German invasion is testament to the courage of the Soviet war effort. But it came at a shocking price. Americans on their part used their powerful Air Force and Navy diligently in the west European war front.

The presence of the bust of Churchill, a well-known racist in the White House in Washington obviously created waves and strong criticism on both sides of the Atlantic. President Trump's political gimmick has won him more spat than admiration. Keeping the bust of Churchill in the "White House" that was once occupied by great men like Abe Lincoln, Roosevelt, Kennedy and Obama is a sad news for the Americans. To him "India was a "godless land of snobs and bores". If Churchill were the American President, beefing, whinging and churning out gaffes, his political fate would have been much worse than former US President of "Water Gate Scandal" fame Richard Nixon (Tricky Dick) who openly lied to the NBC audience in the 1970s: " I am not a crook".
