    I went to a palace in Rajasthan and was told that the walls used to be lined in jewels and gold. When the British came they ripped it all out...that moment made me really sad. I wish I could've witnessed such a beautiful place the way it was intended to be seen.

    One important piece left out of this documentary is that though India was divided into India and east/west paksitan, and India was supposedly meant to be a Hindu country, it was forced to become secular with muslims population allowed to stay back where as pakistan and bangladesh were allowed to become muslim only countries. So while in India muslim population was given a boost from 1947 onwards and it is predicted that by 2050 muslims in India would become the largest population of muslims in any country in the world, Hindus in pakistan, Kashmir valley and bangladesh were murdered, raped, converted and reduced, from over 30% in 1947 to 1.5% in 2015. So no this documentary does not describe the propaganda against the Hindus but only raises the selective issues. We are neither secular nor are we liberal becoz both these attributes have lead us towards destruction. Also India was quite capable of inventions on it's own, the textile production was banned in India by the British and then the textile technology was stolen away to their homeland. MK Gandhi's Charkha symbol represents the right of Indian people on textile technology that British stole from India. There are many other technologies which British and Germans stole from India. Then British stole what Germans had from the Nazis after WW2. Downfall of India begun when Indian people became tolerant of the outsiders and peaceful on their own. Had we been a colonizer, the world history would have been different, Africa would be a prosperous continent, Australia would be a country of Australian natives, none would be a Hindu but still peace loving and many native tribes would still be alive around the globe.
