There is a viral photograph and a passage about Lord Macaulay's address in the British Parliament about India.
"I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage and therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their selfesteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation". - Lord Macaulay's address to the British Parliament 2nd February 1835
According to this quote, Macaulay wanted to propose an education system in India which focuses on foreign culture and English, destroying ancient Indian culture in the process.
What did Macaulay speak in the parliament while introducing the English Education Act of 1835? Did he talk about introducing English in India so that people will forget their own culture?
