JGD Bawa.I think this is a very good example of opposite values being complementary. The fanatic attempt of Macaulay to subjugate India to the British Rule through linguistic & cultural indoctrination also resulted in the Best of India-it’s Spirituality, being exported & ultimately feted,in the Western world. Due to Macaulay, Yogis like Vivekananda, Yogananda, Aurobindo, Mahesh Yogi etc could go to the West & communicate their Knowledge effectively. In fact if you read the novel ‘Ananda Math’ by Bankim Chandra, you will find in it a prophecy by the author at the end of the book that Indians will regain their ancient glory through learning the English language & science & realizing the greatness of their own civilization in the process.
