limey imperialists starved to death 30 million people in india, mostly in the deccan (mysore and madras) in the el nino years of 1877-1879.
how appropriate that 2009 is another el nino year.
if you read mike davis' "late victorian holocausts", you will never look the same at limeys. this was the most barbaric of all colonial regimes. eg. calories supplied in jewish death camps to inmates was greater than what was given to famine victims in india. this was called the 'temple ration' after a nazi named 'richard temple'.
oh, and we exported large amounts of grain to the uk while 30 million people were starving to death.
