In 1835, Lord Macaulay, in his ‘Minute on Education’ wrote: We have to educate a people who cannot at present, be educated by means of their mother tongue. We must teach them some foreign language...Thus was born in Macaulay’s words: a class of persons Indian in blood and colour, but English in taste, in opinions, in morals and in intellect. And thus I was formed, wearing Macaulay motley, my skin brown, my mind English pale” (KWT 181-82).
