Before the rule of the British & Mughals, Ayurveda, or herbal therapy was the only medicinal therapy that existed. At that time there were no antibiotics, no steroids, no injections, no tonics, and no vitamins, still, people were enjoying disease-free life up to 100 yrs. One should go detail into about this secret. Good eating habits, behavior, climate, food, and spirituality were some of the factors responsible for their longevity.
But as time changed, the British ruled India and cultivated their western culture. We, people, forgot the very essence of our golden treasure and started believing that everything that is western and English is good and superior to us. Lord Macaulay’s address to the British Parliament on 2nd Feb 1835 confirms this fact.
“I have traveled 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 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 self-esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.”
