Dadabhai Naoroji speech called "The Knife of Sugar."
He says, "The British rule has been-- morally, a great blessing; politically, peace and order on one hand, blunders on the other; materially, impoverishment, relieved as far as the railroad and other loans go. The Indian natives call the British system 'Sakar ki Churi,' the knife of sugar. That is to say, there is no oppression, it is all smooth and sweet, but it is the knife, notwithstanding."
