The man whom was in his mid 50 's had poor features with grey facial hair that was continually growing, his face looked tired and wrinkled, and his clothing was rags, wearing the same attire every day, was one of the tens and thousands living in the poor country. He did have a family which included 9 brothers and sisters whom most of them deceased because of the deadly virus gone around the slum. In the slum any disease could develop.

The man intently moved closer to the scene and as he moved closer with each step he noticed one thing; he thought he saw his daughter. His skinny, weak legs forced him into a powerful jog and then a full run towards the electrocuted fence because his mind told him otherwise. He ran as fast as he could gasping for breath but he knew this was his daughter, his mission. The man immediately felt a strange tingling starting from his fingers to spreading through his body. He let out a gasp. As he slowly fell to the ground with his weak hands, he shakingly picked up his locket and looked at his daughters face for the last time as the sun set

- Further proof of Britain’s exploitative, yet, apathetic relationship with India and its subsequent negative influences can be found in the writings of a variety of Indian nationalists who migrated around the globe after fleeing persecution in British India for their revolutionary messages and who then became vocal Indian nationalists with popular global organizations and publications.6 Most significantly these accounts express issues of British India withholding, storing, and even dumping, edible food in 1943, a year of weak crop production and famine, claiming it unfit for consumption and, subsequently, causing the deaths of millions of Bengali’s due to government greed and negligence.7 Bri...
