Profiles in hegemony - II

Updated news on the Mahatma Gandhi memorabilia auction taking place today.

An interesting comment I noticed in the same article...

It is really outrageous that British who looted off the items from the countries that they so brutally occupied are still able to make money from this. The gall is that these sellers try to blackmail Asian countries by giving ultimatums - either improve the health care for poor, improve human rights or lose the items. Imagine if the tables were turned and items from Buckingham Palace or White house were being auctioned in India and China and these countries asking US and England to improve the race relations or else..
My sentiments too...

Part I here.

Yes, i agree with you on this, they donot have any right selling Indian property on foreign land.
