Gandhi was sent to Britain to study law because his parents were able to afford it. In 1915 Gandhi returned to India and joined the Indian National Congress (INC), where he was introduced to multiple problems faced by Indians. The INC sought more power for the Indian people. However, it always attempted to achieve this objective by quiet discussion rather than public protest. One of the key leaders of the INC was a man named Gopal Krishna Gokhale, known for his restraint and moderation.
Let me tell you a story. There was once a boy who was born in Moscow within the Soviet Union to Russian Jewish parents. The father, a mathematician, couldn’t pursue the career he wanted there. In 1977, his father came back from a mathematics conference in Poland. At that conference, he was able to interact freely with his fellow colleagues from the United States, France, England and Germany.
After Rayona and Christine arrive to Ida’s house, Christine leaves Rayona in Ida’s care. Rayona ends up living with and describes how Ida would feel about her departure, “Aunt Ida is a mystery to me. She seems to take everything as it comes, but it’s all a burden. I tell myself she won’t miss me, she won’t care that I left the way I did.” (85). Rayona feels that Ida does not care about her well-being and prefers to not have the responsibility of watching over her.
It was not fair to the Indians that they had no power to rule themselves. During imperialism, India’s economy was forced for its development to stop, and jobs were lost. “... many crafts were broken. Thus the economic development was stopped and the growth of the new industry was prevented…”(Document 6). India’s economy was not doing well during imperialism.
Dede, the only sister who survived insists that she would have joined her sisters but she couldn’t because of her husband “Even so that night, her ears still ringing from Jaimito’s shout, Dedé had been ready to risk her life.

In the twilight of the 19th century and at the dawn of the twentieth, British expatriate businesses enjoyed great success. India fulfilled its role in the imperial economy primarily as a main customer of British products. British trading companies, located primarily in the Calcutta area, dominated the external trading sector. As B.R. Tomlinson explains, India's export trade was composed of mainly agrarian produces like raw cotton, raw jute, rice, tea, oilseeds, and wheat, which were sold to North America, Europe, and Britain.
It was in charge for 100 years, then in 1857 the Sepoy rebellion began. That’s when the British government came in, and took India over for themselves. Dr Lalvani claims that this was the start of the modernization of India, and that imperialism helped boost it to the magnificent country it is today. The Brits did leave behind an efficient government -- but not before they ruined the soil with cash crops and deforestation, led India to many famines, and left their mark all over the country in the form of train tracks. Today, both India and Britain are affected by the imperialism in India, and those scars can still be seen today, and serve as a reminder of the good and bad done during that
Often, India is overlooked when mentioning foreign influences within Indonesia’s rich culture. However, it was actually one of the most influential countries to ever come to the nation.

The presence left from this glorious Hindu-Buddhist era has never left Indonesia, forever altering the many areas of the nation’s culture.
