This was the case for British colonialism in India. As imperialism spread, the colonizer and the colony viewed imperialism differently.
The British were in India because there were 300 million people there so they would have people to work for less money. India was full of raw materials like tea and cotton, the British wanted those materials to sell and make new things.

The government was almost completely run by Englishmen and the army/police force was used to control the Indians, they were hurting the environment of India and they were negatively impacting the Indians with the trade system they created, causing many famines leading to death upon millions those who survived were left illiterate.

Though India reportedly had the world’s largest economy during the years 1 AD and 1000 AD , due to the vagaries of history, India’s economy had plunged during British rule. Though industrialisation proceeded rapidly in Britain, the British had different policies for the regions under its rule. However the economic impact of British imperialism in India is still being debated. On the one hand, the British established a good network of railways, laid out a telegraph system for communication and established a legal system.

In response British killed 100,000 (debated to be up to 1,000,000)
Introduction Historically international development was conceived by US both as a strategic (geopolitical, foreign policy) project and as an objective process of economic progress. Arguably international cooperation for international development, in its various forms, was designed as a means of ensuring that post-colonial states in their pursuit of national development would not succumb to the lure of communism and fall prey to the model presented by the USSR. Hence international development can be perceived not only as a model and strategy for reviving the economic growth but to also provide conditions of political stability for the neoliberal world order and a local benign or human face to imperialism.
