Forgot to add that one thing that sucks about the british other than their food and bad teeth is that they drive on the wrong side of the wrong and that transferred to India. It makes driving there that much worse.

I grew up in India in the '60s and '70s and from my observation (I am white) most people didn't seem to have strong feelings toward the British one way or another. They respected the UK some, not a lot, and were also very happy to have the English gone--who wants to be colonialized, anyway? A very few people had stronger feelings than that, but most didn't seem to care much about the UK one way or the other.

The English language didn't have a whole lot of presence until a couple decades ago. When I was growing up there, my parents sent me a thousand miles away so that I could go to an English medium school (Woodstock School). Now it's the standard. Just saying that India moved itself towards the English language, long after independence, more than the British did.
