GOD BLESS ....SIR/MAMANAV William Sleeman had it been the !@#%%^ congress stuff ....till date we would have been living in the S(H)AME ... I think he was instrumental in removal of "Pindaris ' too ?!
Sleeman was a liar and a propagandist, like the rest of his ilk. Their only redeeming quality was their martial skill- which is, in itself- ridiculous- since their strength was nothing but an effect of their opponents' weakness.
How can we talk of thugs in past tense ? There are more of them now
