Abstract

Much before Dadabhai Naoroji wrote his famous work attributing India's abysmal poverty to sustained drain of its wealth to Britain and even decades before the Indian National Congress placed it on its agenda for change, a small band of Maharashtrian intellectuals, wrote several hard-hitting articles in the English and the Marathi language press all through the decade of the 1840s that were harshly critical of British government policies that had led to India's impoverishment. But their tirade was equally sharp against age-old Indian traditions and social evils like the caste system that had abetted in India's long slide towards servitude.
