Churchill's legacy leaves Indians questioning his hero status

There's no doubt Churchill is regarded as a hero to many, in fact that's the one of the terms I may have used to describe him if you had asked me just a year ago... None of the realities of Britain's colonial past are taught in schools so its little wonder that so many look up to people who fought a good fight. So good in fact it's been used to hide their true colours.

Every time I learn more about Churchill and the Empire, it's just another thing I need to be sure that my kids are made aware of. I mean, even the famous 'Blitz Spirit' is fake, and these are the realities we should be learning about because how else are we supposed to better ourselves?
