The myth that British people were of superior race and that Indians were of inferior race was one of the theories that was put to practice to rule us. That being said, there seems to be some amount of truth in that assertion.
States in Africa, Americas, Asia et al where *superior race* left long time ago are in doldrums today. To quote, Sudan, Somalia, Uganda, Bolivia, Uruguay and yada yada are merely subsisting, not existing. The development of Aborigines/Maoris in Oceania is due to superior race's intervention. Amerindians would have still been howling and hunting game sports with fancy headgears if not for superior race. Their lives have changed due to presence of superior race among them. Etc.
The above being the context,
1. Is this superior race theory just a myth or it has some perceptible value?
2. What is the all pervasive definition of development?
