Lord Curzon
•The time of his governorship (1899-1905), was the formative phase of Indian national movement
He looked at Indians with contempt and insulted and injured their feelings. He described Bengalis as cowards, windbags, impracticable talkers and mere frothy patriots. [He even refused to meet to president of Indian national congress]
•The biggest blunder he committed was the partition of Bengal. Although it was a political masterstroke to break growing Indian nationalism among Bengalis, it proved disastrous for British in longer term
•he instituted in 1902, a Universities Commission[ & the Indian Universities Act of 1904, which brought all the universities in India under the control of the government]
