Gandhi believed that the colonial education filled Indians with the inferiority complex. It was because they were made to believe in the greatness and superiority of the western education. This destroyed their pride in their own culture. After receiving western education, Indians gradually begin to admire the British rule forgetting their own glorious culture and civilisation. Thus, he believed that English education had enslaved Indians. Gandhi wanted Indians to receive education which aims at recovering their pride, dignity and self-respect.
