They imposed new taxes traditional industries declined which led to rise in unemployment also capitalists exploited the working class which led to growth of discontent among people. However there were few things that Indians learnt from the Britishers. Due to spread of western education new ideas such as justice, liberty, equality, democracy were introduced and also philosophies like rationalism, scientific attitude, humanity were accepted by Indians. There were many Indian and Western scholars who started study of Indian culture. After understanding that we have rich culture many Indians were awakened with the sense of identity. Also during this period when Indians were expanding and growing their knowledge there were English and vernacular newspapers which gave rise to social and political awakening to the masses.
