      1. Split is amazing name for a city because it really looks like a palace. Our history and language is beyond English language and we were never under them, thank God! 😀


      2. We were under them for far too long, Oh my god !! Even now distorted history is,taught in britain, lying about their colonial past. Thanks god , india was far too big for them to completely destroy like did to Maya and Incas in americas. We have regain a bit, but still too far away from pre colonial glory.

      3. Yes, it’s horrible when someone comes to your country, like your house, and then takes over. Let’s hope that people will learn form history not just follow what their war-hungry empty headed leaders say. 🙂


      4. Sadly, we have so many war hungry leaders working under pressure of defense manufacturers. Patriotism has lost it sheen in modern nations running after GDP numbers. Every war has lot of economics involved in it rather than patriotism, economic growth is the new definition of patriotism, humanism, sanity etc.Lets see where this new religion takes us, any guess ? Dark ages 🙂
