(1845 –1914) also known as Lord Minto was a British nobleman and politician. He was appointed Viceroy and Governor-General of India in 1905 and retired in 1910. In this, he followed in the footsteps of his great-grandfather, the first Lord Minto. When John Morley as Secretary of State for India wrote to Minto arguing that “Reforms may not save the Raj, but if they don’t, nothing else will”, Minto replied: …when you say that “if reforms do not save the Raj nothing else will” I am afraid I must utterly disagree. The Raj will not disappear in India as long as the British race remains what it is, because we shall fight for the Raj as hard as we have ever fought, if it comes to fighting, and we shall win as we have always won.
