Has the Quit India Movement Been Relaunched?

1942 saw the launch of the Quit India movement, in which Indians said to the Englishmen "Angrez, Bharat Chhodo". No one told me that the movement has been relaunched, because nothing else can explain the mass exodus of Englishmen. Those who aren't going back are becoming casualties in India.

Or maybe the English cricket team is enacting the Agatha Christie play And There Were None. Maybe tomorrow Mohinder Amarnath will appear on TV singing 'Gumnaam hai koiiiiiii'.
