Prior to this, India had for centuries remained in a state of isolation although in very early times she had sent out cultural missions to the Other Asiatic countries. India really began to borrow from the West and assimilate new ideas on an extensive scale only after the British had taken up the direction of her educational policy. It is true that Western education at first exerted an unsettling influence on young men and led to errors in life and conduct.
