United Kingdom Winston Churchill on Indian independence

Lately whats been going round on Facebook is a picture with the following

"Power will go to rascals, rogues, freebooters. . . .
All leaders will be of low caliber & men of straw. . .
They'll have sweet tongues & silly hearts. . .
They will fight amongst themselves for power & the two countries will be
lost in political squabbles. . . .
A day would come when even air & water will be taxed.

He wrote this 64 years ago. . .
Incredibly we've worked very hard to prove him right. . . "

Apparently these words were uttered by Winston Churchill on the topic of
granting India independence.
And if you read the news of India its not surprising to find an article
about so and so scam or corruption involving major political figures.

So my question is..Did Winston Churchill really say the above words?
