    The part where you say India never had a sizable navy or captured other countries is not factually correct the Chola dynasty spread to what is modern day Vietnam, Cambodia, Srilanka, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia at it's zenith...Also there is archeological evidence that The Tamil speaking dynasties had trade relations with the Roman empire, there are excerpts from classical Tamil literature that Yavana(Roman) soldiers guarded Tamil king's court rooms...

    What a ghastly, superficial video fit only for Kindergarten children!. Trust the Americans to ignore all history and culture, if there is no Jurassic Age with dinosaurs in it. India had over half a dozen highly centralised Empires, some bigger in extent than the Indian Empire of the British colonials. The first one was the so-called Indus Valley Civilization. Then came the great Mauryan Empire still the benchmark of all subsequent Empires. This was followed by the Asokas Empire. All these Empires were before Christ was born. Then after the advent of Islam came the Empire of the Khaljis, the Tughlaqs and the Lodhis. South India had its own history and Empires. The Chola Empire stretched all the way from Angkor Wat in Cambodia to Thanjavur, the capital in South India and this Empire covered all of Southeast Asia. It was based on a powerful navy controlled by the Chola Empire. And finally came the Golden Age of the Mughal Empire. The Mughal Empire ended in 1862. This video talks only of British colonisation of India, a mere 90 years, which ended in 1947 and was a tiny blip in India's long 5000-year history. The Americas, being country cousins of the British repeat parrot-like whatever is fed to them about India by the BBC. Time to grow up! Both Afghanistan and Pakistan are integral parts of the Indian continent. Both countries are artificial and created by the departing British to create a civil war in India and stump its chances of becoming a superpower. It is only a matter of time before all South Asia will become an economic union rather like the EU. The beginning has been made by SAARC or South Asian nations community. India will achieve its destiny and become one of the world's superpowers in the next 10 years. India is already armed with ICBMs and its GDP is number three in the world after America and China. It has already overtaken Japan and UK. Its annual growth of average 8% will propel it to number two position and by 2030 it will overtake America. It has to be remembered that while India is growing rapidly the other powers are in decline. Both these factors will make India into a superpower sooner than you think. Unlike China, India's rise is quiet and steady. It is true in the service sector, the so-called cyber coolies contribute a significant part of the GDP now. This video concentrates only on this tiny sector but it is not vital to the India Story. That is only a part of the story. India's fundamentals are very strong and its economy is founded on a strong industrial and agricultural base. it has a huge untapped market of 1 billion plus and the economy is largely self-reliant, not export based like China or America. Thsi makes it immune to outside shocks. If there are no wars and no ecological collapse in the world, then there is no stopping India or Indians.

    India is nasty as said by most westerners. Overpopulated, shit on street, poverty, slums everywhere. Still I believe India is better than most because India is self sufficient and not dependent on any county(including US, Russia and China). We don't give a fuck. Fuck sansactions. We don't care. We have problems that are too complicated and may need a century to get solved. We are not jealous of any country's growth either. Look at our films, we don't even bother about international viewers. Our population is our strength. Our filmmakers don't even think much about marketing their films outside as they make huge profits here only. Big produces like China, US sees India as a market. Come on business need consumers which we are. Like us, love us or hate us. We don't care. You need us more than we need you. That's the power we have. Funny enough...most hate monger westerners don't realise their brother make Indian content to get views and in turn make money from TVclip ad sense.😂
    So we indirectly provide you the money.

  • VoiceForJustice AndProportionalResponse

    The concept of a nation-state is a new one - so india clearly wasn't a country in the modern sense. However, to say that there was no concept of india is misleading. My opinion is that there was in the geographic sense in the same way these concepts existed in other parts of the world at roughly the time frame at which britain came into india. During that time, India was united and administrated under Mughal rule almost completely by the time of Aurangzeb (barring the southern most tip). They also had a name for the land, hindustan. Prior to that numerous other empires also united india (e.g. mauryans, guptas). Its misleading to say that the concept of india came into being only with the British, in my opinion.

    Whatever situation of India is today because of the Party which ruled India after Independence and divided it into multiple religion and casteism. Otherwise India would be much ahead of China. Now India started its development. But the same party doesn't want India to be Developed Country. And wants its people to fight with each on basis of religion and caste. See the current affairs of country.

    India is destined to fail because it has not fully decolonized. The history thought in schools is the Europeans’ view of the ‘other’. So Indians end up growing up as self-loathers. There is also a demographic siege by the increasing birth rate of Muslims, who identify with the Arab world than with India. Then there is Christian proselytization funded by the west, which has a destabilizing effect with neophyte Christians owing allegiance to the Vatican and to Churches in the US rather than ‘heathen’ Hindoo India. With a fractured sense of identity, any nation is doomed to fail.

      Congratulations. You missed the entire point in your "educational" spiel. Protip: don't assume you're talking to idiots. I know all of the above. And yet, the fact remains that the modern nation of India is united by nothing but a manufactured uber-nationalism and exaggerated patriotism. Why? Because there is literally nothing else that could possibly unite the disparate cultures and histories contained within it. It has all of the hallmarks of post-colonial gift-states. I suggest you step back and take a look at history (including that of the rest of the world) without taking it too personally. And please stop treating people like ignorant fools without knowing anything about them or their depth of knowledge.

      In fact let me educate you as I am local Indian
      and we know know what our forefathers told us.
      You outsiders want to teach us?
      Who do you think you are?

      You want to believe western propaganda?
      Then you want to teach people on the land of India?
      Do I know more than you about your Lands?

      Do not swallow western propaganda and come to tell us.
      When the British came they sided with some Indian kings against others.

      Then the Indian king(maharajah) requested assistance and British sent some troops.

      Their numbers are insignificant.
      All the foot soldiers were Indians.

      What I am biased?
      You foreigner know better than local Indian?
      You know next to nothing on India.

      Now the western propaganda is fashionable for foreigners

      and they have temerity to talk about India and on matters they know notthing

      Yes just like Iraq had WMD and then nothing found.

      It is only because Indians themselves invited the British troopers
      that they came and sided with some Indian rulers.
      Initially only British traders came through Bay of Bengal.

      Let me tell you that if foreigners came to India and did not have
      Indian collaboration, they be smashed to pieces.

      You do not know the nature and prowess of Indian people and dense forests etcetc which is literary unsurmountable.

      The foreigners themselves know this whilst in India.

      Once India realised that their hospitality was taken for granted they told the Brits to leave.

      They left in great fear and in a big hurry.

      What to admit?
      Your western propaganda?

      Just like it 'international agreed' standards that Iraq had WMD.

      In fact British desperately begged India to help them and Indians
      with their generous heart could not refuse.

      Then of course Indians hammered the Europeans in WW1 and WW2 theatres in Europe, North Afica, Middle East etc.

      During WW1 in which Indian regiments got the most Victoria crosses,
      our forefathers said that when the Europeans saw Indian soldiers, they immediately went running.



      It was the great Indian soldiers who had stopped the German advance at Ypres in the Autumn of 1914 while the British were still recruiting/ training their own forces.


      Intense hand to hand engagements at Neuve Chappelle, at Gallipoli,
      and fought in Mesopotamia against the Ottoman Empire, Germany's ally.

      The Germans were taken aback by the ferocity with which the Indians fought. One enemy soldier, who had witnessed Sikh troops in hand-to-hand combat at Neuve Chapelle in 1915, wrote: “At first we spoke of them with contempt. Today we look on them in a different light …. In no time they were in our trenches and truly these brown enemies are not to be despised. With butt ends, bayonets, swords and daggers we fought each other and we had bitter hard work.”


      That is why in WW2, Hitler also had India regiments in German army.

      The Indians had also terrorized German tank divisions in Africa, fought the Japanese in Burma, took part in the invasion of Italy, and played a significant part in battles in the Middle East. The Indian Engineers were a part of every division in the army.

      The Battle of Kohima and Imphal was the bloodiest of World War II in India, and it cost Japan much of its best army in Burma.“And it gave Indian soldiers a belief in their own martial ability and showed that they could fight as well or better than anyone else.” “Military historians refer to it as one of the fiercest battles in world history.”

      Indian troops fought with the Expeditionary Force in France in 1940, including the withdrawal at Dunkirk, in the North African desert, in Greece, in Abyssinia, in Eritrea, in Mesopotamia, in Italy , jungles of Malaya, Burma, Hong Kong and Singapore.


      The first actual victories won by the British Army in the war were in North Africa in late 1940 (Dunkirk was not a victory in real terms) were when Lord Wavell repulsed the Italians with a largely Indian force of about 20,000 troops

      Dont come and tell local Indians what e know from our forefathers

      You can swallow western propagaganda but we know our mighty land.

      Go and read those Chinese travellers accounts on India thousands
      of years ago what Indian people are the land that gave kungfu and
      buddhism to China.
