                      A fine example of how the British (somehow intentionally) left messes everywhere as then cleaned up what's left of their colonial empire.

                                  India before the Mughal and British didn't exist, it was a list of smaller countries

                                  Thanks to Mughal who united all these states currently known as India

                                  Mughal India was richest in the world

                                  British India was left the poorest in the world

                                        Very poor knowledge of subject matter !!
                                        1) Railways and roads were not build to integrate Nation but to allow british goods, build in british industries to reach and replace indigenous products in far flung areas
                                        2) Yes there were fragmented states all over , but the concept of whole territory being a Single nation existed even before the CE and the Indian Nation was called "Bharatvarsha"
                                        3) India had a strong navy till 10-11th centuries and naval expeditions by Chola Kings (Southern Indian Kingdom) were as far as China, Indonesia Cambodia, Malaysia. Even till the Britishers arrived Indian had some big Ship building centers in Surat and Bengal. These were eventually destroyed by britishers by giving british made ships monopoly over trade routes from and to India.
                                        4) India did had relations with China over its history with some ex being Silk Route from China through India to middle and central Asia, and propagation of Buddhism from India to China, propagation of Cotton from India to China and even to Japan , and propagation of Silk from China to India.

                                        Dude next time make a video after doing some research !

                                        British presence is the reason why Indian economy is growing fast today 😂😂 what the hell this motherfucker is saying.
                                        India's share of the world economy went from 24.4% in 1700 to 4.2 in 1950.infact Britain's thrive was premised on the very loot and destruction in India.how funny it is to exploit, loot, torture, and kill people for years and then celebrate they are growing faster after it 😂 and according to this motherfucker English has brought development..but Chinese do not speak English so according to his logic china must not be developed as it is now. And India is not federation but Union of States. chutiya maderchod😂.I had just subscribed u , and I have just unsubscribed u asshole

                                          he didn't say that, he even said the British did a lot of damage to the economy but because of the english language literacy western countries are outsourcing jobs to India because Indians learned English from the British

                                        India won't fail. It has FAR too many intelligent people and is too use to navigating chaos to do so. Whether it can sustain and reach its intended goals is another issue.


                                        And that said, I disagree that India's problems are purely or largely Geographical.


                                        Rather :


                                        1) China also had massive rural population at same start point in the 1980s( If not more). The reason China has been able to get ahead is not just cheap labour which India and other nations can provide but LOGISTICS and INFRASTRUCTURE. It can get goods to market quickly and efficiently. Contrast India's roads and railways (improving but not at similar pace)


                                        2) Partially this is due to India's large democracy. Partially bc India has also inherited and propogated enthusiastically British Colonial Bureaucracy.


                                        Its political system (as oppose to China ...itself having other faults) means things do not get done as quickly and are often log jammed. See infrastructure. This is more so a cultural thing than any geographical dictate.


                                        3) India's education lags not bc of rural /urban divide but other factors including less equality for women (as oppose to China...unless you are a Ghandi) and of course the Hindhu cultural baggage of the caste system.


                                        But things are slowly changing for the good here.


                                        None of these issues are weighted down by Geography.


                                        4) One other thing is the border with Pakistan. I would think the Thar dessert is as much a benefit to Indian defense as the populated area on the Pakistani side is a risk to Pakistan.


                                        More so again the issue of getting on with each other is again cultural (and irrational) rather than any geographical dictate. This is again due to Indian politics (and Pakistan) where Nationalist like to stoke the fear of the other side to gain power.


                                        Indian oceans are as much an advantage for the sub continent as it is any impediment. Indian traders use to exchange knowledge with the Arab world in the golden age (7th and 8th century) with the monsoons as much as they did with South East Asia (see Hindhu temples in Vietnam, Indonesia and Buddhism)


                                        5) And as much as the Himalayas are an impediment, it did not stop Chinese monks from crossing over before Christ to bring Buddhist text to East Asia or indeed an Indian monk to make positive impact with the Shaolin Temple.


                                        Again there is no issue with linking China and India (Roads on the Chinese side and rail all already highly developed)


                                        The issue is rather again cultural. Indians love a good bargain and they are holding back on territorial settlements for more favourable outcomes in the future.

                                            My quibble with Wendover: all the vids focus on war/conflict/strife. The graphic and production quality is impressive but the endless "if so-and-so launches a Thing, then geography dictates that the other tribe will likely launch their Thing." Every single Wendover vid devolves into war-games theory.

                                                "India has forgiven, but it should not be forgotten"

                                                Before the arrival of British, India had a world GDP share of 23%. By the time they left, it was down to 4%.
                                                The 200 years rule of British has changed the course and status of Indian history of being the richest to the poorest country when Britishers left.

                                                It will take India a painstaking hundreds of years to recover from the economic losses incurred.

                                                So, it can't be said that British ruled only for a few period.

They helped us in education and that's why our literacy level in 1947 when britishers left was less than even 10% ... India , the country which invented zero, surgery and countless other mathematical, Scientific discoveries was left in shambles during british !!!

                                                      There is an inherent assumption in this video that speaking English is a sign of being literate and Indians have thus been benefited this way by the British. Those are preacarious statements, and the research is shallow.
