  1. To all the people wondering why Gandhi's starvation tactic worked; it's for the same reason why the British never killed him. If they really wanted to, it wouldn't have proven too hard to kill Gandhi. It's what would come after that's devastating. At that time in India, he had respect and popularity to such an extent that people literally stopped an entire freedom movement because he said no and began fasting. Now, imagine that all of these people (hundreds of millions) found out that Gandhi has died because of the British. Imagine the slaughter.

  2. It may sound bad but its actually in need.. India was just Mess everywhere. There were just too many ambitious people here( I mean you can find one ruler just with in 50 km, comeon) Instead of focusing on development (like in material science aka 'Rasayan sanshodan', (man there were early record that they even develop low grade bombs at that time), which was famous during morya or maths aka vadic ganita)
    they focus on wars and fighting. Even education was not available for every one. There was need of reform. So even if East india company came I am not too disappointed atleast we got lesson (maybe in hard ways) that, only when we are together then we can achieve something.

  3. The British colonialists literally milked India to almost it's death n cause that's wasn't enough soooo they thought…."why not leave it but made a situation where they'll have to be in a constant threat of war anyways 😀"

  4. For movie/ webseries lovers: I suggest "The forgotten Army" on Amazon Prime. It involves WW2, UK (with Indian & UK soldiers fighting the Japanese), Burma, Singapore, India's freedom movement. etc. It has English subtitles. The series really is a great one. Also, it isn't too lengthy. Do watch it if you wanna know more while getting entertained.

  5. British were powerful….I agree on that but I don't think they were that much powerful to rule on us for almost 200 years. The main ideology of "Divide and Rule" was their main agenda. We were just having bad times of our political instabilities.
    Considering their navy, our Dravidian kings were having a great navy in the south India.
    If you look at history of how british colonised India step by step….then you will see, in early years, they were themselves busy in fighting with the portuguese and mainly the french for industrial rights in India. Those anglo french wars very much boosted their confidence in the Indian subcontinent. Then India was having very powerful kingdoms like mughal dynasty in delhi…just look for how british were punished at those times by emperor jahangir….but after that the tables turned and after aurangzeb the mughal throne was not that much powerful but still powerful to give a hard hit to the british…During later mughals, their was a lot of political instability going on in the country. And british were waiting for the correct time to attack.
    The first battle which is the battle of plassey in 1757 was actually never fought…the then bengal nawab alivardi khan has passed away and he was succeded by a boy named Sirajudaullah who had lost his father at 15 and was currently in his early 20s. Lord clive the east India company general bribed his general mir jafar and the whole bengal army refused to fight on the orders of mir jafar. He was later executed by the british. The british now created a cash cow from whom they can have money and army support at any time.
    The breakup of the centralized Mughal empire by 1750, led to creation of a large number of independent kingdoms in Northern, Central and Western India, as also North-Western India (now Pakistan) and parts of Afghanistan (all provinces of the former Mughal empire). Each of them were in conflict with their neighbor. These kingdoms bought weapons from the British and French East India companies to aid their wars. Bengal was one such kingdom. The British and French supported whichever princes ensured their trading interest.
    The process of annexation of Indian states by the East India Company from

    1757 to 1857 brought forth some key aspects like the company rarely

    launched a direct military attack on an unknown territory…if you see the trend then british first develop trading relations with the kingdom then waited for a perfect time to annex the territory and used biased laws like 'subsidiary alliance' and 'doctrine of lapse'. Punjab was annexed in a similar way when our maharaja Ranjit Singh passed away.
    But British were really very clever…they were doing excellent geopolitics of that time.
    If you see after the revolt of 1857….Queen cleverly brought the Government of India Act 1858 and again ruled for the next 90 years. They were giving us dominion status during our freedom movement but glad that our leaders fought for "Purna Swaraj" (total independence).

    SO IN CONCLUSION, BRITISH RULE IN INDIA WAS JUST BASED ON BETRAYAL, OPPORTUNISTIC APPROACH AND USING THE ANNEXED PARTS AS INCOME SOURCE FOR THE ARMY HAVING NO RESPONSIBILITY ON THE STATE EXPENSES.

  6. A good Anglo-centric history for those wanting a jolly good Imperial lens on India is "The Men Who Ruled India," which the title alone should tell you what kind of "history" you are getting. Still, it covers the breadth of pre-EIC India up to 1947.

  7. Funny , how British created Congress to fool Indians & Indians believe it till date 😂😂
    Macaulay vowed to destroy Indian culture & history & he succeeded because he couldn't tolerate the rich heritage.

  8. Dont worry guys, they shall pay every bit of interests from their pockets for next 200 yr.. Consider brexit as the final nail on the coffin.. And now they wants to do business with us, little do they know, france is our biggest business partner in the indian ocean..
    PS~ get your basics of bargaining ASAP.

  9. I forget specifically where I heard this, but I distinctly remember hearing somewhere that Adam Smith absolutely loathed the East India Company. When even the “father of free-market capitalism” regards your business as an abomination, you know you done goofed.

  10. Was it when the crowned Vic officially dropped the PMC middlemen that the zero tolerance crackdown on daughter/wife/widow murders saw multiple hangings per day in every settlement with troops present?

  11. To all the people saying he’s biased in favor of the UK: a) he didn’t mention the positives of colonial rule like education reform and the political stability for the Raj (though this obviously doesn’t come close to excusing the horrible brutality of Brit rule) and b) just because he didn’t list every Brit atrocity doesn’t mean he’s condoning them. It’s called a summary video, it’s not meant to be exhaustive.

  12. As an Indian, this video has made me so sad and so angry to see the unfaltering exploitation of my land and my people, despite our fierce attempt to fight against it, which often goes unheard. There was no mention of Chahhtrapati Shivaji, or Bajirao Peshwa, or Jhansi ki Rani in this video. No mention of Jaliyon Wala Bhag, or Sardar Vallabhai Patel, or Subhash Chandra Bose.

    This video just seems to be biased in the point of view of Great Britain and the Mughals. I would expect a less feeble attempt from the this channel to attempt at impartiality.

    Disappointed.
