Check from 7:11 to 7:30. It shows how the knowledge is plagiarized and call original knowledge society primitive.

Enough people here think that it is ok.

What an odd post.

India kept having famines until the green revolution in the 50s and 60s which was when we shared chemical fertilizers and agro chemicals with them.


That is historically wrong. India started having famines after the british came to India.

That's complete rubbish. A trick of "White Man Bad" is to take advantage that the rulers in Pre-British India did not have the fascination for bureaucratic recrods or interest in the lives of peasant scum, so did not keep official records. However, from old journals and historical diaries, there were famines all over India, some of which killed millions, in a country with a fraction of the population it had today.

Because India was factionalized into small states during most of the pre-British era, there was no central authority to collect information anyway.

We do know that several famines were ignored by Mughal Sultans.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Famine_in_India#Ancient,_medieval_and_pre-colonial_India

A useful collection of many famines before the Raj with a mix of Indian and non-Indian PRIMARY sources, many famines have multiple sources:

"By order of the true Channa-Basava-Raja-Deva of the ancient place of the great high priest of the Umattur upparige-simhasana, Kala-Mallikarjuna-Deva and parupatyagara Kempina-Liugan-Odeyar-Deva, uniting, had the well repaired. At that time, all grains sold at 7 mana for 1 hana, and men ate men: then they did this."

Introduction pp27-28: "As a mana is half a ser (seer) or measure, and a hana equal to 4 annas 8 pies, the price of grain was apparently 12 seers for the rupee in modern currency; but the different value of money [so many] years ago, and the different capacity of seer measures, must be taken into consideration."

Now that is a intelligent comment without facts. They kept starving because they wanted to follow the russia model of communism after independence. Once that prime minister was dead then they started using capitalist model and now have more grains to export.

Srivastava, Ashirbadi Lal "Akbar The Great" (Vol 1, 1962)
p169: "When the military campaign was making a successful progress in the eastern provinces, Gujarat in the west was, in 1574-1575, in the throes of a dreadful famine and epidemic, the like of which had not been seen or heard in living memory. Both lasted for five to six months. The famine was not caused by drought or the failure of occasional rains, but was due to destruction wrought by prolonged wars and rebellions, constant marching and counter marching of troops, to the killings of men on a large scale, and the break-down of administrative machinery and the economic system. The historian Muhammad Arif Qandhari rightly observes that the plague and famine occurred not only on account of the contamination of water and air but also because of the misrule and oppression of the Afghans, the Abyssinians and the Mirzas. The epidemic, which was most probably plague, preceded the famine. The calamity was wide spread and covered the whole of Gujarat, and a large number of inhabitants of all grades left the province. The mortality was so high that on an average one hundred cart loads of dead bodies were every day taken out for burial from the city of Ahmedabad alone, and it was impossible to find for them graves and grave cloths. They were interred in pits with earth thrown over them. The severity was equally felt in the towns and districts of Broach, Pattan and Baroda, and in fact in the whole of Gujarat. On account of scarcity the price of maize (jowar), a coarse grain, rose to 120 brass tankas (equivalent to six rupees) for a maund. Grass and fodder for horses and other animals were not available, and these had to be fed on the bark of trees.
There is nothing on record to show that the government undertook any relief measures. Abul Fazl, the court historian, is silent on the calamity. Had Akbar ordered any kind of relief, he must certainly not have missed the opportunity of praising his royal patron on that account."

Nizamu-d Din Ahmad (trans. H.M. Elliot) "Tabakat-i Akbari" (in "The History of India, as Told By Its Own Historians" vol. 5, 1873)
p384: [events of the 19th year of Akbar's reign (1574-5 CE)] "In this year a great pestilence (waba) and famine occurred in Gujarat, and lasted for nearly six months. From the severity of these calamities, the inhabitants, rich and poor, fled the country, and were scattered abroad. For all this, grain rose to the price of 120 tankas per man [Footnote: "Jawdri rose to the price of 120 black tankas per man."- Badauni, vol. II, p. 186], and horses and cows had to feed upon the bark of trees."

One more time, when will this guy realize that there was a United States of the Ancient World. It's named was not Uncle Sam but Uncle Cyrus.

So if you want to say that foreigners stole your knowledge base and distributed it around the globe, then start with the year 559 BC.

https://www.ancient.eu/Achaemenid_Empire



Notice something above, all corners of the known ancient world are connected, the Numidian, the Ethiopian, the Greek side, the Soviet/Russian Steppic Side, China, and yes, India at Ghandhara.

And now, you can then blame your real enemies and those were the Muslims, who terrorized those regions, after the fall of Persia (650 AD), up until the Moghul invasion where Timur's (the 2nd Sword of Islam or perhaps the 3rd or 4th, since ppl lose count of stupid Mullah/Barbarian warlords) lineage attacked India, starting with Babur, and controlled it up until the British Raj.

If the British got so fat and rich, and that prosperity largely due to controlling Indian Pepper, Tea, and Cotton: Why isn't India after independence, and without having to transfer the wealth from these crops to London, poorer than the UK?

To be fair, Mountbatten relinquished the Viceroy for the Nehru dynasty. The one which ended with both assassinations of Indira Gandhi and her successor son.

And yes, she was one of the worse PMs for a non-communist, free, modern society running it like a banana republic.

So in defense of the OP but at the same time, being real, I'd say that India's true independence was in 1991 and so it's a nascent republic.

Yes, also Congress Party gave themselves hugeass loans for agraculture and industry, then defaulted on them and stuck the default on the state.

They also used the free loan to buy up lots of independent farmland.

how about formulating a strategy so that India can became a super economy, not too distinct from let's say a South Korea, within the next generation, without blaming the modern west (see Cold War NATO members), the ancient (see Cyrus the Great) west, the Moghuls (see medieval barbarians), and anyone else, who may have stolen the treasuries of India's past?

Ok, what about the Malay-Malaysians, as oppose to the Indian or Chinese ones? How come they don't say that their civilization was wiped out by the British? How come the Bahrain-Bahrainians (I guess you can say an Arab-Persian ethnic mix) also seem to be doing well in a relatively freer Arab nation than most of their neighbors, esp the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, run by the Sharia death squad? These are the former British colonies which flank India on both sides.

And to the a lesser extent but in a similar vein, Egypt, Kenya, and Nigeria?

In 1956, Egypt took back the Suez Canal and as a result, aside from Hong Kong, most British colonies achieved independence in the proceeding decade & half because for the most part, they were spent and done. Bahrain was the last major country to leave and that was in '72.

You see, the rest of the former British Empire has moved on. You on the other hand, have to accept that the Nehru line, yes, Nehru-Indira, made it so your country never truly achieved independence til 1991. And thus, while the world sees the date 1947, in reality, that was simply the Mountbatten to Nehru hand off.

India had lost out on a period of time where other countries rediscovered their prior identities and decided, not to simply blame Britain for their internal issues. Today, those are the problems of Nigerians, Bahrainians, Malaysians, etc.

If I recall, corporate America throughout the 90s and 00s, threw tons of cash at South India to build its own Silicon Valley. What so-called reigning Global Empire does that? That's like ancient Rome, throwing ships full of gold, along with aqueduct and military tech, so that the Egyptians would send Cleopatra packing without even having to send in a garrison. I don't think Augustus would have been so generous.

How come it hasn't become the world's Silicon Valley? There should be software houses from Manipur, to Kashmir, to Punjab, to Maharashtra, and Kerala making it the world's greatest producer of not only software but all services around information processing. There shouldn't even be an American Silicon Valley anymore given India's population size.

Although controversial, perhaps Scythian expansion into NW India and Pakistan led to development of Vedic works.

West Germany was bombed to smithereens and didn't have pepper, cinnamon, cotton, opium, or tea. AND was faced with a massive superpower army at it's border.

They did just fine and dandy.

Japan and South Korea were also devastated by war. China had both a Japanese invasion AND a Civil war before, during, and after that.

The thing is that really, only Iranians (with present day border) call themselves Persians. In reality, the areas just on the border of the Arabic Caliphate douchebag's empire, which were a part of Imperial Russia, have Persians who look a lot more like the original ones from prior Islamic times.



The above pretty much, passes for Slavic Russian easily.

And in terms of present day Russia, itself, here's Ossetia, an Orthodox Christian majority Persian subnationality within Russian ...

Look, I don't want to be too much of a jerk but here's my conclusion.

Bahrain achieved independence in '72 and that was the last major British Colony and thus, earmarks the end of the what was once, a massive overseas empire spanning every time zone.

India, however, didn't achieve the above "level" until '91, with the death of Rajiv Gandhi (Indira's son, not related to the Mahatma) and the end of the Nehru line.

That's two generations of not having gotten rid of the Viceroy, foreign or domestic. The year 1947 was not legitimate, making Mohandas Gandhi's work insignificant against the actual events of history.

The world went through massive changes between '47 and '91 while India was still finding its way around.

Today, it's a new century and I'm hopeful for a bright future for India but ppl like the OP need to stop using the past as some 'revenge' motive when in reality, it's buried. The British do not want to retake India and America already tried to Silicon Valley-ize the South with banal results back in the 90s and 00s.

The only enemy here is Islam because they still live in the year 700 AD.

So let's bury the sword and move into the Information Age.

Depends on definition...Indo-europeans spread from Caspian steppes into Europe and Indostan at about the same time, so just as well we can say that Indians are European, or Europeans are Indian. Furthermore, we can get into semantic arguments that these Indoeuropeans are not the original Europeans, as they partially displaced/assimilated/killed off original, Stone-age Europe inhabitants who were by that time mixed with Near-East farmers (the only original European language that survives from that time is Basque, and the only parts of Europe with substantial genetics from European Stone age inhabitants are near Baltic Sea).

Here's the thing, Malaysia is in direct competition with Singapore, which is seen as an inferior culture to a Chinese majority city-state country. Yes, in southeast Asia, Chinese believe that they are the smart, hard working 'white' orientals whereas Malays are seen as being more lazy.

And as for Bahrain, being you might say "in the zone" between Persia and Arabia, they see their Persian side (whatever that means in terms of modern times) as the superior culture because they're always reminded of King Abdullah's Sharia state of Saudi, right next door, which for them will always be a backwater over being a former British protectorate.

So these places also have colonial baggage, as well as feuds among ethnicities.

Unlike India, however, corporate America didn't throw 'em billions of dollars to build up a Silicon Valley around Bangalore post-Indira/Rajiv Gandhi.

I have a friend, an Indian-American, who personally threw Wipro out of his company, during the past decade, because he was pissed off at the lack of business savvy and ability to deliver without a laundry list of excuses and complaints. In the end, he told his Wipro liaison that the Indian offshoring firm ran a body shop and not one of value added services which is how a company is suppose to dominate a market space in information technology. The British Empire did not create this problem circa 2010.

Almost as convincing as a politifact debunking. Try to follow along: India got its foundational Hindu texts, and written language, from westerners. Perhaps near-westerners (Iranians) and perhaps farther afield. Anything subsequent to 2000+ years ago would be post-mixing and credited to India. You began this thread claiming that Vedic agricultural methods ("organic farming") were "plagiarized" from India and brought to the west. That deserved a round laugh given the origin of Sanskrit.
